Tesla Cybertruck has been a long time coming and the constant delays have put off a lot of buyers but the wait might finally be over.
The price and release date of the launch of the Tesla Cybertruck have become public. There is hardly an EV that has garnered more attention from potential EV buyers and industry experts than the Tesla Cybertruck. It was first showcased to the public back in 2019, which now seems ages ago. Ever since, Elon Musk has kept delaying the launch plans and we are already in 2023. We still don’t find the futuristic butch electric pickup truck on the roads. But that might change as the release date and the starting price has been made public.

Tesla Cybertruck Price and Release Date
Tesla Tech Central has shared the post on YouTube. As per the information in the video, Tesla has announced that we could see the Cybertruck in Q3 2023. That is good news for the Cybertruck fans, and the news is quite believable since we have spotted the attractive pickup truck out on the roads undergoing rigorous testing quite often now. It looks like Tesla is closing in on the final production-ready version which is why the second half of 2023 could well be when we witness the anticipated Cybertruck on our streets.

Talking about the prices, the single-motor RWD version would most likely be priced at $40,000. While this looks quite promising and enticing, it is still much more expensive than traditional pickup trucks. That could be a challenge for the largest EV maker in the world. In addition to that, the lack of charging infrastructure could be another factor proving to be a deterrent to the mass adoption of Tesla Cybertruck albeit the latter reason is a more universal factor and not a Cybertruck specific.

As usual, Tesla has been tight-lipped about most specifications of the Cybertruck. But we know that there will be single-motor RWD, dual-motor AWD and tri-motor AWD configurations on offer to make it more accessible to a wider range of audiences. Being a gargantuan electric truck, there will be loads of cameras, radars and sensors to ensure safety and drivability in tight spaces. The power figures could be in the vicinity of 700 hp and the range could be around 612 km. In the most aggressive settings, 0-60 mph can be achieved in mere 2.9 secs. Let us see if Tesla is able to keep the timeline this time around.
