Tesla owner leaks details of Cybertruck delivery event
Someone shared what looked like an invitation to a Cybertruck delivery event on the X and people went crazy.
Does this mean we finally have a long-awaited delivery date?

The short answer is, unfortunately, not yet.
But the call is 100 percent legitimate.
Tesla has begun sending out emails telling owners that they can redeem referral credits for an invitation to an “upcoming” Cybertruck delivery event in Austin, Texas.
We’re all familiar with Musk’s antics, so “coming” could mean anything from next week to next month or next year.
However, this is most of the information we’ve gotten about the delivery event in months.
What’s interesting is that this event is not free.
Tesla says you need 30,000 referral credits, the equivalent of three compound referrals, to be invited.
We’d like to assume that this only applies to fans and owners of other Tesla vehicles that aren’t Cybertruck, and we hope the invitation will be free for people who have already purchased the truck.
For those who aren’t familiar with Tesla’s referral system, owners get credits for referring people to make a Tesla purchase.
Among other things, you can use your credits to charge your car for free – which isn’t bad either.

Although the “Cybertruck Delivery Event” doesn’t have a date yet, Tesla is already organizing other Cybertruck events where attendees can admire the truck stationary.
But if we put that aside for a second, the fact of the matter is that the Cybertruck has become somewhat of an illusion.
What was supposed to be the first production model was revealed months ago, but Tesla is still working on tweaking the Cybertruck by adding air suspension and a new seat design.
The irony is that the Cybertruck was the world’s first (and then) only electric truck when it was unveiled in 2019.
However, the constant delays gave everyone a chance to catch up.
Ford has the F-150 Lightning, Rivian unveiled the R1T, and Chevy introduced the Silverado EV.
Then of course there’s the massive (and expensive) GMC Hummer EV.
