Tesla will no longer accept cybertruck orders from Europe or China, as demand for cars far exceeds production for the foreseeable future.
When Cybertrack was unveiled, 250,000 reservations were made in the first week. Tesla stores receive hundreds of reservations each week, and car demand never waned as the number rose to 650,000 in June 2020.
According to Electrek, in May 2021, the Cybertrack Forum released a crowded resource reservation tally that showed more than one million reservations for electric pickups, and at the time of writing that number was close to 1.5 million.
For example, the California brand has enough vehicles to build for the first three years of production, and CEO Elon Musk says the company will stop taking orders from Europe and China. The cybertrack will be built at Tesla’s new Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, and reservations will be open to North American buyers.

The CyberTrack was unveiled in 2019, but due to multiple delays, production of the truck has resumed in 2023. European customers usually pick up their vehicles much later than North American buyers, as the home country usually gets the first delivery.
Also, regulatory issues with Cybertruck’s design will push delivery dates for European customers. Musk previously said that a smaller version of the truck with a slightly different design could be made for that market.
Tesla has made a lot of changes to the Cybertrac landing page on its website, first showing the arrival date, but now showing nothing. In addition, both specification and price were removed from the site last year.
