Electric vehicle giant Tesla has initiated the next phase of its Cybertruck rollout in the United States by sending out the first batch of “Prepare for Delivery” emails to customers. Typically a precursor to imminent vehicle delivery, the timing of these deliveries by year-end remains uncertain.
The Cybertruck delivery event took place at Giga Texas on November 30, where CEO Elon Musk personally handed over the first 10 Cybertrucks to customers. Unexpectedly, Tesla began sending out a substantial number of emails to customers in California and Texas, urging them to convert their reservations into orders for the Foundation Series Cybertruck, with prices reaching as high as $120,000, depending on configuration.
Numerous customers, who had waited over four years for the Cybertruck, promptly finalized their orders. In response, Tesla swiftly began instructing them to prepare for delivery. A member of the CybertruckOwnersClub forum, Cirrus SR22, reported receiving the “Prepare for Delivery” email after placing an order for a Cybertruck All-Wheel Drive (AWD) on Saturday and completing all necessary steps in the mobile app.

While the issuance of these emails indicates that a Cybertruck has been allocated to the respective customers, the absence of a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and a scheduled delivery date in the mobile app remains noteworthy. Nevertheless, considering Tesla's historical timeline from notification to delivery, there is a likelihood that some deliveries may transpire before the close of the year.
Tesla's earlier communications highlighted that the initial Cybertruck deliveries would take place in California and Texas this year, with plans to expand to other states in 2024. The ongoing developments mark a crucial step in the broader rollout of Tesla's highly anticipated all-electric Cybertruck in the US market.
