Somebody shared what looks like a Cybertruck delivery event invite on X and people are going crazy.
Does that mean we finally have a date for the long-awaited delivery?
The short answer is, unfortunately, not yet.
But the invite is 100 percent legit.
Tesla began sending out emails, telling owners they can redeem referral credits for an invitation to the ‘upcoming’ Cybertruck Delivery Event in Austin, Texas.
We’re all familiar with Musk’s antics, so ‘upcoming’ could mean anything from next week to next month or next year.
Still, it’s the most information we’ve had about the delivery event in months.
What’s interesting is this event is not free.
Tesla says you need 30,000 referral credits, equivalent to three vehicle referrals, to get invited.
We’d like to assume this only applies to fans and owners of other Teslas that aren’t the Cybertruck, and hopefully the invite is free of charge for people who actually did buy the truck.
For those unfamiliar with Tesla’s referral scheme, owners earn credits in exchange for referring people to make a purchase from Tesla.
Among other things, you can use your credits to charge your car for free – so that’s not bad either.
Even though the ‘Cybertruck Delivery Event’ doesn’t have a date yet, Tesla is already doing other Cybertruck events where attendees can admire the truck while it’s stationary.
But putting that aside for a second, the fact of the matter is the Cybertruck is becoming somewhat of a chimaera.
The irony is the Cybertruck was the first and (then) only EV truck in the world when it was unveiled back in 2019.
However, constant delays gave everyone else a chance to catch up.
Ford has the F-150 Lightning, Rivian unveiled the R1T and Chevy introduced the Silverado EV.
And then of course there’s the massive(ly expensive) GMC Hummer EV.
