Tesla plans to build 375,000 units of the Cybertruck per year

Tesla is apparently aiming for the production of 375,000 units per year for the Cybertruck. The US American electric car manufacturer announced in January that the Cybertruck would go into production at the plant in Texas in the course of 2023.

The information on the output of the Cybertruck production is provided by the portal Electrek, citing communications from Tesla to suppliers. The new information is also said to indicate that Tesla plans to produce the first examples of the Cybertruck at the end of August and to officially start series production at the beginning of October. As reported, the 4680 battery cells for the Tesla Cybertruck could initially be supplied by Panasonic and LG Energy Solution, as Tesla has not yet reached the energy density target with its own 4680 cells of the first generation.

However, the manufacturer has not yet shown a production version of the electric pickup. A final price has also not yet been named. Tesla presented the Cybertruck in November 2019 and has since postponed the start of production three times: First from late 2021 to late 2022, then to early 2023 and most recently to “early production” from mid-2023.

According to an earlier report by Reuters, battery cell logistics were the cause of these delays. Tesla houses its own production of 4680-format cells in Fremont, with facilities to be built later in Texas, California, Nevada and Berlin. At the end of December, the company said it achieved a production rate of 868,000 of these cells in Fremont within one week – enough for about 1,000 electric cars. The manufacturer is building the 4680 round cells into the Model Y, for example, which is being built in Giga Texas. In parallel to the model with the 4680-based structural battery pack, however, Model Y variants with conventional battery packs and 2170 cells continue to be built in Austin – as 4680 production is not sufficient to keep vehicle production busy.
