According to the Auto News featured in Business Insider, Tesla Cybertruck is making a record of sorts. The automaker has already received 1.87 lakh orders for the electric pickup truck, which was unveiled on 22 November. Cybertruck still has a tremendous interest when the vehicle’s “ultra-strong” armored glass windows shatter, demonstrating their tolerance. Much awaited performance actually.
In a tweet from the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk stated that the automaker had received 1.87 lakh orders for Cybertruck. Earlier on November 24, Musk had reported that 1.46 lakh orders have been received, of which 42 percent of customers are dual, 41 percent tri and 17 percent single motor variants.
