Elon Musk: We received 146,000 orders for Cybertruck


Tesla’s founder Elon Musk said that the company has already received 146 thousand orders for its new electric car, the Cybertruck pickup.

The American company Tesla, specializing in electric cars, presented on Friday night its new product - the Cybertruck pickup. The design is modeled on the Blade Runner sci-fi movie set in November 2019. The cheapest Cybertrack model will be sold for $ 39,990, a model with a power reserve of 300 miles - for $ 49,990, and finally, the top-end equipment with a power reserve of 500 miles and with three electric motors - from $ 69,990.

"At the moment, there are already 146 thousand orders, 42% which are placed for the car with two engines, 41% - with three and 17% - with one. Without any advertising and paid promotion," Musk wrote on Twitter.

The most popular commentary on the post was the remark that "memes are the best form of free advertising."

During the presentation of the car, Musk said that the new truck is literally bulletproof - the door uses the same alloy as when creating SpaceX space rockets. However, the impact-resistant glass of the car was broken during the demonstration right on the stage.
