Since introduced the Cybertruck, the vehicle has received over one million reservations, with some estimates putting the total at three million. Tesla, on the other hand, has postponed the construction of the Cybertruck until 2023. Due to supplier leaks, the start of manufacturing has been pushed back to the end of 2023, with the first supplies not arriving until early 2024.
Elon Musk recently announced that the Cybertruck will be sold out until 2027. For those hoping to see the future truck on the road, this has been disappointing. However, there has been some good news about Cybertruck's manufacturing in the last few weeks. Musk has stated that the Cybertruck's body would be built on a new 9000-ton Giga Press that will be completed next week.
Inside, there were some noticeable alterations, such as 6 wheels on the front and 4 wheels on the back, a considerably broader rear body, more top lighting, and a new rack design to augment the vault. The white, rectangular, marble-looking dashboard of the Cybertruck prototype has been replaced with a more classic triangular shape and black material resembling that of most other Teslas in the new cabin.
A screen has been installed behind the steering wheel of the Cybertruck. This is a change from the initial prototype's Model 3 & Y-like interior design to the revised Model S & X interior design. The seats have also been redesigned to be less angular and more in line with Tesla's other vehicles.
The interior of the new Cybertruck is a substantial shift from the prototype's design. Other verified alterations include rear-wheel steering, handless doors, a bed-to-rear-seat opening, and a slew of minor tweaks. Musk has also announced that a new quad-motor Cybertruck model will be released.
With all of the advancements that have occurred since the Cybertruck's debut in 2019, Tesla's first truck is shaping up to be a once-in-a-lifetime product. This explains why Musk claims the Cybertruck will be Tesla's crowning achievement.
People have been considering a camping version of the Cybertruck and numerous companies have shown to be quicker by developing their own designs to accompany the car. Space Campers, a California-based firm, recently demonstrated a camper for the Cybertruck that was built as a "Swiss army knife."

FSD Future Outlook
Tesla is already working on an enhancement to its semi-autonomous driving initiative, as disclosed by Elon Musk himself, despite the lack of a precise timeframe for the OTA rollout. Tesla FSD Beta has earned a reputation for being one of the best in the world. Its continuous evolution has made it feasible to improve instant reaction and circulation in general.
Although the most recent update was just issued a few weeks ago, Elon Musk has already stated that Tesla is working on a more advanced version that will include several key new features as well as addressing present issues. The FSD Beta version 10.12 is already being distributed to early Tesla test-drivers.
Other improvements, such as better responsiveness on unmapped routes, reduced potential mistakes on left turns and also on ghost braking situations, and other new and interesting features are scheduled to be implemented with version 10.13 of the FSD, according to the business.
In this case, Musk essentially spoke out about upgrading the "summon" feature: Tesla electric vehicles are capable of answering to their owners' "calls," circulating without a driver, and driving to a location specified by the owner on their cell phone. That feature can fail based on many settings, which will be addressed in the next release of the FSD Beta package.
