Tesla is about to start delivering Cybertrucks to customers.
Yes, we know you’ve heard this before; after years of delays, CEO Elon Musk said the company would have a delivery event in the third quarter of 2023. Never happened.
But now, the company has officially announced the date when this will happen: The Cybertruck delivery event will be held on Nov. 30, 2023, at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Austin, Texas.

Besides sharing a promo poster for the event on Twitter, Tesla also tweeted that “Cybertruck production remains on track for later this year, with first deliveries scheduled for November 30th at Giga Texas.”
It’s not all rosy. During Tesla’s Q3 earnings call on Wednesday, Musk said that ramping up the production for Cybertruck presents “enormous challenges.” The company plans to produce 250,000 Cybertrucks per year, but it will get to that number in about 18 months.

The Cybertruck, a steel-plated, odd-shaped, electric SUV, was originally announced in 2019, with production scheduled to start in 2021. Fast forward a couple of years, and we’re finally seeing Cybertrucks in the wild; most recently Tesla took a couple of them for a spin on an off-road track in Baja California.
