Musk said during Tesla’s earnings call in July that he would not necessarily be present at such future events, unless he had something really important to say, indicating that he may have an update on Cybertruck and the company’s other products.

Tesla unveiled the futuristic electric pick-up truck in 2019 that is made of stainless steel used in rockets. Musk has touted receiving several hundred thousand orders for the Cybertruck when preorders were opened.

At a shareholder meeting in October, Musk said Cybertruck production will begin next year and reach volume production in 2023.

Tesla shares closed up 5% at $1136.99 on Monday.
