Tesla’s Giga Texas facility is buzzing with activity as the production lines continue to roll out more Cybertrucks. A recent sighting has confirmed the automaker’s dedication to preparing units for production.

Following the successful completion of the first Cybertruck unit on the production lines at Gigafactory Texas a few weeks ago, Tesla is forging ahead with determination, aiming to achieve initial deliveries as planned by the end of the year. The ongoing progress indicates the company’s commitment to meeting the high demand for the revolutionary electric pickup truck.

Perhaps the newest Cybertruck unit built by Tesla was spotted on a line at Giga Texas and was shared to a Facebook group (via Greggertruck):

We only get a brief look at the pickup, apparently being surveilled by numerous onlookers as the Cybertruck is evidently a wow factor, even for those who see it on a daily basis as they work toward initial mass production. The car is still going through its validation and testing phases, according to Tesla, but the automaker is more than ready to get the first units to customers after a nearly four-year wait.

The Cybertruck is a different animal in the realm of pickups, and its massive design, which is made up of new materials and new technology, is something that even a manufacturing expert like Tesla is having to work through with the initial kinks.

Musk said during the recent Q2 2023 Earnings Call:

“I do want to emphasize that the Cybertruck has a lot of new technology in it, like a lot. It doesn’t look like — it doesn’t look like any other vehicle because it is not like any other vehicle. So — and the production ramp will move as fast as the slowest and least likely elements of the entire supply chain and internal production.”

He also highlighted the difference between the Cybertruck and past vehicles:

“But first order approximation, there’s like 10,000 unique parts and processes in the Cybertruck. And if any one of — it will go as fast as the least lucky, least well-executed element of the 10,000.”

It is going to take some time for Tesla to get grips on Cybertruck production, especially by Musk’s estimate. That seems to be why sightings of any unit on a production line have so much hype behind them.
