Tesla finally delivers Cybertruck to customers

Tesla has finally commenced deliveries of its controversial Cybtertruck and revealed prices.

The vehicles were handed over at a special delivery event at Tesla's gigafactory in Texas this week, roughly six months after the first production Cybertruck model was revealed and four years since the vehicle was originally announced. 

The company claims that the truck will return up to 340 miles from a single charge, while a top-level tri-motor setup – reserved for the 'Cyberbeast' model – will deliver 845bhp and a 0-60mph time of 2.6 seconds.

Cybertruck has "Powershare" vehicle-to-load charging capability

It's a heavy vehicle, too, with Tesla claiming a weight of over 6,800kg, while all-wheel drive and Cyberbeast models can tow up to 4,990kg. The entry-level rear-wheel drive model, due in 2025, comes with a range of 250 miles and can tow up to 3,402kg.

Cybertrucks get 35-inch all-terrain tyres, 17 inches of ground clearance, locking differentials for better off-road performance, four-wheel steering and "Powershare" bidirectional charging. The body is made from stainless steel to help prevent corrosion and lower repair costs, says Tesla.

Prices weren't revealed at the handover event, but Tesla's US website published them. Starting at $60,990 (£48,221) and rising to $99,990 (£79,056), the Cybertruck is priced some 50% higher than prices suggested by Tesla founder Elon Musk in 2019.

The truck isn't available for UK ordering yet, but customers can place a £77 deposit to reserve a build slot.

The Cybertruck was first revealed in 2019
