Who else thinks they're going to miss this deadline and it gets delayed again?

A new report from Reuters says Tesla is aiming to begin full Cybertruck mass production by the end of next year. For realsies this time, or so it says. This would only be two years after the initial mass production target was announced by CEO Elon Musk. That easily beats out vehicles like the Semi and new Roadster.

That being said, words are cheap when it comes to Tesla production targets, so we’ll remain skeptical until Cybertrucks actually start rolling off the assembly line in Austin, Texas.

“We’re in the final lap for Cybertruck,” Musk told financial analysts in a conference call.

According to Reuters, a gradual ramp-up in the second half of 2023 will culminate in full output by the end of that year. That would mean the company wouldn’t make any money off the long-awaited Cybertruck until the beginning of 2024 at the earliest.

There’s still no word on exactly how much the Cybertruck will cost people who put down a $100 deposit years ago, but it’s a safe bet that it’ll be well over the initial $40,000 Musk projected it to be.

To be accurate, Tesla is in the final lap of their pre-race "warmup" before they get the green flag at the starting line. Ford's Lightning, Rivian's R1T and GM's Hummer have already started the EV truck race and have at least one race-lap on Tesla. GM's Silverado has finished warming up and doing last-minute tuning before leaving the line next spring, followed right behind with the Sierra. Plus Ram is tuning up to get on the track.

Meanwhile, Elon has a tiger by the tail as Twitter's sole-owner/director and will be immersed in the media-verse for the forseeable future. Recent reports indicate GF Austin, still doesn't have a plant manager. Tesla desperately needs a functional full-time CEO/COO now more than ever.

My money's on them announcing a $50-60k version that will never actually come out or sell for that price and that almost all sales will be over $100k. I also think people are discounting how much competition is going to impact Tesla, especially in the truck market. There's a market for trucks that are basically status symbols that don't actually do truck things looks at the G63 but people that actually just want EV trucks to use like trucks will shop elsewhere.
