Agree 100%. Nothing changed here.Well I don't know what to say. Tesla never suggested there would be anything but early deliveries in 'late 2021'. Unless you work for SpaceX, you weren't likely to get one. Nothing has changed in their messaging.
Who is 'they'? Not Tesla. Elon has said they're still on track to be in full production of the new cells in 12 to 18 months. That's the same thing he said last September. That fits a production ramp-up of Cybertruck from late this year.
First this data is not first hand so it's not reliable. Unless we hear something directly from Tesla, I'm not getting excited one way or another.
Second, we knew for a while that 99.9% of people wouldn't get their cybertrucks in 2021. We knew for sure that volume production would be sometime in 2022.
We shall see what happens but it's better not to be desperately waiting for the CT. It's not going to be a fun wait. In my case, I did not want to wait years to drive a Tesla so I bought a Model 3 while waiting. I'm a happy customer and I'm having fun watching drone videos of the factory being built, reading forums, watching CT Truck guy videos, etc.
If you desperately need a truck this year, just buy a Toyota truck and sell it off when you get your CT. It won't lose too much value and you won't be desperate every time you read bad news about delays, etc.
