Despite being delayed for so long, the Cybertruck hasn’t lost its charm. Teslarati reports that there have been more than 1.9 million reservations for the EV to date, meaning Cybertruck buyers will have a waiting period of more than five years.

One of the most anticipated electric vehicles, the Tesla Cybertruck, entered production earlier this month, two years after the original production schedule.

Speaking of the Cybertruck, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that the demand for the electric pickup is so great that it simply doesn’t exist in sight. With more than 1.9 million pre-orders for the EV, and Tesla planning to roll out 375,000 Cybertrucks a year at peak capacity, it will technically take about five years for new orders for the EV to arrive. Having said that, a large percentage of those who book may not go ahead, especially since they booked the vehicle for as little as $100.

The Tesla Cybertruck is being built at the Giga, Texas plant. Although when the proposed production facility is up and running within a few years, the EV maker could produce at the Gigafactory in Mexico. This will help the automaker speed up the production of the Cybertruck. Tesla has revealed that it will increase the pace of pickup truck production in 2024.

Initially, Tesla planned to sell the Cybertruck only in the North American market to challenge the Ford F150 Lightning and some other electric pickup trucks. However, it will be interesting to see if the Cybertruck is also sold in other markets. The truck is also currently available for pre-order in Tesla’s European and Asian markets. However, selling such a large, heavy vehicle in overseas markets could pose a serious challenge to Tesla, as its weight would be classified as a commercial or semi-truck in several markets.
