Tesla has received 146,000 orders for the Cybertruck, Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Twitter.
The automaker’s all-electric pickup was unveiled this week in Los Angeles and has received quite a bit of chatter since. The company set out to build something different than what’s currently available in the truck market, and they certainly achieved that.
The pickup’s peaked roof, tall bed sides, solid strip of headlights across the nose, and bare-metal finish set the truck apart. Not to mention performance, which the company says is on par with a Porsche 911.
The pickup is available for order in three versions:
Musk said most orders are for the dual motor (42%), followed by the tri-motor (41%), then the single motor (17%).
Tesla is asking for a $150 refundable deposit to reserve the vehicle, which is slated for production in 2022.
