Tesla has removed all references to a 2022 Cybertruck release from its website. This change comes ahead of an update to the product roadmap, suggesting that Tesla could potentially delay Cybertruck production again.
As you may know, the Cybertruck was originally slated for a 2021 release. But Tesla recently pushed production back to 2022 and removed EV pricing options from its website. The company also announced some new features and changes for the vehicle, likely because the electric pickup market has changed significant since the Cybertruck was first announced in 2019.
Product roadmap update at next earnings call
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 3, 2021
Thankfully, Tesla plans to unveil an updated product roadmap during its Jan. 26 conference call. Elon Musk previously stated that he would skip Tesla earnings calls, but he appeared to change his mind after the company removed Cybertruck’s pricing and configuration options from its website in December.
While there’s no guarantee that Tesla will announce a new release date for the Cybertruck during its earnings call, the company’s product roadmap should give us a deeper look at the electric pickup’s new features and pricing. We also expect Tesla to explain how Tesla will deal with customers who have reserved the Cybertruck before making price changes or configuration options.
Now, I should make it clear that these cybertruck issues don’t reflect Tesla’s overall performance as a company. Tesla reportedly delivered 81% more cars in 2021 than it did in 2020, and its sales far dwarf rival EV companies. It only falls behind in the electric truck market, where Rivian and Ford are at the top with virtually no competition.
