On the day that Pacific Gas & Electric celebrated the Moss Landing Elkhorn Battery System becoming energized & certified, Tesla had the most recent Cybertruck prototype. The company partnered with Tesla to build one of the world’s largest utility-owned lithium-ion battery energy storage systems. The production of Tesla Cybertruck is expected to start in 2023.

Reacting to a tweet from a Tesla enthusiast, Elon Musk commented: “It [Cybertruck] will be our best product ever imo”. Also some pictures from the interior were revealed regarding the appearance in Moss Landing, Clalifornia.

Last week, the Italian company Idra that specialized in huge presses capable of molding partially molten metal, presented its latest creation: a Giga Press capable of exerting a pressure of 9,000 tons, 50% more than the ones used so far by Tesla.

The new version lets Tesla produce, in one piece, the entire front of the Model 3 and Model Y chassis, previously required the conventional stamping of 70 small pieces, which then had to be welded together.

Tesla’s CEO took advantage of the announcement to reveal that the new Giga Press will be used to produce the Cybertruck chassis, which will begin manufacturing in 2023at the Gigafactory in Texas.

On Saturday, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk unveiled that the 10.13 version of the Full Self Driving technology “is a big deal” and that “should be able to drive to a GPS point with zero map data”.

In the same tweet, Musk also confirmed that the 10.12.2 version of the beta program is now expanding to 100k cars. The U.S. automaker is ramping up the number of beta testers after having only a few thousand people in the third quarter of 2021.
