After years of production delays, Tesla CEO Elon Musk handed over the first batch of Cybertruck EVs to their new owners. The company has also announced pricing for the luxury electric truck. Buyers can expect to pay anywhere from $60,990 to $100,000 MSRP (and potentially $11,000 less after rebates and tax credits). The company has launched an online configurator tool for those interested in placing an order.
Tesla also officially revealed the vehicle’s performance specs and model options at the event. The entry-level version is the $60,990 single-motor rear-wheel drive. It will offer an estimated 250 miles of range and a 6.5 second zero-to-60. It won’t be released until the 2025 model year.
The mid-level model is the $79,990 all-wheel drive version and sports e-motors on each axle. It will offer 340 miles of range, a 4.1-second zero-to-60 and 600 HP with 7435 lb-ft of torque. Its 11,000-pound towing capacity is more than the Ford Lighting XLT’s 10,000-pound maximum.
For $99,990, you can buy the top of the line Cyberbeast. The Cyberbeast comes equipped with a trio of e-motors that will provide AWD handling, a 320 mile range, a 2.6-second zero-to-60, a 130 MPH top speed, 845 horses and 10,296 lb-ft of torque.
The event caps nearly half a decade of design and development that started in 2019 and has been subject to intense hype, promotion and scrutiny throughout.Developing
