Sightings of the futuristic-looking EV pickup have increased as Tesla finally nears its much-anticipated delivery event.
Musk said in April that Tesla was planning to begin deliveries of the truck — which was first unveiled in 2019 — toward the latter half of the year.
Reservations for the coming model topped 1.5 million as of November 2022, according to Electrek. Musk himself said last year that the Cybertruck was sold out through 2025, but he hasn’t indicated just how many orders that equates to.
At least one investor, however, doesn’t really care when the much-delayed Cybertruck finally becomes available. Jim Cramer, the host of CNBC’s “Mad Money,” is a Ford fan through and through. And he doesn’t think Musk’s Cybertruck can match up to the legacy carmaker.

Twitter users, who often bash Cramer for his less-than-accurate takes, were quick to take the Tesla criticism as a win for the EV makers and a loss for Ford.
If Jim says it’s bad I better put 10 on Tesla to win.
