Tesla Now Has 1.5 Million Reservations for the Cybertruck

Over 1,5 million people have put a deposit to be in line for the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck.

  • The controversial truck reportedly received 250,000 reservations within a week of its launch in 2019.

  • The company now says production will begin in 2023.

  • Full details and pricing are still unknown for this model.

Tesla reportedly now has 1.5 million reservations for the Cybertruck three years after its launch and about a year before the planned start of production.

According to a crowdsourced reservation tracker, the truck received 250,000 reservations in the week following its launch and up to 1 million reservations at the beginning of 2021.

This is a testament to Tesla’s popularity and its CEO’s ability to create and maintain hype about future products despite a number of setbacks.

Indeed, production of the Cybertruck has been pushed back a number of times from its 2021 initial start to the current estimate of mid-2023.

In addition, details about the truck have been changed and removed from the automaker’s website since they were announced back in 2019, which suggests that the final product might not live up to the performance or range that was first announced.

Furthermore, the actual launch of the truck was somewhat botched, with the supposedly unbreakable windows smashing in, not once, but twice in front of the crowd.

This evidently hasn’t cooled down the enthusiasm for this controversial-looking truck that Tesla and Elon Musk have often claimed to be the best product the company has ever made.

Of course, reservations are not final orders and Tesla is only asking for a refundable $100 deposit, which means that most of the 1.5 million people currently on the waiting list will abandon the process at some point.

Nevertheless, this is an unprecedented number of reservations for an upcoming vehicle and the Cybertruck would prove very popular if even only a fraction of the current reservation holders follow through and actually buy the truck once it arrives on sale sometime in the future.
