Tesla Cybertruck, launched by Elon Musk last week, reached 250,000 pre-orders. Cybertruck’s futurist design attracts attention, and the reason for such a high number of pre-orders is shown as a deposit fee of $100. When Tesla launched the model 3 three years ago, it had already received 325,000 pre-orders in its first week. Time will tell if Cybertruck can beat Model 3’s record.
The launch of the Cybertruck at the Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne, California was a quite interesting one. In order to show that the windows of Cybertruck were unbreakable, the test was carried out in front of the audience and the windows of the vehicle were actually broken. Although these moments were met by thousands of people on social media, the vehicle received great admiration from 250,000 pre-orders. With this pre-order number, Tesla earned $25 million in revenue before mass production. When the vehicle is ready for sale, the price range will be around $39,900-$69,000.
Tesla announced that there would be three kinds of Cybertruck. The cheapest single-engine, rear-wheel drive model will cost $39,900. The twin-engine AWD is priced at $49,900. The third version will feature three electric motors and four-wheel drive, 14,000 pounds towing capacity and a battery range of more than 500 miles. This version is priced at $69,900.
A New Dimension
Cybertruck, with its unusual, interesting, on-dimensional design, stands out with its 17 inch interactive screen inside the car. Elon Musk and Tesla’s surprises during the launch were not limited to Cybertruck. During the event, Musk excited the audience with “something else” and brought an ATV to the stage and received great applause from the audience.
It can be found inspiring that Elon Musk brings a different perspective to the automobile world and keeps electric cars on the agenda of technology. It is also possible to say that it is hopeful for entrepreneurs that it will create a fund of 25 million dollars before it starts production.
