It’s been 4 years of waiting but, Tesla finally appears to be ready to deliver the 1st Cbyertrucks to customers in the event to be held on November 30 at Giga Texas.
There are currently a few nuggets of information we know regarding what Tesla is planning for the November 30 event.
According to Elon Musk, Tesla will be showing 3 demonstration videos that highlight the Cybertruck’s various aspects at the delivery event.
The first video according to Musk will demonstrate the strength of the Cybertruck’s 30X cold-rolled stainless steel. During the demonstration, Musk says Tesla will show the vehicle being shot by a Tommy gun, a 9mm handgun, and a shotgun.
Musk has not revealed what the two other demonstration videos will be, however, a drone flyover of Tesla’s Texas facility last week has revealed that Tesla is filming a new video comparing the Cybertruck with a Porsche 911 and Ford F-150.
The entire content of the two videos has not been shared yet but, we expect Tesla to hold a tug-of-war between the Cybertruck and a Ford F-150 Lightning and, a drag race between the Cybertruck and the Porsche 911 showing the all-electric truck is quicker in a quarter mile race than a Porsche.
Other things we suspect Tesla will show off at the event include the 7 new Model 3 & Y colors that the EV maker introduced last month. A truckload of Tesla Model 3 & Y’s with these new colors was spotted heading into Giga Texas.
Until now, this is all the information we’ve so far about Tesla’s Cybertruck delivery event. However, today, thanks to Tesla's product design director, Javier Verdura, we have a bit more color about what the EV maker is planning for the November 30 date.

Verdura during a keynote speech in Monterrey, Mexico reiterated that the Cybertruck delivery event will take place on November 30 as scheduled and added that “we are going to deliver the first 10 Cybertrucks.”
Javier’s comments are certainly interesting and suggest that, unlike other Tesla delivery events, the EV maker will be handing over the Cybertrucks to outside customers rather than to Tesla employees.
This is certainly exciting however, the fact that Tesla will only be delivering 10 Cybertrucks at the event is surprising. From drone flyovers of Tesla’s Texas factory, we’ve confirmation that thus far the EV maker has already produced hundreds of Cybertrucks.
There were also previous leaks that suggest that Tesla is preparing for a 1st of its kind delivery event where hundreds of Cybertrucks are handed over to customers from several service centers across the country.
Verdura’s comments do not directly contradict these leaks. The EV maker can still deliver 10 Cybertrucks at the event and the rest of the Cybertrucks can head to customers from service centers across the country.
Whatever the case, it’s definitely exciting to see the Cybertruck delivery event taking shape. Currently, this is all the information we’ve regarding the November 30 event, however, we’ll be sure to keep you posted when we get further information.
