Musk was asked about Tesla’s short-term goals during a ceremony for the commencement of Model Y shipments at Gigafactory Berlin.

Tesla’s focus this year will be on ramping up manufacturing of existing car programmes, particularly the Model Y and Model 3, although Musk did make a rare mention of the Cybertruck.

As confirmed by him, Tesla plans to finish the Cybertruck’s development this year, with manufacturing beginning in 2023.

Musk was cited as saying that they wanted to finish the engineering of the Cybertruck this year and be ready for production in the year to come. When Tesla first introduced the Cybertruck in 2019, the electric pickup truck was expected to hit the market by the end of 2021.

As the deadline drew nearer, the company revealed that production would be delayed until 2022.

With the focus obviously on getting the Model Y into production at the facility, and that also delayed, the Cybertruck manufacturing timeline appeared to be slipping, according to the report.
