He upheld that timeline during Tesla's fourth-quarter earnings call in January, telling investors to expect a "few deliveries of the Cybertruck toward the end of this year," but adding he expected "volume production to be in 2022."

The electric pickup was again addressed during July's second-quarter earnings call, but the signs that production would be delayed were there.

Tesla's vice president of vehicle engineering, Lars Moravy, said the vehicle was "at a stage where we finished basic engineering of the architecture" and the company would be "moving into the beta phases of Cybertruck later this year."
