Climate Change Concerns Elon Musk, Tesla Cybertruck is Legit Proof
Merely two days post reveal, Tesla CEO Elon Musk reported that Tesla Cybertruck witnessed record breaking pre-orders. The launch event of the electric car, held at California, received mixed response as it displayed cracked armoured glass windows at a time when most companies would like to introduce perfection.
Expressing his delight at the amazing response the vehicle received, Musk took to Twitter saying that the car got 146,000 orders till November 23. He tweeted, “146k Cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor.” The increase in orders is despite doing any advertisements or paid endorsements.
Described as “a really futuristic-like cyberpunk, Blade Runner pickup”, the Tesla Cybertruck certainly had ill effects on the company’s market share. According to Forbes, overall Tesla shares fell by six percent, bringing Musk’s immense personal net worth down by $768m in a single day.
Giving details about placing the order for Tesla Cybertruck, the firm said that the cost of placing an order is $100 and easily refundable. Elon Musk highlighted that almost 17 percent of the orders were placed for single-motor model, the dual motor version saw 42 percent orders and the tri-motor model saw 41 percent orders.
The production of the electric battery vehicle, said Elon Musk, will take place in 2021 starting at $39,900, or £30,700. Speaking to the audience in Hawthorne, California, Musk revealed that Tesla Cybertruck will come in three variants. Soon after its launch, potential customers started expressing their views about the future oriented design, making #cybertruck a trending topic on Twitter.
As stated by the Managing Director at Wedbush Securities and Tesla analyst, Dan Ives, “Tesla is leading the infotainment race with these in-car entertainment services”. He added, “They’re miles ahead of other car manufacturers in terms of how they’re thinking about the in-car experience.”
The deluxe model of Tesla Cybertruck will be able to travel twice the distance and will sell for $69,900. In comparison to its competitor, Ford F-150 that will be able to carry maximum payload of 3,270 pounds, the Cybertruck would carry a maximum payload of 3,500 pounds.
Having 500 miles of range on the top tier Tri-Motor Version, Tesla Cybertruck is surely a game changer. With the new-six-cylinder Power and a range of almost 850 miles on a single 26-gallon tank of diesel, F-150 is not much behind in the race. Also, the Cybertruck will have nearly 15 inches of ground clearance as compared to the 9.4 inches of ground clearance of F-150. Even though it lags behind on most parameters, the Ford F-150 makes a win on the pricing as it begins at $28,496 in 2020.
In another news reported by The Verge, Elon Musk has been making generous efforts in favour of climate change. He donated one million trees to the Arbor Day Foundation. It was YouTuber Marques Brownlee who gave him this idea to plant trees via teamtrees.org.
Only if all CEO’s thought like Musk, mother earth would suffer a little less!
