Tesla has already accumulated over 1 million Cybertruck reservations, according to the latest tally. The electric pickup truck still has strong momentum.
When Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck back in November 2019, the automaker started taking reservations with $100 refundable deposits.
It was the company’s lowest deposit amount, and therefore, it is a smaller commitment than with Tesla’s other vehicles, but it helped achieved more impressive numbers.
CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla received over 250,000 reservations for the Cybertruck within a week of unveiling the vehicle.
Generally, Tesla receives a lot of reservations early after an unveiling, and then it tapers off — but that wasn’t the case with the Cybertruck.
Even throughout the pandemic, sources told us that some Tesla stores were getting hundreds of Cybertruck reservations per week, and Cybertruck pre-orders even helped boost sales.
The number was last updated in June 2020, and at that point, the number had risen to over 650,000 Cybertruck reservations.
