Elon Musk shows off Cybertruck ‘production candidate’
Tesla's Cybertruck is very close to being ready for the streets, and Elon Musk wants us to know it's
The tesla CEO posted an image of himself in a Cybertruck on X/Twitter on Wednesday, from the company's Giga Texas factory in Austin. “Just drove the production candidate Cybertruck at Tesla Giga Texas,” he wrote.
The vehicle in the high-resolution picture looks, well, like a Cybertruck, possibly with a slightly more precise finish than we've previously seen in pictures.
In July, Tesla announced it started production of the Cybertruck, and earlier in April, the company said it would “probably” have a Cybertruck delivery event in the third quarter of the year. But Tesla still doesn't appear to be ready to start delivering the car, and the Cybertrucks that are currently being produced are in fact “release candidates.”
“While I think it is our best product ever, it is an extremely difficult product to build. We are in uncharted territory, because it is not like anything else,” he wrote.
