Elon Musk unveils the Tesla Cybertruck

By Jordi Bou

December 1, 2023 - Tesla’s long-delayed electric pickup comes at a time when the company is battling weakening electric vehicle demand and rising competition.

The Cybertruck comes in three configurations: rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and the so-called Cyberbeast. The cheapest version of the Cybertruck will cost $60,990, which is more than 50% over the price Musk floated when he announced the vehicle in 2019.

That version, a rear-wheel drive model with a battery range of 400km, won’t be available until 2025. Tesla is offering delivery next year for the two more expensive models, including the Cyberbeast, which has a price tag of nearly $100,000.

Cybertruck, two years behind schedule, enters a hot pickup truck market to compete with the likes of Ford’s F150 Lightning, Rivian Automotive’s R1T and Chevrolet’s Silverado EV.

Rivian's R1T has a starting price of $73,000, while the F-150 Lightning starts at about $50,000. Chevrolet’s Silverado EV costs $77,905.
