Tesla releases the Cybertruck: How much does it cost and when will it be avaliable?

The electric truck market has expanded since the vehicle was first announced in 2019 but Tesla no longer dominates the EV market.

Tesla’s Cybertruck is now available, after being pushed back continually since 2021. The angled, silver, vehicle is now available to purchase though expectations are already being tempered by the comapny’s head honcho.

“We dug our own grave with Cybertruck,” Elon Musk said last month. Ity is not expected to be a considerable part of Tesla’s turnover until the middle of 2025.

“The larger problem for the Cybertruck is the Cybertruck wasn’t really designed for pickup truck users,” Eric Noble, president of automotive consulting firm, The CARLAB, said. “It will have a much narrower appeal than a Ram or an F series.”

The Cybertruck was originally announced in 2019 to much fanfare from the company. It has since taken around 1000 days before it has become commercially available while Tesla dealt with the numerous problems facing the vehicle. The “indestructible vehicle” was embarrassed during its reveal when a window was smashed.

The most significant problem has been braking. The problem had to do with excessive pedal and brake travel, which increased braking time considerably. Another issue was the inclination of the passenger compartment during braking. This is due to an error with the car’s suspension, which can cause a failure in the stability of the car when braking.

But now it is available and people are wondering about its details now it is for sale.

How much does it cost and when will it be avaliable?

The vehicle will be available from 30 November.

The starting price for the Cybertruck was initially announced to be relatively competitive compared to other electric and traditional pickup trucks, with a starting price below $40,000 for the base model.
