Production of the Tesla Cybertruck is constantly postponed. This is due to the desire to refine the design of the pickup truck.

The launch of the production of the Tesla Cybertruck was postponed again. The Tesla electric pickup truck will be put on the assembly line of the company in Texas in March 2023. This is reported by Reuters, citing its sources in the company.

Representatives of Tesla reported that the next delay is due to the refinement of the Cybertruck design and changes in a number of its characteristics and functions. Thus, they want to make the Tesla pickup truck more competitive.

It also became known that initially, in the first quarter of 2023, a limited batch of electric cars will be released, and only then they will switch to mass production.

Recall that the start date of the Tesla Cybertruck assembly is not postponed for the first time. Initially, at the presentation of the pickup truck in 2019, Elon Musk said that it would be produced from 2021. Meanwhile, the model already has competitors from Ford, Rivian, Chevrolet, and Hummer.

The serial Tesla Cybertruck pickup truck is currently undergoing testing. The car has been repeatedly photographed by paparazzi and the photo shows the differences from the concept car.
