We’ve been keeping an eye on Tesla getting ready to make this electric pickup truck, like setting up the production line and stuff. They even showed off some cool pictures of the line recently. But until now, we didn’t know much about the companies helping them make the Cybertruck.
Well, today we found out that a company called Seoyon E-Hwa from Korea is gonna make a ton of interior parts for the Cybertruck. They’ve got a huge order from Tesla for all the A, B, and C pillars, which will last until 2028. That’s worth a whopping 300 billion won (almost $230 million)!
You know, Tesla works with a lot of car parts suppliers in Korea, and Seoyeon E-Hwa is a big one. They usually work with Hyundai, another Korean car company. They even have factories in the US to help Hyundai and Kia make cars here.
It’s a good bet that Seoyeon E-Hwa’s US factories will make the Cybertruck panels, since Tesla is gonna build the truck in Texas. They’re planning to start making the Cybertruck this summer and give out the first ones by the end of September.
But don’t get too excited yet – Tesla says they won’t be making a whole bunch of these electric pickup trucks until next year. So, we’ll just have to wait a bit longer!
