Tesla already received 146,000 Cybertruck pre-orders worth over $8 billion


Elon Musk announced that Tesla already received 146,000 Cybertruck pre-orders just over a day after they unveiled the electric pickup truck to mixed reviews.

The Tesla Cybertruck has been polarizing, to say the least.

Many people didn’t like the radical design of the electric pickup truck, but most agree that the specs and price are impressive.

Right after the unveiling on Thursday night, Tesla started taking reservations for the truck with a $100 deposit.

Today on Twitter, CEO Elon Musk confirmed that the automaker received 146,000 Cybertrucks reservations after the first day:

“146k Cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor.”

Here’s the breakdown of orders based on Musk’s comment:

Tesla Cybertruck RWD: 24,820 reservations (worth ~$1 billion before options)Tesla Cybertruck Dual Motor AWD: 61,320 reservations (worth ~$3 billion before options)Tesla Cybertruck Tri Motor AWD: 59,860 reservations (worth ~$4.2 billion before options)

It compares to Tesla securing 180,000 Model 3 reservations within the first 24 hours after the unveiling in 2016.

However, Tesla was requiring a $1,000 deposit to place a pre-order at that time.

As for the Model Y, Tesla never released reservation numbers for the electric crossover, which was unveiled in March of this year.
