Tesla Cybertruck, the first XXL Superchargers arrive

Tesla Cybertruck, the first XXL Superchargers arrive

Tesla Cybertruck

It has been several years since Elon Musk took the stage and stoned the shatterproof glass of the Tesla Cybertruck, but to date we have not yet had the opportunity to see a Cybertruck on our roads - and not even on American ones; despite all these negative aspects, however, Tesla continues to work head-on on the Cybertruck project and the new Supercharger charging stations that will soon see the light are also shown.

One of these is already under construction, and yes located in Santa Monica, California: in the past Elon Musk had talked specifically about this charging station, which should have been equipped with a drive-in and an American-style diner in order to make the stop more pleasant for those who have to wait for their car to recharge. None of this, the Santa Monica station will be a normal parking lot equipped with 36 Tesla Supercharger V3 charging stations, but a particularly interesting detail has not escaped the attentive eyes of those who went to peek at the works: some of the charging points they have a parking area obviously larger than the others - the difference is 90cm in width, going from 2.7 to 3.6 meters.

Without any doubt the first candidate is the Tesla Cybertruck, a colossal pick-up almost 6 meters long and 2 meters wide (at least in its prototype version), expected on the market in 2023.

What about Elon Musk's dream of a 1950s-style charging station? It is certainly not forgotten, Tesla's CEO has simply changed his focus, and is aiming to build this interesting charging hub in a new location in the Hollywood area. To deceive the wait at the Santa Monica charging station, you can buy a snack from the automatic machines present, which will also accept payments in Dogecoin.

Is Tesla keeping people waiting for Cybertruck, compact car, Semi for a robot?

Tesla CEO Elon Musk seems to be straying from the goal of electrifying mobility.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

While people are waiting for a Tesla Cybertruck, Semi and a cheaper compact electric car, Elon Musk seems to be prioritizing on a robot, or famously the Tesla Humanoid robot. This comes at a time when the US-based electric carmaker has registered 87 per cent growth in delivery in 2021 and the company's earnings per share and revenue both beat analysts' estimates by more than six per cent.

The automaker also claimed that it achieved the highest quarterly operating margin among all OEMs. In short, Tesla has shown that electric cars can be much more profitable compared to their internal combustion engine-powered counterparts.

However, despite witnessing the success, Tesla is delaying the launch of its much-awaited electric pickup truck Cybertruck time and again, that too when Ford, General Motors and others are working hurriedly on their respective electric pickup trucks. Tesla has already said that the launch of its Cybertruck and Semi will be delayed until next year. This is likely to drag the EV maker's prospects in the near term.

What's more surprising is that Tesla CEO Elon Musk seems to be straying from his goal of electrifying mobility. When the EV maker should be bringing in new products to the market, Musk is focusing more on Optimus humanoid robot that has nothing to do with mobility. He even said that the company has too many projects to work on when asked about the future of a compact electric car that is supposed to be positioned below Model 3 and act as the cheapest Tesla car.

The automaker is also focusing on the Full Self-Driving (FSD) technology that will be one notch above the current semi-autonomous driving assist software, popularly known as Autopilot. Tesla has been already working on this project and claims to be achieving the successful implementation of this software by the end of this year.
