That’s it ! Elon Musk has finally ventured to give a date for the first deliveries of the Cybertruck. The boss of Tesla announces that the first units of his 100% electric pick-up will be delivered “ November 30th ».
Tesla announces first deliveries for November 30
It’s been exactly four years since the Cybertruck was unveiled to the general public. Four long years during which Tesla did everything to keep its fans in suspense. Today we are finally getting closer to the goal. The first examples of the Cybertruck are about to see the light of day. Production started this summer, but one question remains unanswered: what will be the manufacturing rate of the 100% electric pick-up? An essential point to determine its potential profitability.
Initially, Elon Musk had indicated a production of 250,000 copies per year for the Cybertruck. Then, as usual, he then spoke of a capacity of 375,000 copies per year. When the results for the third quarter of 2023 were announced, the Tesla boss revised this objective downward. Initially, the capacity of the American manufacturer’s factories should be 125,000 units per year for the Cybertruck. Then 250,000 by 2025. And surely more in the future.
Fragile profitability for the Cybertruck?
Enough to worry investors about the immediate profitability of the electric model. Elon Musk himself said that “ we dug our own grave with the Cybertruck “. Not very reassuring. The billionaire specifies that it will take time for the production of the pick-up to be profitable and that it will be necessary to be patient. It is even possible that the estimate of 125,000 units produced each year is ambitious.
Regardless, the first Cybertrucks should be delivered on the last day of November. And this should be experienced as a relief, both for early customers and for the manufacturer’s teams who have been working on this project for many years.
