As previously mentioned, equipment installation for Cybertruck production at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Texas continued in Q1 and “remains on track” to begin production later this year. Tesla also announced a transition recently to “48 Volt architecture for vehicle electronics (starting with Cybertruck)” in its report along with “higher penetration of in-house designed controllers, cheaper, more scalable drive units and further innovations in the manufacturing process.”

For those curious about other vehicles Tesla is planning to produce, it not only lists the Cybertruck status as “tooling” but also vehicles like the Tesla Semi as being in “pilot production” at the company’s Nevada factory with the Roadster, Robotaxi, and others in development with their production location yet to be determined.

All in all, it’s reassuring to hear about the progress being made on Tesla vehicles like the Cybertruck.
