Tesla will stop taking reservations for its Cybertruck pickup truck outside North America, in the future. This description appears on their official website.
Tesla says it will only accept reservations for Cybertruck purchases in the United States, Canada and Mexico. But Tesla did not explain in detail why they stopped this reservation.
Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk has said that Tesla will start production of the Cybertruck next year at its Austin, Texas plant.
“We have more reservations for the first Cybertruck than we can possibly fill in the three years following the start of production,” Musk said last week at the FT Future of the Car 2022 conference.
He also said Tesla could stop taking reservation as demand for some of its vehicles exceeds production “to a ridiculous degree”.
Tesla launched the Cybertruck in 2019. Previously, Tesla had aimed to start mass production later this year, but has postponed those plans to the first quarter of 2023.
Cybertruck itself is claimed to be a technologically advanced pickup, with a slightly unique but futuristic shape. Massive promotion of this pickup has made it attract many potential buyers, so Tesla was flooded with enthusiasts.
Possibly because they were worried that they would be overwhelmed with reservations, they temporarily stopped reservations outside North America.
