Two newly arrived Tesla Cybertruck bodies found at Texas Gigafactory
Before mass production began, what appeared to be a Tesla Cybertruck body or prototype was spotted at the Gigafactory in Texas. The Cybertruck is one of the most anticipated electric pickups ever.

Tesla is estimated to have a backlog of more than 1 million pre-orders for the electric pickup, meaning there are a lot of people watching the vehicle project and trying to track the progress of production.

The official production schedule is not entirely clear at the moment, CEO Elon Musk has mentioned "volume production in mid-2023", and there is also news that production may also start earlier in 2023.

We don't have many ways to keep track of the Cybertruck's production progress, but a few people regularly fly drones over the Gigafactory Texas, where the Cybertruck will be primarily produced. Now, Joe Tegtmeyer has spotted what appears to be two new Cybertruck bodies.

Tegtmeyer called them "prototypes" because it couldn't be definitively confirmed, but it's probably a Cybertruck body because its proportions are uniquely recognizable.

As pointed out by the drone pilot, it appears that the Cybertruck was sent to the factory, not made there. They are likely to be validation bodies.

Cybertruck prototypes, and the addition of these two vehicles could double the number of electric pickups in Tesla's fleet.

Over the past few years, Tesla has been investing heavily in casting and alloying technology to enable larger cast parts, which can greatly simplify manufacturing, when the company acquired several of the world's largest casting machines. These multimillion-dollar giant machines were developed by the company Idra.

Tesla's first Giga Press, installed at the Fremont factory, is already operational in 2020. This machine was the first of its kind at the time, with a gripping force of 5,600 to 6,200 tons.

Tesla has already started to replace 70 different parts of the vehicle with a single rear body part when producing the Model Y. Now, Idra has been assembling the new 9,000-ton Giga die-casting machine, which will produce the body of the Cybertruck.

The company recently completed the machine, and Tesla is taking deliveries in what is expected to be a major step toward production.
