Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Saturday there have been over 150,000 orders so far for the Cybertruck, which was unveiled on Thursday.
Musk said the orders came in without any advertising or paid endorsement. The launch of the Cybertruck did not go according to plan. During the unveiling event on Thursday in Los Angeles, the electric vehicle’s “armored glass” windows shattered, just after Musk talked about the design, power, and durability of regular trucks.
The Cybertruck in gun-metal resembles an armored vehicle and has a starting price of $39,900. Tesla says it will start manufacturing the truck in late 2021.
