Tesla readies Cybertruck
CEO Elon Musk said Tesla has received 146,000 orders for its new wedge-shaped electric pickup truck. The company unveiled the futuristic model to mixed reviews on Thursday night.
Is it worth it? The truck starts at $39,900 plus a refundable $100 order fee. Its unveiling derailed when Tesla design chief Franz von Holzhausen broke the truck’s window during a stunt to show how strong the glass was. Some analysts have panned the design, and Tesla shares fell by more than 6 percent on Friday. The Cybertruck is set to go to production in 2021.
