Four years after its debut, the Tesla Cybertruck has finally reached its first batch of customers. The truck was delivered to about a dozen people during a lavish event at the company's headquarters in Austin, Texas, at which Elon Musk predicted the truck would usher in a new, more exciting future.
According to Tesla's website, the company will sell its base model rear-wheel drive version of the Cybertruck for an estimated $60,990 and a "Cyberbeast" version for $99,990, with deliveries for both of these trims starting next year. Tesla also plans to sell an all-wheel drive version of the Cybertruck for $79,900 starting in 2025, per the company website.
The base model rear-wheel drive Cybertruck is expected to have a 250 mile range battery and accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.5 seconds, and the all-wheel drive Cybertruck is expected to have a range of 340 miles and go 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 112 miles per hour. The highest-end Cyberbeast would have the fastest acceleration and a range of 320 miles, estimated, with a top speed of 130 miles per hour.
Musk in October said over 1 million people have reserved the Cybertruck so far.
Meanwhile, competitors including Ford, General Motors and Rivian began to sell their more utilitarian electric pickups. Earlier this week, Rivian, which only manufactures battery electric vehicles, similar to Tesla, started to offer a leasing option for select models of its all-electric R1T pickup truck.
