Reservation holders for the Tesla Cybertruck received a brief update on the impending electric truck.

The Tesla Cybertruck is a battery-electric, fully electric, light-duty utility truck announced by Tesla, Inc. Three models were announced, with an estimated EPA range of 400-800 kilometers (250-500 mi) and a predicted acceleration of 2.9-6.5 seconds from 0-100 kilometers (0-62 mi), depending on the model. When Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck as early as 2019, Tesla said that Cybertruck will hit the market before the end of 2021. CEO Elon Musk subsequently said Tesla was targeting a Cybertruck production launch at the end of 2022, in Gigafactory, Texas. In March 2022, it was confirmed Tesla was targeting to finish Cybertruck development that year with a goal to have production ready by 2023, while in June, CEO Elon Musk said Tesla was targeting mid-2023 to begin production.

Previously, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the Cybertruck would be ready for mass production in 2023, during a rodeo party at Tesla’s opening of its Austin, Texas, Gigafactory, following numerous delays. CEO Elon Musk said manufacturing improvements, including the evolving design for Tesla’s new Structural Battery Pack, are continuing and will be integrated into the long-delayed Cybertruck pickup truck when it goes into production at Teslas Austin, Texas, factory. Tesla CEO Elon Musks said Teslas working on a new air suspension for Cybertruck, and that the air suspension will be longer-travel for off-road uses. During an earnings call with analysts, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said his highly anticipated Cybertruck would benefit from Tesla’s lessons in improving efficiency across the entire production process.

The Tesla Cybertrucks distinctive design immediately grabbed the headlines when it was unveiled, and CEO Elon Musk has been fairly consistent about how the fully electric pickup will be one of Tesla’s greatest creations to date. While it looks like Elon Musks Tesla Cybertruck was designed by a PS1-era video game developer with a vengeance for curves, it still looks set to deliver on everything that makes a Tesla a Tesla. Asked to provide updates about the promised Tesla pickup, Tesla CEO Elon Musks provided some intriguing details about the forthcoming electric pickup and revealed a few changes that would be made to the concept before it went into production. While it would be easy to write off recent comments from Tesla CEO Elon Musk on the Tesla Cybertruck as his typical over-optimistic assessments, there are plenty of signs that Tesla is setting the stage for production on the Cybertruck.

During Teslas Q2 earnings call Wednesday, CEO Elon Musk offered updates on a number of products, including the time frame when the much-delayed Cybertruck pickup truck would be available. None of us were entirely prepared when Elon Musk unveiled the sleek, curvy Cybertruck; Teslas still got no official 2021 launch date, though. Unfortunately, we simply do not know when Teslas Cybertruck will finally be arriving, or what delays (and the reveal of the new four-motor model) mean for production timelines of dual-motor and single-motor models. While Tesla has not disclosed their Cybertruck production targets, there is every chance that Cybertruck will begin with low volumes.

We will also need to wait until we have a real-world production model in hand to test out Teslas Cybertruck’s ambitious driving range goal in the real world. Tesla has already confirmed the one-motor model will deliver 250 miles of range, which is the minimum that Elon Musk says Tesla will allow. True to Elon Musks’ words, the Teslas Semi truck will offer 500 miles of range, though no word on just how massive a battery pack it will have to be to reach that number.

The Tesla Cybertrucks driving range will vary depending on how many motors are installed, but Tesla says a single motor has a range of 250-plus miles, dual motors boast a 300-plus-mile range, and a tri-motor configuration at its highest level should deliver over 500 miles per charge. Its Cybertruck also promises a 2.9-second zero-to-60 time, along with 500 miles of range on a single charge – although the site does not clarify whether that is the case with a single, double, or tri-motor setup. Tesla’s single-motor model could get from nil to 60 miles per hour in less than 6.5 seconds, according to its claims.

Teslas Cybertruck uses a self-leveling suspension that adjusts to the varying loads, and some models have four-wheel drive. The truck’s bed has sloped side walls and a roller-shutter-style integrated tonneau cover that is powered by an electric motor, improving the aerodynamics of the vehicle. The interior of the Cybertruck is a typical Tesla minimalist cockpit, with almost no switchgear visible in this early interior photo (below).

The Tesla Cybertrucks’ main draw will be its steel exoskeleton, which Tesla says is made from cold-rolled, 30-grade stainless steel–presumably, the hardest stuff Tesla can find. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, though, stressed that Cybertruck, the highly anticipated vehicle, would be built at the Tesla Gigafactory in Austin (inset, bottom left), just as it was initially announced as far back as 2019.

In the Tesla Cybertrucks top 3 motor/four-wheel-drive form for 2022, the new Cybertruck will run for 500 miles on a full charge, jump from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds, and haul a 14,000-pound tow truck. During the Tesla Annual Meeting of Stockholders held at the Companys new Austin, Texas, Gigafactory The Companys new Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said, “A lot has changed since 2019, when it first unveiled, to much fanfare, the prototype of a battery-electric Cybertruck in Los Angeles, then started taking reservations for as much as $99.
