According to Musk:

Musk also stated:

With no advertising & no paid endorsement,

There are technically 3 versions to the Cybertruck that are going to be offered. A single motor – rare wheel drive for $39,900 with 250+ miles, a dual-motor – all-wheel drive with 300+ miles for $49,900 and a tri-motor – all-wheel drive with 500+ miles for $69,000. It does without saying that the single motor has the least power. Here is a screenshot from the Tesla website detailing the specs.

Customers ordering the CyberTruck will have to wait a long time for delivery though. The Single and Dual-motor versions of the truck are said to leave the assembly line by late 2021 whereas the Tri-Motor version isn’t expected until late 2022.

However, this pre-order strategy has been used by Tesla for a long time now helping the company with short term revenue. The same thing happened with the Model 3 in 2016 with the car getting almost 276,000 pre-orders in a just a few days after it’s unveil.

Although the Cybertruck has been the center of jokes around the internet after it unveils and unusual design, the pre-order numbers still prove that Tesla has a lot of happy and loyal customers as well as early adopters for it’s technology.
