A new video showcasing Tesla’s robots may have revealed the Cybertruck frame. As many are closely watching the development of the Tesla Cybertruck as it will likely be one of the most significant vehicles to launch this year, with over 1.5 million reservations and Tesla’s track record of building electric vehicles in volume, a sneak peek such as this one wasn’t about to fly over our heads.
Tesla Cybertruck Skeleton: Details
Tesla produced a video for Valentine’s Day that was a spoof of a dating video focused on the automaker’s robots. During the profile of the robot called Joey 2000, Tesla showed it lifting a large vehicle frame that doesn’t appear to match any vehicle that’s currently in production. However, according to electrek, the size and configuration could match that of the Tesla Cybertruck, and the background does appear to be Gigafactory Texas in Austin.
An image previously leaked from the factory shows the body of the Tesla Cybertruck, and it appears that the frame and the body are meant to be attached together. Additionally, it’s doubtful that Tesla would have shown Joey 2000 at work just for a joke. The video indicates that the Cybertruck production line is quite advanced, to the point that they have robots moving frames around.
Tesla aims to bring the Cybertruck into production this summer, though we shouldn’t expect a significant number of deliveries until 2024 when the automaker increases its production volume. That said, some Tesla fans hope the automaker is underpromising with the Cybertruck production program. While the glimpses of production are encouraging, there’s no clear indication that it will happen any faster than what Tesla has announced.
Just think about the delays with development, which they are still tackling the windshield issues. They still need to train what employees they are hiring for the production process, then hire more people and train them. It’s a time-consuming process, but production is finally in sight.
