Will Tesla's Cybertruck to start mass production at end of 2023 ?

Two sources with knowledge of the project told Reuters that Tesla (TSLA.O) intends to

begin mass production of its Cybertruck by the end of 2023, two years later than

the original target for the eagerly anticipated pickup truck Chief Executive Elon Musk introduced in 2019.

The new model will be built at Tesla's Austin, Texas, plant, with "early production"

expected to begin in the middle of 2023, the company announced last month.

In a conference call with financial analysts, Musk declared, "We're in the final lap for Cybertruck."

According to a different source, Cybertruck was made to work with Tesla's highly praised 4680 batteries.

However, according to Sam Abuelsamid of Guidehouse Insights,

Tesla has not been able to considerably increase the manufacture of its own batteries,

which could cause Cybertrucks to be further delayed past the year 2023.

To move to standard 2170 batteries, Tesla may need to radically alter the Cybertruck batteries, he added.
