Tesla, known globally for manufacturing electric vehicles, has communicated its plans to suppliers with an impressive target. The company aims to manufacture 375,000 units of its Cybertruck pickup every year. In terms of timelines, Tesla expects the first wave of these advanced vehicles to hit the market as early as the end of August 2023.
Tesla enthusiasts have been craving detailed information about the Cybertruck pickup for some time now. It’s not news that the pickup will break into the market this year. Yet, getting a grasp on more exact figures adds a dash of excitement to the wait.
Even if you’re not on the list of those waiting for a Tesla Cybertruck, the truck is set to roll out earlier than many anticipated. The electric car giant has an impressive tally of over 1.5 million Cybertruck pre-orders, a number that shows no sign of slowing down. It was recently confirmed by Tesla that we can expect the Cybertruck’s debut this year, most likely in the late third quarter.
In a recent shareholder meeting, Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, shed some light on production numbers. Musk estimated an annual Cybertruck production around 250,000 units. He further elaborated that this figure could vary, potentially ranging from 250,000 to 500,000 units. Consequently, an annual production figure of 375,000 units seems to be a reasonable expectation.
However, observing how Tesla navigates its first steps in producing this number of units and the time it takes to reach full production will be fascinating. Tesla’s current aim is to commence full-scale production of the Cybertruck at the onset of October 2023.
