Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, made a recent visit to the Tesla Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, where he got down and dirty in the Cybertruck prototype.
During his visit to Austin, Musk said that he was just at the factory, driving the Cybertruck. The billionaire was said to have arrived at the factory where the Cybertruck will eventually be built. Musk then decided to take the long-awaited vehicle out for a spin on the dirt roads.
Videos of the event showed the brutalist truck drive over the site's dirt-covered grounds.
Referring to the Austin factory, Musk Tweeted, "I was just there, driving Cybertruck around the site where it will be built!" Musk took some time walking around the factory and talking to a crowd of workers that had gathered.
It is also reported that the sighting was accompanied by some more sobering news: the car company may hit some production snags later this year.
"Limited production of Model Y this year, high volume next year," Musk wrote. He also added that the same thing will happen in Berlin, the company's factory in Germany, currently under construction.
However, at this time, it's still unclear if the production slow-down will affect the Cybertruck as well, seeing that the vehicle was meant to start shipping later this year.
In January, Musk said that "we'll make a few deliveries of the Cybertruck in 2021, but volume production is set for next year."
