The Cybertruck, which was unveiled in November at the Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne, California., isn’t anticipated to enter manufacturing till late 2022. But that hasn’t stopped 1000’s of U.S. customers to plunk down a $100 refundable deposit for the truck.
Just weeks after the official unveiling, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that there have been 250,000 reservations for the vehicle.
Tesla is now testing potential curiosity amongst Chinese customers.
It’s not possible to foretell what number of those reservations — in China and the U.S. — will convert to precise sales. It will probably be more than a yr before there are any solid results. Tesla hasn’t even finalized its decision on the place it is going to build the automobile.
Elon Musk tweeted in March that Tesla was scouting places for a manufacturing facility that may be used to supply Model Y crossovers for the East Coast market in addition to the Cybertruck.
At the time, Musk mentioned that the manufacturing facility can be positioned within the central part of the United States.
Initially, Tesla was eyeing Nashville and had been in talks with officers there. The firm has since turned its consideration to Austin and Tulsa. Talks in Austin have progressed quickly and it seems probable that the manufacturing facility will end up in a location simply outside of the city.
Although Tulsa officers have been fast to notice that talks with Tesla have continued there as properly.
Tesla has mentioned it is going to provide three variants of the Cybertruck. The most cost-effective model, a single motor, and the rear-wheel-drive model will cost $39,900 (or almost 30 lakh INR) have a towing capability of seven,500 kilos, and more than 250 miles of range.
The mid-tier model can be a dual-motor all-wheel drive, have a towing capacity of more than 10,000 kilos, and can drive more than 300 miles on a single charge. The dual-motor AWD model is priced at $49,900 ( or 36 lakh INR).
The third model may have three electric motors and an all-wheel-drive, a towing capacity of 14,000 kilos, and a battery range of more than 500 miles. This model is referred to as “tri-motor,” which is priced at $69,900 ( or 51 lakh INR).
