Tesla suspends Cybertruck orders in Europe and China

Tesla electric car maker has reportedly stopped taking Cybertruck orders on its websites in China and Europe. Tesla now only allows visitors to sign up for updates on retrieval.

While the Cybertruck has been delayed countless times, it seems that it is now impossible to order a copy in Europe and China Indeed, several customers had the unpleasant surprise to see that it was impossible to reserve or order a Cybertruck on the official Tesla website. Previously it was possible to make a reservation by paying a small deposit of 100 euros, but this button has been changed and now leads to a registration form for future updates related to the vehicles. Only American customers can still reserve a Cybertruck.

Tesla already has enough pre-orders for Cybertruck to fulfill

While production probably won’t start until 2023, Tesla already has a long list of pre-orders to fulfill, which may explain why it is now impossible to add your name to the queue. As a reminder, in August 2021, Tesla already had 1.2 million pre-orders for its Cybertruck. At the time of writing this article, this number would be closer to 1.5 million, but Tesla has not confirmed this data for several months. The American car manufacturer, therefore, has enough vehicles to produce for the next few years. According to information from The Electric Viking, the Tesla Cybertruck would be sold out until 2027.

If you could order a Tesla Cybertruck today, you’d probably be waiting way too long to see it in your garage. By stopping pre-orders, Tesla therefore probably wants to save new customers from waiting for the futuristic pickup for several years. As a memory, the Cybertruck is expected to be manufactured at Tesla’s new Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, but it is still under construction. Still, Tesla should start production well before the factory is finished, as was the case at the Gigafactory in Shanghai and Berlin.
