To all Tesla Roadster fans had to wait a bit longer for the car to be released. Tesla CEO and founder Elon Musk says the car has been added to the list of delayed Tesla vehicles due to global chip shortage.
“2021 has been the year of super crazy supply chain shortages, so it wouldn’t matter if we had 17 new products, as none would ship,” Musk said in a tweet.
Elon adds the Roadster should ship in 2023, “assuming 2022 is not mega drama.”
According to TechCrunch, Tesla first announced its next-generation Roadster in 2017. Back then, the company expected to debut the car sometime last year.
The publication further reports, 2020 came and went without Tesla sharing much information on the supercar. Then, at the start of the year, Musk said production on the Roadster would start in 2022. Whether the car will make its new date is a big if.
