Tech News

PALO ALTO, Calif. (CNN/WFLA) — Do not expect to see Tesla’s “Cybertruck” on the roads for at least another year, but the electric car maker is already racking up the pre-orders.

Tesla’s all-electric version of a pick-up truck had 200,000 preorders as of Sunday, Elon Musk said.

Musk announced the numbers on Twitter just three days after the vehicle was unveiled.

The Cybertruck starts at just under $40,000, but Musk says more pre-orders are for the more expensive, triple motor version at about $70,000.

Compared to the cost of the truck, pre-orders are a cheap $100, which is why some early adopters may be eager to sign up to be among the first to drive home the futuristic truck.

Production of the Cybertruck will not start until 2021.
