Where oh where is Tesla’s Cybertruck? Or, more to the point, when?
The electric carmaker’s website dedicated to all things about the cyber-punk electric pickup keeps getting more and more vague about the EV’s production schedule.
Back in October Tesla wiped the Cybertruck site of all pricing and model information, but kept a crucial detail: a production start time in 2022.
Now if you go to the same order page, you’ll notice that where it once said, “You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in 2022” it only states, “You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears.”

The change has some reservation holders worried about an even further delayed production schedule, as auto site Edmunds noted. The truck was first announced in 2019.
The 2022 deletion appears to have happened right before Christmas, based on a search using the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine tool. The Cybertruck is supposed to be built at Tesla’s newest gigafactory in Austin, Texas. But the factory is still prepping for car production with tools and equipment still coming in as recently as this week.
We reached out to Tesla about Cybertruck production plans, but the company no longer has a communications team. Neither CEO Elon Musk nor the official Tesla account have tweeted any updates about the electric truck.
