Two days later, Musk tweeted that the number of pre-orders had reached 146,000. Each of those who expressed a desire to buy a pickup truck paid a deposit of $100. According to users of Cybertruckownersclub who track the reservation dynamics, the number of pre-orders for the Tesla Cybertruck exceeded 522,000.

Earlier, sharing his joy about the popularity of the pickup, Musk wrote that most customers prefer two — and three-engined versions, while the standard and, accordingly, the cheapest one collected the least number of pre-orders. Such a pickup with a single engine on the rear axle will cost $39,900. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h in less than 6.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 177 km/h. Without recharging, the single-engined vehicle can travel more than 400 km and tow 3.4 tons of cargo.

The AWD, two-engined version will cost $49,900. Such a pickup can drive more than 480 km on a single charge, develop a top speed of 193 km/h, accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and tow 4.5 tons of cargo.

The version with three motors will be able to drive up to 800 km on a single battery charge, accelerate to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and develop 209 km/h. The permissible mass of the towed trailer is 6.35 tons. The top-end modification, which according to Musk accounted for 42% of pre-orders made in the first two days, is planned to be produced in 2022.
