Is This the First Glimpse Of the Cybertruck Casting?

We have an image floating around of what appears to be a Cybertruck casting. This comes from Kim Java's latest video about Tesla having leaks hidden in plain sight.

Cybertruck Casting Seen Hanging

The Cybertruck is Tesla's up and coming pickup truck that will compete with the Ford F-150. The Cybertruck has had numerous delays, but it looks like it is finally going to go into production next year around June. It should ramp to volume production by the end of 2024.

There is an image floating around of a Cybertruck casting and there is speculation about whether this is an actual casting for the Cybertruck or not. If it is a casting for the Cybertruck, it looks like it's half of the total frame of the Cybertruck, perhaps a front casting. This image comes from Kim Java's latest video about Tesla having leaks in plain sight.

The other part of it would be the back part of it, of course, but this casting is huge and even it would represent a step improvement for Tesla in its manufacturing process of its vehicles. There have been reports of a 9,000 ton Giga Press being moved to Giga Texas in order to build the Cybertruck.

Cybertruck Next Year and Cost

There is not a definitive answer as to the source of this Cybertruck casting, but certainly, this looks like it could be part of the Tesla Cybertruck and the frame that will be used for it.

There is likely over 3 million reservation holders for the Cybertruck and in order for most of those reservation holders to take delivery of the Cybertruck, Tesla is going to have to find a way to make the cost of the Cybertruck make sense.

Tesla started off with a $40,000 cost for a single motor and then $80,000 for a tri-motor. Later, Elon Musk stated that the Cybertruck will have a quad motor option and 500 miles of range. Nobody knows what the cost is going to be, but most believe it will be higher than the original stated cost.

Using a single or two castings is a good start for this. Not having paint on it will be another big and important step. I think Tesla should offer a base truck that is just the frame, wheels, center screen, and interior, make that affordable, and then have a series of post apocalyptic options for those who want more.

We will continue to update this article as we find out more about this supposed Cybertruck casting. One thing is for certain - there is a lot of excitement building around the Cybertruck. According to Kim, this is a single-piece rear mega cast, which was shared with her.

Funny how you Tesla fanboys make up your own facts. 3 million pre orders? The largest number reported is 1.5 million and even that seems pretty shaky
