Tesla plans to make annually between 250,000 and 300,000 Cybertrucks.
The company will build its all-new futuristic-looking pickup at a new factory in Texas. This facility’s production capacity enables to assemble from 250,000 to 300,000 vehicles per year, and possibly more, according to Tesla’s CEO.
For comparison: Ford’s sales of F-Series pickups accounted 896,000 units last year; FCA sold above 633,000 Rams. So, the figures from Tesla do not seem impressive, when compared…
Nevertheless, the amount of pre-orders for the Cybertruck, which the company gathered, exceeds all expectations. Musk noted that they booked “well over half a million” $100 refundable deposits.
It’s a lot, basically…We stopped counting.
Tesla classifies its Cybertruck as close to a medium-duty pickup, on par with Ford F-250 Super Duty. For other markets, the automaker is going to offer a smaller and cooler international version.
