Musk said engineering is complete

If the press gets installed by October, and if 4680's are available.. Are there any reasons why the first sales won't be within say 4 months ?

Look at Rivian's experience. They were running test production around as mules and then as the actual production trucks in the hands of employees for over a year before any were delivered to customers. It takes time to work out kinks in the vehicle and in the manufacturing process. Look at how extensive the Rivian "punch list" is even so.

After the press is put back together... establish assembly run, tune assembly run , crash testing, final component durability trials, homologation (baja!)... My bet I'd say 8-9 months after the first test castings employees will have first stab at ownership, 45 days after that it opens up to Texas sales like the Y. That's when it will be officially considered to be "delivering"

Then were off to the races 30-45 days after that.

Off the top of my head; Assembly line production issues, Beta testing, Crash testing, EPA testing, body panel bending [email protected] beat me too it while I was typing.

Ok.. A consensus.

6-8 months after the first cast.

Depending on how quickly the press could be put together, we are looking between March and Jun delivery.

To account for Rivians year of Testing, Elon said Engineering is complete, and we have seen the CT getting worked on for ages now. I'd say that stage is happening now.

Casts are aluminium not stainless steel. The stainless body panels will be folded.
I agree. It was Elon who, when asked about the 9,000 ton press, said "It's for the Cybertruck body". not the Cybertruck cast rear or front or even Cybertruck casting. He specified "Cybertruck body" which was odd to me.

Because the cast rear is part of the body?
