Significant progress is evident in Tesla's Cybertruck production ramp, with recent updates indicating a notable milestone at Giga Texas. According to a recent social media post by Tesla's Cybertruck account on X, the company successfully manufactured enough 4680 battery cells in one week to power 1,000 Cybertrucks.

This achievement was met with appreciation from the electric vehicle community, signaling positive momentum for the Cybertruck's production timeline. While Tesla has previously stated that the Cybertruck's production is not solely reliant on the 4680 battery cell output, the use of these next-generation batteries remains a key factor in its manufacturing process.

Observers like The Limiting Factor, specializing in monitoring Tesla's battery endeavors, highlighted that Giga Texas' 4680 cell production now operates at a 6.2 GWh per year rate, marking a 24% improvement from estimates made in October 2023. This development raises anticipation for potential insights into Giga Texas' battery production during Tesla's Q1 2024 earnings call, with expectations for further enhancements in 4680 cell output moving forward.

Considering this progress, it's plausible that approximately 50,000 Cybertrucks could be produced and potentially delivered to customers within the next 12 months. Elon Musk's previous mention of targeting 200,000 Cybertrucks per year, with a potential increase to 250,000 units by 2025, aligns with Tesla's current strides in Cybertruck production facilitated by Giga Texas' 4680 cell milestone.
