After more than four years of waiting, hundreds of thousands of customers are waiting for the electric pickup to be delivered, but only a few will be the lucky ones.
The deadline indicated by Tesla on the calendar for the official reveal of the Cybertruck is approaching. We are referring to next November 30, the day the electric pickup will be unveiled during a massive event that will feature Elon Musk as master of ceremonies.
During the day, the first deliveries will be made to customers, which, according to a company official, will only correspond to 10 units. Much less than expected given the very high amount of reserves weighing on the zero-emission truck.
Last October, the first production Cybertruck was auctioned off at the 29th Petersen Auto Museum Gala, presented by Jay Leno. There, the coveted specimen found its owner for no less than $400,000.
While there is no official data, some estimates suggest there are nearly two million reservations for the Tesla pickup. And the conditions for requesting a unit are not particularly demanding, given that you only have to pay $100, which can be refunded if you decline the purchase.
Thus, the bottleneck is guaranteed. It is even estimated that the most late customers will have to wait another four years for their precious electric pick-up to be delivered. Especially since we know the revealing data from first day deliveries, which predict a slower production rate than expected, but which is not very high.
Javier Verdura, director of product design at Tesla, assured that it would take 18 months to increase the production rate to 5,000 units per week, the goal for 2025.
