Tesla has just launched its first electric-powered pickup called Cybertruck with an unbelievable, but unique design. The design of the Cybertruck got criticized and comments are flooded and prompted corners of the internet within the launch over its unique appearance. Despite this, it is seemingly striking the special parts among its target audience.
This is such a normal thing that the new change will make most people hard to accept and become familiar with. However, people will be used to the new thing later from time to time and you might be one of them or a special one.
Actually, Cybertruck has its futuristic design that has mostly seen in the sci-fi movie genre. Tesla has brought it to you without hesitation and nothing to fear with failure if its sale doesn't go right. In a tweet posted today, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, claimed that the company has already received 200,000 pre-orders.
As you've known, this futuristic vehicle just launched within three days only from its event that you've seen how tough the Cybertruck is through several hits test demonstration. During that, the sides of the Cybertruck was hit by a hammer without damage, but the truck's supposedly unbreakable metal glass windows broke by striking with a metal ball. Before that, Elon Musk said that the exterior of the Cybertruck is made from stainless steel alloy, the same material that is used for SpaceX, which enables the truck to be bulletproof against at least smaller firearms.
At the launch event, there were many well-known YouTubers joined and got their driving test on the road. Later, MKBHD and Super Blondie have talked about their thoughts and issued pre-order as well.
Pre-order starts at $39,900 for the Cybertruck and is live on official Tesla’s website. Whether the hype converts into actual sales remains to be seen, but initial interest remains impressive and pre-orders are still on-the-go.
Elon Musk also emphasized that pre-order seems to be going for the more expensive options which start at USD69,900 and reach 41% of the orders for this triple motor all-wheel-drive option as opposed to the single motor rear-wheel-drive that starts at USD39,900. Pre-orders only cost $100 to secure, so it's a lot cheaper today for someone to express their interest in the Cybertruck. Even pre-order starts and number of pre-orders are getting more, it'll still take years for the truck to get into people's hands whilst production is slated to begin towards the end of 2021, with the tri-motor all-wheel-drive starting production a year later.
