Tesla has 200,000 orders for Cybertruck
Tesla Ceo Elon Musk indicated in a tweet on Sunday that the electric-car maker received 200,000 orders for its electric pickup truck within three days of its launch.
Musk, who has been regularly tweeting about the Cybertruck's features since its launch on Thursday, has also been updating his followers with the number of orders the company has received. In an earlier tweet, Musk said the company had received 146,000 orders for Cybertruck and tweeted again on Sunday saying "200K".
Tesla's website allows customers to order the electric truck for a fully refundable $100 and says they can complete their configuration "as production nears in late 2021".
Musk said in a tweet that 42 percent had ordered the dual-motor option, which starts at $49,900, while 41 percent have ordered the $69,900 triple-motor option, production of which is expected to begin in late 2022.
