Yet the final design hasn't even been shown yet and we have no official word on production or delivery.
It's now been nearly two years since the Tesla Cybertruck was shown off in prototype form. At the time, Elon Musk claimed the production Cybertruck will go on sale in 2021, but this seems increasingly unlikely as the semiconductor chip shortage continues to cause complications. Tesla also still hasn't revealed the final production design.
Despite this, Tesla has already secured over a million reservations for the Cybertruck. As reported by Teslarati, a fan-made reservation tracker confirms that Tesla has already received 1,254,872 pre-orders for the Cybertruck, equating to $79 billion if every order is fulfilled.
These are very impressive numbers when you consider the final design hasn't been shown yet. For comparison, Ford recently announced that the F-150 Lightning has had over 120,000 reservations since it debuted in May.
The most popular variant of the Cybertruck is the Dual-Motor configuration, making up 48 percent of the total reservations. In this configuration, the Cybertruck will travel up to 300 miles on a single charge and accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds. Starting at $39,000, the Single Motor is the most affordable version of the Cybertruck, but it's also the least popular, accounting for only seven percent of the total preorders. In this guise, the Cybertruck will cover over 250 miles on a single charge and accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds.
It's important to note that not every reservation will necessarily translate into a sale, but it still illustrates the insane demand for the Cybertruck. If you haven't placed an order yet, prepare for a long wait because the extraordinary demand will inevitably cause delivery delays.
While reservation numbers are impressively high, Tesla still hasn't built a single customer example of the Cybertruck. Last month, Lars Moravy, Tesla's vice president of vehicle engineering, said the Cybertruck is entering "beta phases" of production later this year, so we're not expecting deliveries to start until next year at the earliest.
