Rivian will have an even bigger production head start over the Cybertruck!

Elon Musk warned that Tesla has to be "lucky" in order to deliver Cybertrucks this year.

In a conference call following the release of Tesla’s Q4 2020 earnings, Musk said volume production will begin in 2022.

"If we get lucky, we’ll be able to do a few deliveries toward the end of this year, but I expect volume productions to begin in 2022."

"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. We will soon order the equipment necessary to make the Cybertruck work. We’re actually going to be using even bigger Tesla machines for the rear body of Cybertruck because we’ve got, obviously, it’s a bigger vehicle and you’ve got a long truck bed. So we’ll be using an 8,000-ton casting press for the rear body casting as opposed to 6,000-ton for Model Y."
