Tesla has been teasing its Cybertruck ever since the now-infamous prototype debuted in 2019. The automaker is notorious for overpromising, underdelivering or delaying projects. Cybertruck is a perfect example of this. However, after numerous delays, the automaker has finally started to make some quick progress over the past few months, as Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the long-awaited Cybertruck will be launched this year. Started production in September.
The Cybertruck was once again spotted testing in the snow during winter testing. The electric automaker tweeted an image of the car drifting in the snow as production neared. The company also confirmed that the car is undergoing winter testing. However, Tesla did not disclose where the photo was taken. But this image shows that electric vehicles are well under way.

Speaking of the Tesla Cybertruck prototype being tested in the snow, it has no visible special wheels or other body accessories. Like the recently spotted prototype, this one also has real production-ready parts like side mirrors and large stock wheel and tire options. Only the exterior can be seen from the images Tesla posted online.
Production of the angular, odd-looking electric pickup truck will begin this September, as revealed by Tesla CEO Elon Musk. He is confident the electric car will sell between 250,000 and 500,000 a year. He has said Tesla will produce as much as people want and can afford, suggesting the company will scale up production based on demand. Previously, Tesla had revealed that limited production would start in 2023, and the company would increase production starting in 2024.
