Add the Roadster to the list of deferred Tesla vehicles. On Wednesday, CEO Elon Musk said the exhibition EV wouldn’t make its recently reported 2022 shipment date.
“2021 has been the year of super crazy supply chain shortages, so it wouldn’t matter if we had 17 new products, as none would ship,” he said in a tweet spotted by Roadshow. The executive added the Roadster should ship in 2023, “assuming 2022 is not mega drama.”
Tesla initially reported its next-generation Roadster in 2017. In those days, the organization expected to make a big appearance the vehicle at some point last year. 2020 traveled every which way without Tesla sharing a lot of data on the supercar.
Then, at that point, toward the beginning of the year, Musk said creation on the Roadster would begin in 2022. Regardless of whether the vehicle will make its new date is a major if.
The worldwide chip deficiency that postponed the Tesla Semi is relied upon to proceed until 2023, and Musk’s tweet alludes to the chance of further deferrals.
