It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly two years since the introduction of the Tesla Cybertruck, where Elon Musk took a sledge to the stainless steel body of the stealth-fighter prototype before bashing the window with a metal ball. Some thought it would be released in 2021 before news of its delay until 2022. Well, time is quickly slipping by and there’s no hope of a Cybertruck roaming the streets any time soon. To be fair, Tesla has until December 31, 2022 to make its promise happen.
Yet, fans continue to believe that the Cybertruck “delay” is just that—a delay. Meanwhile, other electric truck manufacturers have fast-tracked their EV trucks and are already waving goodbye to the wedge-shaped truck. Tesla will still take your $100 fully refundable deposit for the general Cybertruck, but the once-live Cybertruck configurator is now off-line and has been replaced by a notification stating, “You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in 2022.” Maybe Tesla can’t achieve the advertised Cybertruck prices, maybe it’s revamping options, or … who knows?
Pushing aside these fundamental questions regarding the Cybertruck’s future, brief footage of a Tesla Cybertruck testing at an alleged unconfirmed California location has recently surfaced, sparking a discussion on the Cybertruck Owners Club Forum. The brief video shows the prototype Cybertruck make a tight left turn on a barren tarmac and then come to a stop shortly thereafter.
