Maybe you’ll start to see more of these strange and old-designed vehicles in Austin’s streets, because finally, Tesla has delivered its first Cybertrucks to customers, after years of delays and a shocking final price.
The electric trucks were delivered at an event at the Texas Gigafactory in the Austin area. Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk was at the event and he led the new Cybertruck owners to their EVs and guided them on how to open the door themselves. At the end of the event, Musk drove one of the vehicles.
At the event, the vehicles were tested in some interesting demos, including beating the truck with a hammer, shooting it with guns, and even racing the truck against a Porsche 911. This might be the most successful test, as the truck showed that it can tow a Porsche 911 faster than a Porsche 911 can drive itself.
Maybe all of this will sound amazing, but right now, you will see the price of these trucks, and will think they are not cheap. If you want the cheapest “Rear-wheel drive” it will cost you an estimated $60,990 and will be available in 2025. If you want your truck by 2024, you’ll have to reserve the “All-wheel drive” for $79,990 or the “Cyberbeast” for $99,990. When Tesla first announced the Cybertruck they said the vehicle would cost $39,000.
The production and delivery of the Cybertruck was full of delays and accidents. Right now, Tesla is struggling to guarantee its workers safety, as a new report showed that Musk’s urge to deliver the Cybertruck led to numerous accidents inside Tesla’s facilities.
