Tesla delays initial production of Cybertruck to early 2023 -source

Source: https://www.reuters.com/technology/...tion-cybertruck-early-2023-source-2022-01-13/

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan 13, 2022 6:54 PM EST (Reuters) - Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) aims to start initial production of its much-anticipated Cybertruck by the end of the first quarter of 2023, pushing back its plan to begin production late this year, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

The person said the delay comes as Tesla is changing features and functions of the electric pickup to make a compelling product as competition heats up in the segment.

Tesla is expected to make limited production of the Cybertruck in the first quarter of 2023 before increasing output, the source said.

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Tesla, the world's top electric car maker, makes electric sedans and sport utility vehicles but has missed out on the pickup truck segment, which is profitable and hugely popular in America.

Ford Motor Co (F.N) and Rivian Automotive (RIVN.O) are ahead of Tesla in launching electric pickups.

Ford said early this month it will nearly double annual production capacity for its red-hot F-150 Lightning electric pickup to 150,000 vehicles ahead of its arrival this spring at U.S. dealers.

Ford's market value breached $100 billion for the first time on Thursday when Tesla shares fell 6.7% and Rivian slumped 7.1%. read more

CEO Elon Musk, who unveiled the futuristic vehicle in 2019, had already delayed its production from late 2021 to late 2022.

Musk has said he will provide an updated product road map on Tesla's Jan. 26 earnings call.

"Oh man, this year has been such a supply chain nightmare & it's not over!," he tweeted in late November, when asked about the Cybertruck.

Tesla recently removed a reference to its production schedule from its Cybertruck order website. Last month, the website said, "You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in 2022." Now "in 2022" has been omitted.

Tesla plans to produce the Cybertruck at its factory in Texas, which is expected to start production of Model Y cars early this year.

Anonymous source stated production to begin with reservation number 190,000. Trust me… errr… trust the anonymous source.

Production will start when it starts. I am betting limited start at end of this year. I’m optimistic on production line equipment and delivery setup. Investing strategy is production starting in 2023. I am conservative with money.

Can we just bookmark this thread and revisit in 2 weeks?

Hard to get excited one way or the other about a rumor when we’re getting an update with actual official details in 13 days 12 days.

I can see why Elon doesn't talk to the media.
"Ford said early this month it will nearly double annual production capacity for its red-hot F-150 Lightning electric pickup to 150,000 vehicles ahead of its arrival this spring at U.S. dealers."

Even electrek who has access to the press releases and Ford PR whiffed. On elektrek's own site, it says

"Ford doubles Lightning production again to 150,000 units per year by 2023, 600K BEVs annually by 2024"

Instead of the rather important detail of 2023, they regurgitated the crafted bullet point from the Ford PR release.

"Ford is planning to nearly double production capacity of the all-electric F-150 Lightning™ pickup to 150,000 vehicles per year at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan, to meet soaring customer demand."

I'd expect less from elektrek but this article is from Reuters and they regurgitated the bullet point too.

When Tesla's run rate blows away Ford, there will be just be more copy paste news.

Been over two years, “still waiting” and looking as if Tesla is repeating history…
