Unless you live in the United States, Canada, or Mexico, you can no longer order Tesla Cybertruck.
This includes Australia, where the option to keep a refundable $ 150 deposit on electric camels has been removed.
Tesla releases an “Get Update” button instead of visiting the Australian website.
“We have more orders for the first cybertracks that we could probably meet three years after we start production,” CEO Elon Musk said at the Financial Times Future of the Car 2022 conference last week.
Cybertracks have been repeatedly delayed, if not to the same extent as Semi and Roadster.
The company’s most recent word is that Cybertrack will enter production in 2023 at the company’s new plant in Austin, Texas.
“We will not introduce new car models this year. It doesn’t make sense because we’re still limited in parts, “he said in a fourth-quarter 2021 earnings call in January.
“However, we will do a lot of engineering and tooling, what not to do to make these vehicles: Cybertruck, Semi, Roadster, Optimus, and hopefully we will be ready to bring them into production next year.
“It’s probably the most.”
It is not clear if Australian (and global) orders have been suspended simply because of overwhelming demand or for some other reason. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The unconventional styling of cybertracks may go against the rules of Australian design. Since its release, Tesla has made some major changes to prototypes, including a larger windscreen wiper and external mirrors.
Specifications were removed from the Tesla website late last year, and pricing was removed from the US site.
Prior to the page update, which affected all global Tesla sites, three variants were listed on the Tesla page for cybertracks: a single-motor rear-wheel drive model and a dual- and tri-motor all-wheel drive model.
The Tri-Motor AWD claimed 1600kg with a Tri-Motor AWD with a range of 800km, 6.4t towing capacity and a 2.9-second sprint at 60mph (96.6km / h).
In the United States, they were priced at US $ 39,900, $ 49,900, and $ 69,900 (A $ 53,705, $ 67,165, and $ 94,085, respectively). That base price was about $ 3000 more than a base model 3 in the United States.
Mask was unclear about whether his company would offer a smaller UT for markets such as Australia and Europe.
In August 2020, he said Automotive News He described the cybertrack as “basically” a North American ass-kicker, but said that a more conventional-looking pickup was the “fallback strategy.”
“If it turns out that no one wants to buy a weird looking truck, we’ll make a simple truck, no problem,” he said, adding that the polarizing styling of cybertracks could alienate customers.
In September 2020, he added: “We will probably create an international version that is smaller.”
“It would still be cool, it would just be small, because you can’t build a huge truck like this for the international market.”
Subsequently, he showed off a small pickup on Twitter, posting, “Even 3% small is too small”.
Although it was released in 2019 and was initially announced to enter production in 2021, production has not yet begun.
That means Tesla is marketed with an electric pickup truck by the choice of legacy automakers such as US startup Revian (The R1T) and GM (GMC Hummer EV) and Ford (F-150 Lightning).
