Tesla is finally preparing for manufacturing a whopping 375,000 Cybertrucks every year, with candidate models slated to hit the market by the end of August.
The timeline on it’s official website suggests that consumers may expect their Cybertruck to be delivered at the conclusion of the third quarter, which is around the end of September 2023.
Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, recently forecasted the production of Tesla Cybertrucks at Tesla’s annual shareholder meeting. His initial estimate was that 250,000 new cars could be produced annually, but he subsequently changed it to from 250,000 and 500,000.
Electrek reports that internal emails and supplier messaging Tesla sent to suppliers of the Cybertruck project, which it referred to as “Project Everest,” indicate Tesla asked suppliers to plan to meet a basic production capacity of 375,000 Cybertrucks per year.
This appears to be more extreme than what Musk said in public at Tesla’s annual shareholder meeting, but Tesla has been continuously making adjustments, so this is within a fair range.
Base on the communications with suppliers,Tesla intends to release the first Cybertruck candidate models, often referred to as “pre-production vehicles,” around the end of August.
This is also the final step before the start of manufacturing. According to the current schedule, Cybertruck’s official mass manufacturing should begin in early October.
Tesla suppliers also pointed out that Tesla deliveries are only available to Tesla employees and Tesla insiders, just as they were when the Model Y was first introduced.
