According to the latest news, Tesla’s Cybertruck will probably not be released this year. A Reuters article says the automaker has postponed initial production of its SUV to early 2023.
Reportedly, the electric vehicle’s production schedule, along with pricing and model information, has also been removed from the company’s website. If previously, it was indicated on the order page of the site: ʺ You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in 2022 ʺ, now we can only read: ʺ You will be able to complete your setup as production nears ʺ.
Since the company does not have a public relations department, only its CEO, Elon Musk, can provide more information on the subject.
What is the cause of the delay?
According to a Reuters source, the delay in production of the Cybertruck is due to changes in its “features and functions”. Tesla would like its futuristic SUV to better compete with other electric SUVs like the R1T that Rivian launched recently, and Ford’s upcoming F-150 Lightning.
As a reminder, production of the Cybertruck was originally scheduled to start in 2021, but was postponed until late 2022. Now it will have to wait until 2023.
For the moment, Tesla has not yet provided any explanation regarding the delay in the production of the Cybertruck. Elon Musk hasn’t commented on the matter lately. His last tweet about the Cybertruck dates back to December 2021 when he only replied to someone who had seen the vehicle on Tesla’s Fremont test track. He called the vehicle ‘CGI IRL’, which stands for ‘computer-generated imagery in real life’.
According to Reuters, production of the Cybertruck will initially be limited during the first quarter of 2023 and will increase later in the year.
In any case, the company’s earnings conference scheduled for January 26 will perhaps tell us more about the Cybertruck’s production schedule.
Honda showed its first electric crossover Prologue. But it will only be released in 2024.
Honda, like many other Japanese brands, is far behind its European competitors when it comes to electrifying their cars. The company already has a Honda e, and now the manufacturer has unveiled its first electric crossover, the Prologue. True, the car will enter the market only in 2024.
Whatever it was, so far we have only one official image. The crossover on it is not very similar to the current Honda models. The source says that Prologue is a joint development of the Japanese giant and GM, but no details yet. It is likely that the Prologue and some General Motors electric cars will have a common platform.
Honda plans to introduce 30 new electric vehicle models by 2030 and expects sales of 2 million units. After launching the Prologue in 2024, Honda plans to begin production of new electric vehicles based on its e:Architecture architecture in 2026, and in 2027 it will have affordable electric vehicles also co-developed with GM.
“I will vote Republican.” Musk lashes out at Democrats over Tesla’s exclusion from S&P 500 ESG index
Tesla was excluded from the S&P 500 ESG at the beginning of the month, but most people only knew about it now that Elon Musk decided to speak out about it.
ExxonMobil ranks in the top 10 in the world in the S&P 500 ESG Index, while Tesla didn’t make it! ESG is a scam. It was used as a weapon by fake social justice fighters.
The fact is that the S&P 500 ESG is an index that takes into account the environmental and social performance of companies. And Musk was obviously hurt that the huge oil company ExxonMobil was on the list, and Tesla was decided to be excluded. And there are even official reasons for the exclusion: Tesla has no strategy to reduce carbon emissions, no code of business conduct, and the company has also been accused of racism and poor working conditions.
But Musk did not stop at one statement.
I’ve voted Democrats in the past because they were (mostly) the goodness party. But they have become a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now watch their dirty campaign against me unfold
This is a much more serious statement, since many of Musk’s supporters are his supporters precisely because of his political views. Immediately, Musk made it clear that he changed them. This has already cost Tesla about $40 billion in capitalization, as the company’s shares fell immediately after the publication of its head.
