Tesla Cybertruck Receives Estimated 2 Million Pre-Orders

The Tesla Cybertruck has generated significant buzz and debate as one of the most talked about electric vehicles in recent history. The unconventional angular design has divided opinions online, but that hasn’t stopped potential customers from placing pre-orders. According to a crowdsourced tracker, Tesla has received an estimated 2 million pre-orders for its first-ever pickup truck.

The majority of prospective customers have opted for the dual-motor and tri-motor versions, while the single-motor and quad-motor versions make up less than 10 percent of the order numbers. Interestingly, almost 70 percent of those who plan to purchase a Cybertruck also have their eyes on Tesla’s Full Self-Driving (FSD) feature.

It is important to note that the pre-order numbers are not exact, as the authors of the tracker mention some calculations have been made to arrive at the estimates. Additionally, the $100 refundable deposit has resulted in a significant $200 million in revenue for Tesla, which has been invested in the pickup’s development.

Although not all reservation holders may follow through with an order, even if 80 percent of the pre-orders are canceled, Tesla would still have an impressive customer base of 400,000. Over time, the tracker has indicated steady growth in pre-orders, with 1 million pre-orders recorded in May 2021, increasing to 1.25 million in August 2021, and reaching 1.3 million in November 2021, two years after unveiling the Cybertruck.

The highly anticipated Cybertruck is set to go on sale during a special handover event expected to take place this month, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
