Tesla Cybertruck Reaches 250,000 Pre-Orders In Just Five Days

Tesla Cybertruck Reaches 250,000 Pre-Orders In Just Five Days

With pre-orders already reaching 250,000 according to tweets by Elon Musk, the new Tesla Cybertruck has obviously hit the industry hard. It may have styling that only a mother could love, but this has pushed it into conversation and in front of potential customers, meaning that in only five days, Tesla has taken a quarter of a million deposits.

These $100 deposits are refundable however, so we must bear in mind that the entirety of these may not translate into actual sales. People will pull out, but obviously Elon and Tesla is aware of this.

The bottom of the range single motor is being touted for 2021 production alongside the middle of the range dual-motor. The range-topping tri-motor however will come a year later. Elon has broken down the proportion of sales for these three variants on Twitter, so using these percentages, we can estimate the potential revenue from the deposits taken so far.

17% of deposits were taken for the single motor, 42% have gone for the dual-motor, and 41% have gone for the high performance tri-motor. With the advertised prices at $39,900, $49,900, and $69,900 respectively, Tesla will make an approximate revenue of $14billion. This of course doesn’t take into account customers pulling out, or if they’ve added the self-driving option.

We can’t wait to see these trucks make their way onto the road. We’ve already been surprised by videos of it alongside normal cars. Articles to come…

  1. I have an interest in them but for the foreseeable future, until they extend range, they will only be good for single trip delivery and hauling use.

    They are poor commuter vehicles due to their size and range.
