Tesla’s grip loose in the truck market
Now the truck will be given upgrades in features to compete with the competition. After the announcement in 2019, production should have stopped in 2021. Now, it is now going to happen somewhere in early 2023. According to reports, Tesla will now produce only a limited number of Cybertrucks in the first quarter of 2023. Tesla has a strong presence in the SUV and sedan segment, but it has a lax hold in the truck market. Ford and Rivian Automotive highly dominate the truck market in the United States which is a very popular segment in the US. Cybertruck is essential for Tesla to make its presence felt in the segment.
