Per Elon Musk on the 2022 Q4 earnings call:

Elon:

Cybertruck will have HW4. HW3 to HW4 retrofit is not needed.
For 2023 Cybertruck will not be a significant contributor to the bottom line, but it will be next year (2024).
I can't wait to drive it. It's the car I will drive personally.
We do expect production to start some time this summer.
Volume production (which is more important) won't happen until 2024.
More Beta Cybertrucks are coming next month.

From my understanding from the call...they will have the giga press and other lines for general assembly installed and will be building some validation betas CT prob at the end of next month.

Which makes sense if they want to start production in summer. They would have 3 months to test the crap out of these betas with the castings.

All new betas should be coming out of Austin from now on. Also i doubt they will camouflage these betas so we should see pretty much the final versions out and about. Hopefully parked somewhere to get measurements and other specs before reveal.

So what's the chance of deliveries of 40k order numbers this year? 50/50?

40,000 order numbers, which is where I get mine. Just wondering if I should book a flight for this Christmas to pick it up.

If you are 40k in line and say 60% of the early orders don't complete which puts u about 16,000 in line yeah u might get urs.
Before people get all huffy saying 60% is too high please remember it's been about 5 years. People die, they get married, they have a kid, that kid grows up and goes to college. Interest rates go up, stock market goes down, they get laid off from Twitter.
There is a world of difference between putting $100 down and then waiting 5 years and then actually purchasing $60,000 vehicle.
