At the same time, as the head of the company, Ilon Mask, noted, Tesla specifically did not conduct any large-scale advertising campaigns. The brand’s fans ’interest in the new“ green ”pickup truck has been regularly warming up since last summer, and the last presentation completed what was started.

In just two days, Tesla managed to collect more than 146 thousand orders for its first Tesla Cybertruck electric pickup truck, which was presented on November 21. About the first successes of an unusual novelty that looks like an armored car from films about the future, in an twitter account, Ilon Musk said. According to him, of the 146 thousand pre-orders issued, 42% accounted for a complete Cybertruck with two engines. A three-engine pickup truck was interested in 41% of potential buyers, and an electric car with one engine was wanted by 17 percent of fans of environmentally friendly cars. Such an electric pickup is capable of mileage of 400 kilometers without recharging. This is almost two times less than the “older” pickups.

 To achieve such popularity, the brand did not conduct any large-scale promotions, nor did it invite celebrities.

 The novelty made its public debut last Thursday in Los Angeles, where invited guests, as well as spectators around the world (a live broadcast from the event was organized) were shown a prototype pickup truck with bulletproof casing. Tesla is ready to offer customers three configurations of Cybertruck with different power plants. A top-end electric car will be able to drive more than 800 kilometers without recharging, and it will accelerate to a speed of 96 km / h in just 2.9 seconds. Tesla Cybertruck will have to pay around $ 40,000 for the budget electric pickup
