Tesla is making some changes to the Cybertruck. Not the vehicle itself, but its production schedule.
The automaker originally started taking orders for rear-wheel-drive and dual-motor models to be delivered starting in late 2021, with the top of the line tri-motor truck joining them in 2022.
But after CEO Elon Musk announced it was getting more than twice as many reservations to order the tri-motor than the rear-wheel-drive version, The Cybertruck Owners Group reports that it has swapped them and now plans to launch the tri-motor in 2021 with the dual-motor.
The tri-motor Cybertruck is advertised with a starting price of $69,900, a 500-mile range, a tow rating over 14,000 pounds and a 0-60 mph time of less than 2.9 seconds.
Musk tweeted that at least 250,000 people have placed reservations, which require a $100 deposit, compared to $2,500 for the Tesla Model Y SUV that’s expected to enter production next summer.
