Already 146,000 people signed up for the Tesla Cybertruck, with most opting for the two- and three-motor versions.

Elon Musk has just revealed that Tesla received "146,000 Cybertruck orders so far", which seems very impressive for less than 48 hours since the unveiling.

We must add that technically those are not Cybertruck orders, but reservations with tiny $100 deposits, but it still is a lot. There were rumours even about 200,000+ reservations.

Elon Musk adds also that the number was achieved "With no advertising & no paid endorsement." Despite the surprisingly revolutionary design of this pickup, which requires time to be fully understood and appreciated, we cannot forget about the shattered glass, which also didn't help out the much-hyped unveiling event.

Cyber news:

Other interesting numbers from Elon are percents of reservations of particular versions of the Cybertruck"

  • Single motor: 17% (24,820)
  • Dual motor: 42% (61,320)
  • Tri motor: 41% (59,860)

As we can see, most customers are willing to pay more and get two or three motors and stronger capabilities/performance. This has often been the case with Tesla's offerings. Few buyers opt for the base versions of Tesla various models.
