Tesla Cybertruck Pricing and Specs Unveiled

GM and Ford Electric Truck Delays Open Door for Tesla

The long wait is over and now we know the details: Tesla Cybertruck pricing will begin at $61,400 and reach close to six figures in its top trim. Performance is impressive at 2.6 seconds to 60 mph but it comes at a premium of $20,000 over the AWD model, which offers a perfectly acceptable 0-60 time around 4 seconds and more range than the top trim "CyberBeast". Potential customers will be eager to hear more from Tesla about "Range Extender" options and Power Share features that could further enhance the practicality of the brand's first all-electric pickup truck.

November 30th, 2023 – Elon Musk has confirmed that the long-awaited Tesla Cybertruck will start at $61,400, and prices will stretch to $99,900 for the top trim CyberBeast model.

The event delivered a small number of Cybertrucks to initial customers, all of which are the AWD version which starts at $79,900. The entry level price of $61,400 comes in the form of a RWD model that will not be available until 2025. Musk had previously alluded to this, confirming on the Q323 earnings call that production would initially build slowly, with a gradual ramp throughout 2024.

Notable models specs include a base of 250 miles range for the RWD version, rising to 340 miles for the AWD model. A "Range Extender" is also referenced on Tesla's Cybertruck configurator page, which bumps the range number by up to 130 additional miles, according to the automaker. Further details on this option were not provided at the delivery event, which also failed to mention the Power Share capability of the Cybertruck, allowing it to act as a battery backup for the owner's home.

In its most powerful form, the CyberBeast, Tesa's truck will accelerate to 60mph in 2.6 seconds, with a top speed of 130 mph and 845 HP.

The final pricing comes in significantly higher than Tesla announced at the original Cybertruck unveil event in 2019. A lot has happened in the years between design and delivery, leaving most industry analysts expecting a higher price of entry. As Ford did with its F150 Lightning, quickly moving away from a $40,000 base work model, Tesla will not be delivering the $39,900 single-motor Cybertruck it anticipated back in 2019 any time soon. However, the Cybertruck remains on par with competitors like the Lightning and Rivian R1T at its respective price points.

With Ford and General Motors sending mixed messages on electrification and confirming temporary electric truck delays last month, Tesla can now stake its claim to a segment of the market that until now has only been served by the Ford F150 Lightning, as well as the premium-priced GMC Hummer EV and Rivian R1T.
