- 📅 Event Preparations: Tesla’s scheduled Cybertruck Delivery Event on November 30 prompted a random drawing for shareholder attendance, though invite details are yet to be confirmed.

Massive batches of Cybertruck castings have been spotted at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Texas in the past several days, showing the vehicle’s initial production ramp ahead of a delivery event this month.
Drone pilot Joe Tegtmeyer spotted a huge group of the Cybertruck castings at Giga Texas on Monday, noting that a previous batch from Friday was already gone. The batch on Friday looked like the largest group of Cybertruck castings seen yet at the Austin, Texas factory with over 100 units.
Monday’s batch appears a little smaller, though it’s similar in comparison to a group of Cybertruck castings seen early last month. Additionally, the disappearance of the massive batch from Friday shows that Tesla is gearing up Cybertruck production ahead of the delivery event scheduled for this month.
Tegtmeyer also spotted as many as 13 production Cybertrucks around the factory, which he expects were used for photo ops over the weekend.
As usual, Tegtmeyer plans to share a full-length video of his Monday drone flight at Giga Texas on his YouTube channel, and this story will be updated to include it upon release.
The sighting comes ahead of Tesla’s Cybertruck Delivery Event on November 30, for which the automaker held a random drawing for shareholders to win a chance to attend in person. Tesla’s Investor Relations Head Martin Viecha said last week that the list of attendees for the event had been finalized, adding that invites would be sent to winners “soon(ish).”
At the time of writing, it’s unclear if anyone has received an invite to the Giga Texas event.
It also comes after the Cybertruck was seen at the Electrify Expo 2023 in Austin over the weekend. News also surfaced this weekend that Cybertruck buyers will be subject to a “no resale” policy within a year of purchase, or Tesla may sue them for $50,000.
