Tesla Cybertruck Sold Out Until 2027 – Torque News
Tesla Cybertruck Sold Out Until 2027
According to The Electric Viking, the Tesla Cybertruck is sold out until 2027. That means about 5 years of waiting to get your Cybertruck if you order right now. Why is the wait time so long? We’ll go over than and more, now.
By the end of 2022, Tesla will most likely start official production of the Cybertruck. Elon Musk said volume production may take until the end of 2023 and into 2024. He has also said that fulfilling all of the deliveries may take until 2027.
Elon’s timelines haven’t always been correct – his original timeline on the Cybertruck was for 2021. The Electric Viking made his Cybertruck reservation on the first day that the Cybertruck was unveiled.
It’s not likely that the prices shown on the first day and order pages for the Cybertruck will hold. Supply chains and material increases in costs will make the cost of the Cybertruck more. There is also issues with supply chains and raw materials being in enough supply. That is why there is such a long wait. That is the bad news.
The Good News
There is some good news though – Tesla has had time – extra time – to perfect the Cybertruck – like doors without handles, rear wheel steering, and video to the Cybertruck. This makes the Cybertruck much more practical than any other vehicle.
Elon has mentioned that there will be a dual motor and quad motor version only. Having an electric motor for every wheel will give the Cybertruck some amazing handling. Elon Musk has also stated that the Cybertruck will have a number of post apocalyptic features.
Tesla will probably get rid of the single motor variant. It makes sense to do this. A truck needs extra motors to get better range and to handle towing. Most people who buy a Cybertruck will be towing or hauling something around most likely.
Initial production will start with the 4 motor variant with a fast response control of each wheel. I think those that have ordered the tri-motor variant will get contacted to see if they want to switch to the quad motor variant.
My guess for the cost of the quad motor variant will be between $90,000 and $100,000. That will put it out of the reach of many people and hopefully the dual motor will be $70,000 or less. I have a Cybertruck on order and am hoping to get the quad motor version. I am going to have to save up a lot of money to do this!
What do you think about the Cybertruck being sold out until 2027? Will people be able to change their order to a quad motor variant?
