Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims to have walked the entire Cybertruck production line at the Texas Gigafactory for hours, just before production of the electric pickup truck is scheduled to begin at the plant in a few months. The Tesla CEO wrote on his Twitter profile. He also claimed that the Cybertruck would be awesome.
This isn’t the first time Elon Musk has hinted that the Cybertruck will be an exciting electric vehicle when it launches. He has promised exciting facts about the Tesla Cybertruck since its debut in 2019. “Walk the entire Cybertruck line at Giga Texas for a few hours earlier today – awesome!” Musk wrote in his latest tweet.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has previously claimed that the Cybertruck will offer better utility than a truck and promise better performance than a sports car. The Tesla Cybertruck debuted in November 2019, promising a starting price of $39,900 for the entry-level single-motor model. However, EVs are unlikely to carry the same price tag due to significantly higher production and raw material costs. The Cybertruck will be available in a three-motor variant, offering a range of more than 800 kilometers on a single charge.
The long-awaited Cybertruck is expected to launch by the end of this year. Tesla is increasingly testing prototypes of the electric car in California ahead of the Cybertruck, which is scheduled to start production in a few months. Meanwhile, Tesla released a video of what appears to be a Cybertruck EV undergoing a crash test. However, the video does not show the results of the crash tests. Instead, the video repeatedly cut out just as the Cybertruck was about to hit the test wall. While the video itself is a bit confusing as it doesn’t show any conclusions, the fact that Tesla is crash testing the Cybertruck suggests it’s in the final stages of development before mass production begins.
