Tesla Cybertruck delayed until at least next year, Elon Musk confirms

Tesla’s Cybertruck and Roadster will be delayed to “hopefully next year,” the company’s CEO Elon Musk said in an earnings call Wednesday. The announcement confirms earlier reports that the electric pickup truck would miss its earlier production date of late 2022.

“If we were to introduce new vehicles, our total vehicle output will decrease,” Musk said. “We will not be introducing new vehicle models this year.”

Indications that the Cybertruck would be delayed first emerged last August, when the online reservation page was changed and then later withdrawn from the site. Musk said in early 2021 that few trucks would be delivered to customers by the end of that year, but no deliveries were ever made.

The Cybertruck has already gone through some changes since the reveal — including the addition of a comically oversized single windshield wiper, traditional folding mirrors, and invisible door handles that a leaked walkaround video this week provided a closer look of.

Musk also tweeted last night that he was driving the latest prototype
