By Alexa Heah, 17 Jul 2023
After two years of setbacks, Tesla has finally completed the production of its highly-anticipated Cybertruck at its Texas Gigafactory. The company took to Twitter to share the milestone and revealed plans to ramp up production to 250,000 vehicles per year, depending on customer demand.
Most of the delays were primarily attributed to design changes and component modifications that were necessary to ensure the final product was ready for the roads. Despite the delays, according to Insider, Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently reassured investors that the end result surpassed their high standards.

While the exact price of the Cybertruck remains uncertain, it is expected to exceed the initial estimate of US$40,000 announced back in 2019. It’s no secret that the vehicle has garnered significant interest, with an estimated 1.9 million preorders based on a crowdsourced reservation tracker.
With production now complete, sales of the Cybertruck are set to begin later this year. Fingers crossed, Tesla enthusiasts and prospective buyers will soon get the opportunity to take the vehicle cruising on highways.
