An online tracker of Tesla Cybertruck says the all-electric pickup now has more than 1.25 million orders.
The first production units of the pickup are expected to roll off the line as soon as Tesla can get its Model Y production up and running. An actual production start date for the Cybertruck has not yet been announced. Chief Executive Elon Musk has said limited production could begin before the end of the year, with production scaling in 2022.
The crowd-souced order tracker suggests that around 48% of the total reservations are for the Cybertruck’s Dual Motor configuration, the most popular choice. The Tri Motor received 45% of pre-orders, and the Single Motor at just 7% of the pre-orders.
When the Cybertruck was introduced in 2019 its angular, bare-metal design was met with mixed reviews. Still, Tesla die-hards and consumers looking for an electric pickup option in the market submitted 146,000 pre-orders on the first day.
If Tesla delivers on the current suggested number of pre-orders, it amounts to $79 billion in revenue.
Tesla is currently working to finish construction at a new Austin, Texas-based factory that will be the home of Cybertruck production.
