The dream of many Tesla fans to drive their own Cybertruck may become a reality in the third quarter of 2023, when the company may start to make the first deliveries, according to comments made by CEO Elon Musk during the Q1 2023 earnings call.
The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the most interesting vehicles ever, with its unique appearance that looks like something out of a sci-fi flick. The company has been testing alpha builds of the pickup truck all over California and Texas, and it appears customers are getting closer to driving around this monster truck, with Musk indicating the first set of pre-order holders might receive their EVs at the end of Q3 this year.
Musk made the prediction when an investor asked for updates on the Cybertruck specs and pricing a at Tesla’s Q1 2023 earnings call. The boss said, “Well I think we will save that for the Cybetruck handover which will hopefully be at the end of Q3 this year.”
Musk didn’t miss the chance to hype up the truck, adding, “One thing I can confidently say is that it is an incredible product, it’s a hall of famer, I think. And a product like this only comes along once, once in a long while. People will not be disappointed in it at all, It’s amazing.”
Musk had earlier said the demand for the Cybertruck remained strong, with a survey showing most reservation holders do not plan to cancel. The pickup truck will be made in Giga Texas, with ramp-up expected to take a while due to the process of perfecting the manufacturing process.
