Toronto, Ontario — The Tesla Cybertruck is nearing its final form, at least before it enters production.
While addressing an inquiry from an institutional investor about the development of the Cybertruck during Tesla’s Q4 FY 2020 earnings call, CEO Elon Musk confirmed nearly all the work surrounding the all-electric pickup’s engineering has been completed, and the upcoming all-electric pickup’s design is already fixed.
“So we finished almost all of the Cybertruck engineering. So we’re no longer iterating at the design center level or design level. We’ve got the designs fixed,” he said.
Musk recently posted about the all-electric pickup’s door handles, which he noted would be flush to the steel of the vehicle, similar to other Tesla handle designs.
In the recent Q4 FY 2020 earnings call, Musk also said Tesla will soon acquire the equipment necessary to produce the all-electric pickup truck en masse, with deliveries potentially beginning by the end of this year.
“I think it’s going to be an incredible vehicle,” Musk said. “If we get lucky, we will be able to do a few deliveries by the end of this year. But I expect volume production to be in 2022.”
