Now the billionaire confirmed in a conference call with shareholders of Tesla what the launch will be postponedwith production possibly starting as early as next year.
Cybertruck officially postponed
According to the statements of the automaker’s CEO, he points out that one of the impediments to the launch of your pickup is the company’s current production limitation, that if it “introduces new vehicles, our total vehicle production will decrease”. The main production factor cited by the company is its ability to produce batteries, which is limiting total production.
But Elon Musk also points out that, in addition to the limited production of Teslathe company believes that people are still not willing to pay the amount that the vehicle would leave. That’s why they’re making an effort to leave the cybertruck with the most affordable value possible, it is worth remembering that the company promised the model for only US$ 39,900, R$ 213,000.

As the release date removal has been confirmed as a postponement, it is possible to assume that the model value will also change.
