Tesla continues to develop its plans to bring Cybertruck to market. After opening the opportunity to order an electric pickup truck in China last year, the company has now applied to register the Cybertruck trademark in the country.
EV enthusiast and Tesla owner @ray4tesla/Twitter reported that on May 18, 2021, the Californian manufacturer applied to register the Cybertruck trademark in China. Submitting an application means that Tesla is indeed planning to sell the pickup truck in the country. Since the only known factory that will produce Cybertruck is located in the United States, this means that the steel beast will be imported from there. However, this does not mean that the company does not intend to start production at Giga Shanghai. If demand in China is very high, then it will be wise for Tesla to consider producing it domestically.
The Chinese government has launched a policy of easing the rules regarding pickup trucks. Previously, their entry to city roads was banned due to their high levels of pollution. However, in 2020, the rules began to be revised. In addition, the Cybertruck is an all-electric pickup truck and may be subject to different regulations, which means it will potentially be in extremely high demand among those interested in buying a pickup truck.
