If you were waiting for 2022 to get your Cybertruck, there is bad news. According to Reuters, Tesla has delayed the production date of Cybertruck to the end of the first quarter of 2023.
This is the second (maybe third) time that Tesla pushed back its plan to begin production of its all-steel vehicle.
The reason for the delay is that Tesla is making different changes in the features and functions of the Cybertruck. It seems that the company felt strong competition with other electric pickup companies.

The production will start slowly with limited numbers of the Cybertruck at the first quarter of 2023, then it will increase gradually.
In electric sedans and sport utility vehicles, Tesla is number one in the world. But in an electric pickup truck, it still has a lot to do about it. Especially with the existence of two of the most powerful companies, Ford Motor, and Rivian Automotive.
At the beginning of this year, Ford said that it will double its annual production capacity for its electric pickup F-150 Lightning, to reach 150,000 vehicles this spring at the dealers of U.S.
Recently, Tesla has removed the production date of Cybertruck from its order website.
The company is going to produce the Cybertruck in their Texas factory.
