The Cybertruck is here – for real this time – and for those who haven’t already reserved, Tesla has a new ordering process. Today, you can pre-order the visually confusing, low-poly pickup truck on Tesla’s website with a $250 refundable deposit.
A small batch of initial preorder holders took delivery of the first production Cybertruck models at an event in Texas. As reservations went up on Tesla’s website in 2019, the automaker happily accepted $100 deposits to get in line to purchase a non-configured Cybertruck model. During the last earnings call, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed that there were over 1 million preorders.
For a short time earlier this week, the price of holding a spot in line for the Cybertruck went up to $250. Later, Tesla closed preorders and added a countdown timer for the delivery event. Now, Tesla has reopened pre-orders and is inviting interested buyers to drop $250 to join the back of the line. It lets you choose between rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and a new high-end “CyberBeast” version of the truck with a new starting price of $60,990. Cybertruck options are as follows:
Once you have paid your “refundable” deposit, you will receive an invitation when your Cybertruck is ready to be configured. It has not been confirmed whether the previously announced tri-motor setup is present in the Cyberbeast model or not.
Tesla originally offered a single-motor Cybertruck model with 250 miles of range on a single charge for $39,900, a dual-motor version with 300 miles of range for $49,900, and a top-tier triple-motor model with an almost unbelievable 500 miles of range Had promised. For $69,900.
The Cybertruck made its mark in 2019 as Tesla’s sixth production vehicle and one of the first all-electric pickup trucks announced for consumers. Since then, Ford released the F-150 Lightning and Rivian delivered the R1T, and people can actually buy them now. But the Cybertruck has an entirely different appeal, and it’s certainly better looking than the prototype on the road today.
