Wrapped Tesla Cybertruck bodies have been spotted at Giga Texas. This observation confirms the statement of the company management that the beta phase of production is approaching.
Although the production of Cybertruck hasn't even started yet, it is already an iconic car. According to unofficial data, pre-orders for the electric pickup truck already exceed one million, which is incredibly huge. Given the popularity of Cybertruck, it's no surprise that the community is keeping a close eye on any updates related to it. So far, we have only seen a few prototypes, presumably two, although the exact number is unknown. Now, for the first time since its presentation, bodies of Cybertruck have been spotted.
Austin Tesla Club/Twitter shared photos from Giga Texas. The photos were taken by Jeff Roberts/Twitter, who is a constant observer of the progress of the construction of Tesla's new factory in the United States. While flying a drone around the construction site, Jeff noticed three objects that had interesting shapes and was wrapped in green film. After a detailed examination of the photo, it became clear that these were the bodies of Cybertruck.
BREAKING Cybertruck news!! At Giga Texas these wrapped Cybertruck bodies! Spotted by @peterdog15 today and possibly by @Terafactorytx latest flyby. We are so stoked to see these here in Texas!! @elonmusk @omead pic.twitter.com/TrUmanEWEa— Austin Tesla Club (@AustinTeslaClub) July 29, 2021
The arrival of Cybertruck bodies at Giga Texas is even more interesting given what Vice President of Vehicle Engineering at Tesla, Lars Moravy, said during the Q2 2021 Earnings Call. He said that pickup truck production is moving into beta phases soon. "We are moving into the beta phases of Cybertruck later this year, and we will be looking to ramp that in production and take it to Texas after Model Y is up and going," said Moravy. At the moment, it is too early to say that Tesla can start production at Giga Texas anytime soon because the representatives of the company have made it clear that the launch of production of Model Y is the highest priority. However, these samples can be used later this year to calibrate production equipment.
