Tesla has theoretically pre-sold 1.3 million Cybetrucks

Worth around $80bln

1w ago

Elon Musk famously/notoriously makes exaggerated claims and predictions that almost always end up being way too optimistic. When it comes to new Tesla models, for example, he usually announces deadlines and targets that aren’t met.

That’s definitely true for the Cybertruck, which was first revealed over two years ago but it has since been delayed several times. But you know the drill with Tesla, people believe in the brand, and/or they like the cars, which explains the quite frankly unbelievable number of reservations it‘s received for the Cybertruck: around 1.3m, worth around $80bln.

Tesla pioneered this idea with the Model 3: what you do is you go online, reserve your vehicle for as little as $1,000 (fully refundable), and it’s a win-win. You, the soon-to-be owner know you’ll get your car - eventually - and you can get your money back if you change your mind, meanwhile Tesla can, well, brag about receiving 1.3m orders.

1,270,000 to be exact, and 250,000 people actually reserved their truck during the first week after it was revealed. IF - and that’s a big if - and WHEN these sales are finalised, Tesla will bring home $80bln in revenue. Quite frankly, that’s going to happen, if at all, over years, but it still gives you an idea of Tesla’s potential.

What do you think? Is the Cybertruck going to disrupt the truck segment, and is it actually going to be produced? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
