I think start deliveries in his context almost sounded like to real customers. And less like an event. But it might be wishful thinking

I can’t wait to see the official EPA MPGe numbers for various Cybertruck electric motor combinations, battery packs and tire sizes.

The 2023 Dual Motor R1T gets 352 miles of range with the large battery pack and 21” tires. Will the Dual Motor Cybertruck beat the R1T numbers?

Tesla Cybertruck Cybertruck deliveries start in October says Tesla employee / Cybertruck test driver ADFCE2A9-C24F-4D06-8AA1-8E68A63E69F3

October is q4. if elon has to spend an extra $5 million to have 1 ready to deliver on September 30th, he will
Sorry but that isn’t going to happen. I would recommend reading @cvalue13 recent post but if you believe nothing else the fact that no application for an event has been submitted to Travis County or to the fire Marshall, and that they have as 45 day lead time, tells us that the delivery event wil most likely be no sooner than the end of October and more likely in November. Sad but true.

False...

Quote Elon when he was asked when the Cybertruck delivery event will occur, "When we are ready to do so, we will," Musk wrote on X. "It is an extremely difficult product to build."

There is no way he is going to rush and deliver an unfinished product. If there are more tests that need to be done, then they will be.

Quite often, more money thrown on the project will not help rush the product, if it isn't ready.

Agreed. A good example is the electric tonneau cover on the R1T.

Many felt the complex cover needed more design and engineering time to perfect yet they retailed the R1T to the public.

After tons of owner complaints about failures It’s now going through a redesign and should be available early next year. Rivian says they are going to make things right for the original owners but that move is going to cost Rivian $$$$.

Sorry to be a wet blanket, but I do think this is wishful thinking.

The normal way is to do a "soft roll-out" to employees, and then a few months later start delivering to actual customers. So if deliveries start next month I would expect customers to start seeing them early next year,

Agreed.

"Quite often, more money thrown on the project will not help rush the product, if it isn't ready."

It is a manager's point of view rather than an engineer's point of view. In engineering forcing a timeline only reduces the functionality or quality of a product, but that doesn't stop people from saying it over and over again.

Agreed.

Tesla employees and suppliers will have first crack at deliveries and will probably required to sign a 3-6 month NDA like Rivian did with the first batch of R1T’s.
