Actions speak louder than words and it seems like some very important action is taking place Tesla. New photos and videos show off the 9,000-ton Giga Press and a taillight we’ve never seen before. Both indicate that the world’s most controversial pickup could soon be in the hands of reservation owners.
Following Cybertruck’s initial announcement in 2019, Elon Musk in August he said he would production will begin in mid-2023. During that call, Musk confirmed the steps ahead, saying that “the installation of production equipment, tooling and all that will start in the next couple of months.” Now we can see the proof in several images posted online.
October 24 of this year one Twitter user is freed which he called “leaked photos of the new Cybertruck at Giga Texas!” The images show a fully covered Cybertruck-shaped object on a pallet moving around the factory. Another post on the 25th shows the Giga Press packed and “ready to go!” as IDRA, its manufacturer, says.
BREAKING: Tesla manufacturer Giga Press IDRA just posted this photo on LinkedIn with the caption, “Packed up and ready to go!” and with the hashtag “#9000t“

There’s no telling when Giga Press will launch in Texas, but that day is clearly closer than ever. Additionally, the October 22 post shows the Cybertruck with a taillight design we haven’t seen before. The single thin streak of light that existed before has disappeared and is now broken into several sections. Just below each edge is also a secondary light unit.
We also get a good look at the reverse lights, which are located just above the rear bumper. We can’t confirm if this will be the final yet production layout, it looks more refined than previous iterations. In addition to all this, Teslarati reports that a battery pack for the Cybertruck will soon go into production in Fremont.
The electric car maker is currently in the process of finalizing the assembly line to create these packages. Tesla’s CEO made a lot of promises about the Cybertruck. Everything seems to point to his mid-2023 production forecast coming true.
