All the pieces are literally coming together at Giga Texas as the start of Cybertruck production nears. On Friday more parts to the 9,000 ton IDRA Giga Press were delivered to the factory in Austin.

The new parts were once again spotted by drone operator Joe Tegtmeyer, who captured two large deliveries arriving on Friday morning. The large shipping containers are just like others we have seen in the past and are stamped with the IDRA Group logo and feature the same blue cover.

This is at least the second delivery of parts for the Cybertruck’s Giga Press. While Tegtmeyer didn’t capture the first delivery arriving at the factory like this, he was able to catch a glimpse of some parts already sitting inside the factory a few weeks ago.

The arrival of the Giga Press that will be used to cast the Cybertruck’s body is just one piece of the production puzzle, but those other pieces are also coming in to place. A small army of Kuka robots have also arrived at the factory and are sitting inside waiting to be installed.

Tesla has also been publishing numerous job postings related to Cybertruck production, and a leaked image from inside the factory showed off the Cybertruck’s frame for the first time. As of the most recent update from Tesla the Cybertruck is supposed to enter production in mid-2023, and based on all of these developments it looks like Tesla will be able to meet that target.

We will hopefully get a more definitive update from Tesla at the Q4 and 2022 earnings call later this month, but if not there is also the first ever Investor Day coming up in March that would be the perfect opportunity to finally show off the production version of the Cybertruck, which still has not been revealed even though the design was finalized by June last year.
