Leaked images of the Tesla Gigafactory in Texas are getting people excited because it (hopefully) proves the long-awaited Cybertruck Delivery Event might be around the corner.
Is the wait finally over?
The images you see here were shared by drone pilot Joe Tegtmeyer.
Tegtmeyer had already shown us different Cybertruck versions in the past, including an air suspension model parked next to a Cybertruck with normal suspension.
However, this is bigger and arguably more important news.
Tegtmeyer’s latest pictures show a fleet of nine Cybertrucks.
They definitely appear to be delivery-ready.
16 October 2023 Giga Texas! 9 Cybertrucks in the outbound lot, but few Model Y's today. The temporary electrical switchyard seems to be in decommissioning, while the new End-of-Line (EOL) facility on the west side continues to grow! 1/2 pic.twitter.com/X6YoFpSpkb— Joe Tegtmeyer 🚀 🤠😎 (@JoeTegtmeyer) October 16, 2023
The downside is only one of the trucks parked near the Tesla Gigafactory is visible, with the other ones protected by a cover, so there’s not a lot we can deduce, spec-wise.
The only Cybertruck that’s not covered features the iconic stainless steel finish, black wheels and what appears to be a black cover for the truck bed.
We still don’t have a price for the Cybertruck, since Musk said the initial price tag of $39,900 no longer applies.
The truck market is pretty dynamic in the US, and the Cybertruck is expected to go up against the likes of Ford and Chevy.
Both the F-150 Lightning and the Chevy Silverado EV start at around $52,000.
For that reason, we can safely predict a $50,000-something price tag for the Cybertruck, too.
