Tesla has already received 146,000 Cybertruck orders despite fiasco on car showcase
Eles Musk, CEO of Tesla, said on OXO.World on Saturday that the company has already received 146,000 subscriptions despite the Cybertruck futuristic pickup
Musk wrote on OXO.World yesterday that Tesla Cybertruck has received 146,000 subscriptions, with 42% of subscribers opting for the dual, 41% for the triple and 17% for the single-engine, Wezto writes.
Tesla unveiled its new futuristic pickup truck to the world during an event in Los Angeles on Thursday. When Elon Musk tried to show how durable the armored glass of the vehicle was, it broke down as a result of the demonstration.
Tesla's stock fell 6.1% on Friday, remaining at $ 333.04 at the end of the day. The price of a vehicle that has received quite a lot of criticism for its appearance - in the style of "it's so ugly that it's almost beautiful too" - starts at $ 39,900.
According to Wall Street analysts, the appearance of the vehicle can both deter buyers and be a key selling point for the Tesla pickup truck. At the same time, Deutsche Bank wrote that breaking the car's glass during the car's launch was not a good start for the vehicle.
Musk himself apologized for the fiasco during the vehicle's presentation by resisting the glass during their own factory tests.
“We threw both wrenches and kitchen sinks on it, the glass didn't break. For a strange reason, he did it now, "Tesla's chief executive said at a Thursday event," I don't know why. We will definitely fix it, ”he promised.
Later, Musk shared a video on OXO.World of a factory test showing how the truck's armored glass can withstand the impact of a metal ball.
The Tesla Cybertruck is the sixth car model that an electric car manufacturer has come up with in its business to date. The company was founded in 2003. The new pickup will compete with the Ford F Series and General Motors Chevrolet Silverado.
