Will we finally see Tesla Cybertrucks on the streets soon? While it will probably still be a long time before it arrives in French dealerships, the Californian electric pickup is getting closer to an effect of production. Good news, while it has already been several years since the latter was officially revealed to the public, without any launch date being really respected.
Admittedly, this is starting to become a well-known habit among Elon Musk fans, who are still starting to get impatient. But now the latter wanted to inform them and give them some news about his new pick-up. And good news, it should not take long to land on the roads, at least in the United States, according to our colleagues at InsideEVs.
And for good reason, Elon Musk gave some information about his newcomer, on the occasion of the inauguration ceremony of the Gigafactory Tesla in Berlin, a few days ago. The businessman then announced that “we want to complete the development of the Cybertruck this year and be ready for production next year.” An announcement that should then please fans of the brand, while the pick-up was originally planned for last year.
A few months earlier, Tesla had confirmed the delay by updating the mentions at the bottom of the page of its website, announcing that the configurator would be accessible at the beginning of production, in 2022. A promise was finally not kept by the Californian firm, as was already the case on several occasions. Reuters was betting on the 2023 vintage.
Here, Elon Musk corroborates the Reuters information and tries to reassure the crowds by reconfirming the commercial calendar of the vehicle.
As a reminder, the Tesla Cybertruck was officially revealed in the year 2019, creating general surprise with its look for the least surprising and divisive. Having changed little since then, the latter is still in development and has now been spotted with mirrors and windshield wipers, showing that it is finally getting closer to production. Made of laminated stainless steel, the pickup has a 1.98-meter-long dumpster.
Three versions will be available, with one, two, or three engines. The range can then reach more than 800 kilometers on the most efficient version, which then achieves 0 to 100 km / h in less than three seconds.
