Tesla Delivers Cybertruck To First Customers: Updated Pricing And Features

After four years since its debut, Tesla has delivered the Cybertruck to its first customers, marking a significant milestone. The electric truck was handed over to around a dozen people during an event at Tesla’s headquarters in Austin, Texas. The company also provided updated details about the pricing, range, and features of the Cybertruck.

The rear-wheel-drive version, scheduled for 2025, will start at $60,990, with a range of 250 miles on a full charge. The dual-motor and tri-motor versions, expected in 2024, are dubbed “Cyberbeast.” The AWD Cybertruck will start at $79,990, with a range of 340 miles, 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds, and a top speed of 112 mph.

The tri-motor variant will be priced at $99,990, offering 845 horsepower, 10,296 lb-ft of torque, and around 320 miles of range.

The angular, stainless steel design of the Cybertruck has captivated Tesla fans, but the production journey faced delays and challenges, particularly due to the use of ultra-hard stainless steel for the exterior, making it bulletproof as per Elon Musk’s insistence.

The design, characterized by sharp angles, signals Tesla’s departure from the traditional truck market.

Elon Musk cautioned investors, indicating that the Cybertruck might not generate “positive cash flow” for Tesla for at least a year to 18 months. Despite expressing strong demand, with over 1 million reservations, Musk acknowledged the challenges, stating: “We dug our own grave with the Cybertruck.”

The polarizing design and the cooling market for electric vehicles pose challenges, and attention will now shift to Tesla’s production capabilities and how the Cybertruck competes with other electric trucks in the market.

While the Cybertruck could be a hit, its sales volume may not match traditional truck models from competitors. The unique design and production complexities make Tesla’s entry into the highly competitive truck market unconventional.
