Tesla Inc. created the Tesla Cyber truck. The Cyber truck, which will be the automaker’s first new model, is nearing completion.
The question here is whether Elon Musk’s hype and the 1.5 million pre-orders will be met by the electric pickup truck.
According to Musk, it may not be the best vehicle, but it is Tesla’s best product. Tesla received over 250,000 reservations for the Cyber truck within a week of Musk announcing the truck.
Normally, Tesla receives a large number of reservations immediately following an unveiling, but this was not the case with the Cyber truck.
Throughout the pandemic, however, Tesla stores received hundreds of Cyber truck reservations per week.
Pre-ordering a Cyber truck, on the other hand, helped boost sales.
Tesla is making steady progress toward mass production of the electric pickup truck. According to the company, production will begin in the middle of 2023.
Elon Musk announced the Tesla Cybertruck nearly three years ago. However, car enthusiasts did not give up on this vehicle, which looks like it came straight out of a sci-fi movie from the 1990s. According to Tesla, the number of people who have pre-ordered the Cybertruck has surpassed 1.5 million. Only one question remains: “Will it live up to expectations?”
The Tesla Cybertruck has received 1.5 million pre-orders.
Elon Musk debuted the Tesla Cybertruck in a highly controversial launch in 2019. Musk praised the vehicle’s performance and durability at the event, saying it would set industry standards. He took a sledgehammer and began hitting the car at the event, but nothing happened. After the sledgehammer, he took a stone and threw it at the cybertruck’s ‘unbreakable glass.’ Unfortunately, things did not go as planned here, and the car door glass was shattered.
Despite the scandal, users loved the Tesla Cybertruck’s presentation, and 250 thousand people pre-ordered the vehicle in its first week. It appears that interest has not waned over time, as the number has risen to 1.5 million. It should be noted, however, that this does not imply that Tesla has sold 1.5 million Cybertrucks.
The company currently takes a $100 deposit for each pre-order, with the remaining balance due when the vehicle is ready. This means that anyone with enough money can pre-order even if they don’t intend to buy it. Although we do not know how many of the 1.5 million people will purchase Cybertruck.
When will the production begin?
The most serious issues that Tesla has faced in the past have been with production. Previously, many customers had to wait a long time for their orders to be delivered. However, the company stepped up its efforts by resolving its issues after 2019. According to the company, production of the Cybertruck will begin in mid-2023.
Another source of concern is the price. Elon Musk announced the vehicle’s price at the 2019 event, but the pandemic and global inflation could cause these prices to change to around $50,000-$90,000. If Tesla delivered the Cybertruck at the price and specifications announced in 2019, it would likely outclass the Model Y. (the best-selling Tesla model).
