Tesla is preparing the pilot Cybertruck production line and planning details for its production at the Fremont factory. Once all the equipment is installed at Giga Texas, a trained, ready-for-work team will immediately begin production from June 2021.
Trial production of Cybertruck can begin as early as June 2021, first deliveries could occur in Q32021 and mass production could be in Q42021.
Elon Musk had tweeted that the Semi truck might be delayed to 2022 because of battery constraints. Up to 10 Gigawatt hours of 4680 batteries should be produced at Kato Road in Fremont. Those batteries are first going to the trimotor Cybertruck and plaid versions of Model S and Model X.
“Semi would typically use five times the number of cells that a car would use, but it would not sell for five times what a car would sell for. So it kind of doesn’t make…it would not make sense for us to do the Semi right now,” Musk said.
The trimotor Cybertruck will use 200 kwh of batteries and sells for $69,900.
