Tesla has reportedly paused all Cybertruck deliveries as customers have complained of a potentially fatal flaw with the electric vehicle’s accelerator pedal.

According to mulitple reports on social media, including in the Cybertruck Owners Club forum, customers of the once-highly coveted stainless steel Tesla truck have received messages from dealerships notifying them that their delivery appointments had been cancelled.

Many of the notices reportedly said that the latest shipments of the Cybertruck won’t become available until after April 20 due to “unexpected delays,” as earlier reported by the Daily Mail.

“I asked for clarity as to the specific reason and have been ignored,” one user on the Cybertruck Owners’ Club forum wrote on Friday.

Other users on the site surmised that “it’s an accelerator issue” after fellow Cybertruck owners on X and TikTok pointed out that there is “a SERIOUS design flaw all owner need to check ASAP causing unintended acceleration due to the cheap design of the accelerator pedal (no fasteners).”

“The cover may separate and get stuck behind the trim, which had potentially lead to several accidents,” X user Garage Klub said on Sunday alongside a TikTok showing that the pedal’s cover had come apart.

“This is a prime example of cheap engineering and the cost of going too cheap and too simple … something @tesla is known for.”

In the TikTok, also posted Sunday by user el.chepito1985, a new Cybertruck owner claimed the pedal cover slipped forward, pushing the accelerator to the floor and making the Tesla reach top speeds.

In a subsequent post, Garage Klub noted that a March 4 incident where a Cybertruck crashed into the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel sign was a “supposed accident due to this [accelerator pedal] issue.”

Beverly Hills Police Department officers, however, have yet to conclude what caused the crash, which happened at 2 am.

“This is another black eye for Musk and Tesla and adds to the horror show year so far as this company is navigating a Category 5 demand storm,” Dan Ives, a managing director at New Yokkr’s Wedbush Securities, told The Post.

“We believe Musk is facing a fork in the road moment to turn this growth story around otherwise darker days will be ahead,” Ives added, referencing Tesla’s recent woes.

Last week, the Cybertruck Owners’ Club was flooded with other tales of malfunctioning electric trucks — not long after the futuristic vehicles, which retail starting at $80,000, hit the road in December.

In athreadtitled Worst delivery in my life (truck died in 5 minutes), a Southern California-based owner wrote that after taking his truck for a spin the same day it was delivered last month, the vehicle made it 1 mile down road, started getting steering error, flashing red screen, pulled off side of highway now the truck is dead and Im waiting for a tow truck.

Dealer couldnt do anything for me. It was great for 5 minutes. Tried everything, restarting, screen is stuck black and keeps beeping, the user added in the thread.

Representatives for Tesla did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

Just one day ago, Tesla announced that it was slashing its global workforce of roughly 140,000 by more than 10%.

Musk called it a difficult decision for the company as it grapples with falling sales amid an intensifying price war for EVs.

Mondays dismissals were effective immediately, according to a copy of the email sent to laid off employees seen by Reuters.

The layoffs come less than two weeks after the company posted its first year-over-year drop in quarterly car deliveries since 2020.

Tesla reported earlier this month that it delivered 386,810 vehicles globally in the first three months of 2024 down more than 9% from the 422,875 vehicle sales in the first quarter of last year. The number came in well below Wall Streets expectations of 457,000 deliveries.

The Austin, Texas-based company had produced more than 433,000 vehicles intended to be delivered during the first quarter, meaning roughly 12% of its inventory went unsold.

Despite the shortfall, the results were enough for Tesla to reclaim the title as the worlds top EV seller from BYD.
