Tesla Cybertruck pricing

On November 21 at a special event in Los Angeles, Tesla finally unveiled its Cybertruck. The new Cybertruck will start at $39,900 before incentives in the US, which is a lot less than most people expected.

The more expensive versions, which are going to start at $49,900 and $69,900, are coming in “late 2021,” while two more expensive versions with more motors and bigger battery packs are going to be available in “late 2022.”

According to reports, the majority of pre-orders are choosing the dual motor and tri-motor versions. Only an estimated 17% of the pre-orders are for the single motor model.

Tesla Cybertruck release date

The Cybertruck is scheduled to be released in late 2021 for the dual-motor AWD version. The single-motor versions will be released in late 2022.

Currently, it’s estimated that a half million Cybertrucks have been pre-ordered.

The company hasn’t updated the number in months, but Cybertruck reservation holders at Cybertruckownersclub.com have been keeping a tally of pre-orders, and based on their estimate, Cybertruck reservations have now reached over 500,000.

Tesla hasn’t updated its official number in a few months since CEO Elon Musk announced they had 250,000 pre-orders within a week of the unveiling.

Where will Cybertruck be built?

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced today that Tesla has started scouting locations for Cybertruck production and plans to build the truck in “central USA.”

Tesla Cybertruck range and specs

Three versions of the Tesla Cybertruck are going to be available with different battery packs and drivetrain configurations. The single motor RWD version will offer 250 miles of range. A dual-motor all-wheel-drive version will reach 300 miles of range, and a tri-motor version will have 500 miles of range.

Cybertruck is built with an exterior exoskeleton.

Cybertruck is built with an exterior shell made for ultimate durability and passenger protection. Starting with a nearly impenetrable exoskeleton, every component is designed for superior strength and endurance, from Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin to Tesla armor glass.

Cybertruck can tow up to 14,000 pounds, seats six people, has onboard power and compressed air, and has 3,500 pounds of payload capacity.

Tesla Cybertruck accessories

While no accessories are officially for sale, there has been a lot of speculation about various ways to make the Cybertruck work in more situations.

Musk has said the the Cyberquad, an electric ATV, is going to be launched as an option when the truck goes on sale. We learn in November there will be a camper configuration as well.

Musk has also mentioned an option to add solar panels to the roof that would charge up to 15 miles per day. For many commuters, that would cover a drive to work.

Tesla Cybertruck design

During his presentation, Elon Musk warned that the design might be too polarizing due to its futuristic Blade Runner-esque look, and no one knew exactly what he meant by that, but now it’s clear that he wasn’t kidding.

Cybertruck is built with an exterior shell made for ultimate durability and passenger protection. Starting with a nearly impenetrable exoskeleton, every component is designed for superior strength and endurance, from Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin to Tesla armor glass.

Tesla Cybertruck sits six people and is equipped with a 6.5-foot bed, which they call the Cybertruck vault. The top is covered, but it unrolls if you need to fit in something higher than the roof of the “vault.”

Pre-orders are now live for $100 down.
