140 Tesla Cybertrucks have been seen parked together at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Texas. The leading electric vehicle manufacturer seems to have scaled its production to potentially meet the ambitious target of 50,000 Cybertrucks per year.

The Cybertrucks were distributed across different sections of the facility: approximately 95 in the E testing and calibration lot, 15 parked at the southwest corner in a temporary staging area, and around 30 in the west outbound lot.

Additionally, some of these futuristic trucks were seen departing on transport trucks, presumably headed for delivery or further testing phases. Notably, several vehicles had what appeared to be Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) written on the driver-side windows, indicating their readiness for market release.

This surge in visible production comes after Tesla’s announcement in its Q4 2023 shareholder letter, where the company claimed that the Cybertruck production capacity at its Texas factory exceeded 125,000 units. This update raises questions about Tesla’s potential to hit the 400,000 sales mark annually for the Cybertruck.

The Tesla Cybertruck began pre-production models in July 2023 and entered serial production by November 2023. It has faced its share of challenges, though.

Production Challenges

From production delays initially slated for a 2021 release to the complexities of mass-producing such a uniquely designed vehicle, Tesla has navigated through what Elon Musk termed as manufacturing difficulties.

One of the critical bottlenecks for Tesla has been the production of 4680 battery cells, essential for powering the Cybertrucks.

With the Giga Texas factory’s current output only sufficient to support about 24,000 Cybertrucks annually, the sight of 140 Tesla Cybertrucks ready and waiting marks a significant production milestone. This achievement hints at a possible resolution to the “battery production hell” that Tesla has been grappling with.

As Tesla continues to push boundaries in electric vehicle production, the sighting of 140 Cybertrucks at the Texas Gigafactory signals a promising shift towards meeting the high demand for this innovative vehicle.
