Tesla will not be able to mass produce its two new cars – Cybertruck and Roadster – at least until 2023.

First, Elon Musk announced the delay in the release of the Tesla Roadster. The company is experiencing a shortage of components, so it is simply impossible to establish production. In addition, it will become possible only if 2022 is not "mega drama," Musk said.

The situation is similar with the long-awaited Cybertruck model. The new production date for it is reported by Electrek, citing knowledgeable sources. The production of Cybertruck has been postponed until the end of 2022, but mass production of the pickup truck will not begin until 2023. The issue lies in the fact that it is difficult to establish an entirely new production process, as well as the above-mentioned lack of components.

Some experts point out that the delay of Cybertruck's release could hit the company hard as competitors will release their electric pickups earlier. On the other hand, none of them looks as cool as Cybertruck, so Elon Musk will still get his share of popularity. It should be noted that as of August 2021, the company already has over 1 million pre-orders for the vehicle.

Elon Musk Unveiled a Humanoid Robot Tesla Bot
Tesla Bot will use the same chips and sensors used in the company’s electric vehicles. Musk says Tesla can now be considered the world’s largest robotics company because its electric vehicles are practically semi-intelligent robots on wheels.

Elon Musk first unveiled the concept of Cybertruck in November 2019. Back then, the production was scheduled to begin at the end of 2021. However, the deadlines were repeatedly delayed. The last time the production date was postponed was in August.

Elon Musk has previously made it clear that the company would face production problems due to the design features of Cybertruck. The frame structure with stainless steel body panels, as well as bulletproof glass, will certainly create difficulties for the mass production of a vehicle with an unusual angular design.

According to the plan, Tesla's electric pickup will come in three versions: with one, two, or three motors. The less powerful version will accelerate to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds, the more powerful version will do that in 2.9 seconds.
