Elon Musk Says Much-Anticipated Cybertruck Will Start Rolling Off The Assembly Line In 2023

It's hard to believe, but it's been 3 years since Elon Musk originally announced that Tesla was going to make a "cybertruck" which looks undoubtedly like a truck of the future.

New York Times

I know, lots of you think it's ugly. I just think it's super cool and futuristic looking. I would drive one of these.

At an event at his "Gigafactory" in Texas, Musk announced that the much-anticipated truck would launch in 2023.

From Yahoo:

Tesla will finally start selling the Cybertruck next year, Elon Musk has announced at the opening party for the company's Giga Texas factory. During his presentation on stage, Musk showed off the production Cybertruck vehicle, which still looks like the previous versions, except its doors no longer have handles. The car will be able to tell that you're there and will know that it's supposed to open the doors. He also apologized for the delay on releasing the Cybertruck that was first announced back in 2019. Tesla's original (and highly optimistic) target release date was 2021, but it delayed the vehicle's launch to 2022, and now to 2023.

Better late than never, I suppose.

It's hard to believe that it will be 4 years since the announcement before Tesla will actually deliver the first cybertruck.

But after this many delays, I am hopeful that Musk is coming out with a phenomenal vehicle ... which, to be sure, it seems that he is.

The automaker will manufacture the Cybertruck at its Texas Gigafactory, which it expects to become the "highest volume" car factory in America. Musk touched upon its other planned Gigactories around the world, as well, and how manufacturing vehicles near where they're going to be shipped is much more environmentally friendly. This year is all about scaling up production โ€” a scale that "no company has ever achieved in the history of humanity," Musk said during the presentation โ€” while next year is all about releasing a "massive wave of new products."

I mean, I can see why you'd want to wait until you moved away from California and got your factory up and running in Texas.

Could there even be a more appropriate place to make the truck of the future?

In addition to the Cybertruck, the company also plans to release the Tesla Semi EV next year, as well as other products it hasn't revealed yet. The electric big rig that's designed to haul cargo across long distances was supposed to be released in 2019, but its launch also got pushed back a few times. Tesla's Optimus humanoid robot will also start production in 2023, Musk said, and will be designed to accomplish any task humans don't want to do. Another future product we can apparently look forward is a dedicated robotaxi that will be designed to look quite futuristic. Before all those, however, Tesla will be launching a wide beta of its Full Self-driving Technology in North America this year.

So it's not only the Cybertruck that will come from these "gigafactories." Musk plans to release an electric big-rig as well as a humanoid robot.

Okay, we love Elon here at Not the Bee, but I'd like some reassurances that we aren't about to launch a Terminator scenario here.

In all honesty, this is really cool tech and it's exciting to see the United States produce such amazing gizmos.
