In the three days since its launch, the Cybertruck has had 200,000 orders. Tesla’s polarized pickup will have more hints of some upcoming features. Cybertruck was dubbed the official truck of Mars.
There were quite a few talking points to emerge from the Cybertruck launch, with the on-stage shattering of its armored glass proving a particularly popular one. There was also an over-the-top light and laser show, a sharp triangular design that nobody saw coming and the battering of an innocent door panel with an actual sledgehammer.
Despite its many outstanding features and fancy designs, this truck has surprisingly low costs. Pricing for the Tesla Cybertruck begins at US$39,900, while higher-specced versions with longer range will carry price tags of $49,900 and $69,900. Because of this, the car constantly receives enthusiasm and customer ordering. With 146,000 laying down a refundable $100 deposit to get their names on the pre-order list within 72 hours of the Cybertruck’s introduction.
There are currently at least 200,000 orders deposited. This is a good number. Just for the sake of context, this is already more than the amount of Model 3s Tesla was able to build and ship in all of 2018.
Some note that the car in the US has an average mileage of 30 miles (48 km). Musk also stated on Twitter that Cybertruck owners will be able to add a solar charging option, which will enable the car to generate 15 miles (24 km) of extra range a day. This may be upped further through the addition of solar wings that could provide enough extra juice to travel 30 to 40 miles (48 to 64 km) per day.
Musk also shared a video of Cybertruck confronting the F-150, Ford’s famous pickup.
