Tesla’s Long-Awaited Cybertruck Is Finally On Its Way To North America

The first Tesla Cybertrucks are on their way to North America, ahead of the vehicle’s official launch next week. The first trucks will be presented to customers on November 30 at a special live-streamed event at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, with Elon Musk presenting. When the unconventionally-shaped vehicle was unveiled in 2019, Tesla promised that deliveries would begin in 2021, but production has been hit with delays that Musk says are related to the price of batteries. Musk has revealed that mass production will not begin until 2024. Up to 1.5 million buyers have already paid $100 to reserve a Cybertruck, but it’s not clear when those buyers will receive their vehicles. The vehicle is an all-electric truck with an angular body and is expected to start at $39,900. The single-motor, rear-wheel drive vehicle has a range of about 250 miles, a 7,500-pound towing capacity, and can go from zero to 60mph in 6.5 seconds. Dual and triple motor versions are available, with the dual motor model carrying a range of 300 miles and costing $49,900, while the triple motor model has a range of 500 miles and costs $69,900.
