Tesla Cybertruck Orders Reach 146,000 Says Elon Musk

Tesla announced its Tesla Cybertruck electric pickup truck earlier this week, unveiling a futuristic design unlike anything we’ve seen versus modern-day trucks.

This afternoon, Musk announced on Twitter there have been 146,000 Cybertruck orders already, with 83% of orders for dual-motor and tri-motor configurations combined.

“146k Cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor,” said Musk, adding this was achieved “With no advertising & no paid endorsement.”

The Tesla Cybertruck starts at $39,900 USD, or about $53,000 CAD after current exchange rates. A pre-order can be placed with a $150 CAD refundable deposit. The math works out to $14.6 million USD in deposits so far. That’s a nice little loan for Tesla, which won’t be producing the Cybertruck until late 2021.

Tesla released a trailer for the Cybertruck today on its YouTube channel. The hilarious video description reads, “I’m gonna tell my kids this is the first pick-up.”
