Tesla confirmed that it has extended production of the Cybertruck to 2022. The brand revealed the EV in 2019 and announced that it would be available for sale in the market by the end of this year.

America's electric vehicle maker Tesla is in a discussion about its Cybertruck these days. This time around, a prototype of the vehicle has been spotted without any door handles. Which has already been mentioned by Tesla CEO Elon Musk earlier. Musk had previously reported that Cybertruck's doors would open automatically as soon as a user approached the electric vehicle.

There could be several reasons why Tesla did not provide door handles on the Cybertruck. If media reports are to be believed, they can also be adapted to give a clean look to the EV. The report also states that automatic opening doors are nothing new for Tesla as its Model X already sports this feature. However, the Model X suggests that Elon Musk may not want door handles in the production version of the Tesla Cybertruck.

In August, Tesla confirmed that it had extended production of the Cybertruck to 2022. The brand revealed the EV in 2019 and announced that it would be available for sale in the market by the end of this year. Delays have been confirmed for all three variants of Cybertruck. Several reasons have been given for this delay. Elon Musk had reported that the company would face some challenges to bring the electric pickup truck into production as features such as the EV's steel exoskeleton body may require a new manufacturing process. Tesla also said that two high-end variants of the electric pickup truck, the Dual Motor, and Tri-Motor, will come first.

For information, let us tell you that the automaker is currently racing to bring the first electric pickup truck to the US market, where EV maker Rivian has increased the production of its R1T electric pickup truck from July to September. At the same time, General Motors aims to bring the Hummer EV to the market by the end of the year.
