Nov 29 (Reuters) - Tesla Inc Chief Elon Musk on
Monday pointed to the challenges stemming from supply chain
problems on Cybertruck's production, even though the company has
so far avoided a major hit from the crisis that has plagued the
global auto industry.
"Oh man, this year has been such a supply chain nightmare &
it's not over!" Musk said in a tweet https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1465423422238994436
on Monday, in response to a Twitter users' request on a
"I will provide an updated product roadmap on next earnings
call," he added.
Musk said during Tesla's earnings call in July that he would
not necessarily be present at such future events, unless he had
something really important to say, indicating that he may have
an update on Cybertruck and the company's other products.
Tesla unveiled the futuristic electric pick-up truck in 2019
that is made of stainless steel used in rockets. Musk has touted
receiving several hundred thousand orders for the Cybertruck
when preorders were opened.
At a shareholder meeting in October, Musk said Cybertruck
production will begin next year and reach volume production in
Tesla shares closed up 5% at $1136.99 on Monday.
