At the time of the announcement, Tesla said that Cybertruck would be 'on the market by the end of 2021', but it was reported that the release may be delayed as the deadline approaches.

Although Tesla's Cybertruck wasn't considered the best, it's clear that this delay in production will further diminish its expectations. However, not only Tesla but also other electric pickup truck manufacturers such as Rivian and Lordstown have problems, and it is reported that the production period has been postponed.

As of August 2021, the number of Tesla Cybertruck reservations has exceeded 1.2 million.
