Why Is Tesla Rising The Price For Cybertruck?
In a recent shareholders’ meeting, Tesla announced a few things that Tesla is focusing on. The most controversial announcement was the price hike for Cybertruck. Elon Musk addressed everyone by saying he hates giving a little bit of bad news. He announced the price hike and described the Cybertruck as a damn fine machine and one hell of a product. Creating hype is all we see in these recent times. Where is the Cybertruck? This is the real question.
Musk added that it would be in mass production by mid-2022 and released in 2023. This production was said to start in late 2021. Since then, it had been delayed over and over. The major reasons behind the delay in production and price hike are supply chain issues and the shortage of electric components. Musk even said that there are a lot more issues with Cybertruck. One of these issues is the impractical body design, creating a delay.
