After facing a series of delays over the past two years, Tesla has announced the completion of its first Cybertruck at the company’s manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas. The long-awaited production milestone was shared by Tesla in a tweet on Saturday.

Initially unveiled by Tesla founder Elon Musk in 2019, the Cybertruck made headlines for its unique design and supposed “armor glass” windows, which unfortunately cracked during a live demonstration. Since then, the production timeline for the Cybertruck has been repeatedly pushed back, with Musk attributing the delays to component shortages.

During a shareholder meeting in May, Musk expressed his desire for Tesla to produce approximately 250,000 Cybertrucks annually, contingent upon demand. With the launch of the Cybertruck, Tesla aims to enter the highly profitable electric vehicle (EV) segment in the United States, competing directly with electric pickups from established automakers such as Ford Motor and Rivian Automotive. Although Ford and Rivian have already introduced their own electric truck models in limited quantities, Tesla’s entry into the market is expected to significantly intensify competition.

Tesla’s plan is to commence mass production of the Cybertruck by the end of 2023, marking a crucial step forward in their EV lineup and further solidifying the company’s position as a leading player in the electric vehicle industry.
