At this point in time, Musk’s promises about the highly anticipated EV truck are hard to digest given the product’s tumultuous history. However, given the current state of market inflation, global supply chain issues, and production problems at the Austin and Berlin gigafactories, it is hard to predict how all of that is going to factor in the Cybertruck’s final price tag.
Nonetheless, not everything is necessarily negative about the situation. Just about a week ago, Musk tweeted that “more Tesla commodity prices are trending down than up fwiw,” and similar was the case with inflation.
Assuming Tesla hasn’t drastically changed plans for the Cybertruck models, it should be up for grabs in three trims. At the bottom of the price ladder is the single-motor variant, capable of doing 0-60mph in less than 6.5 seconds, over 250 miles of range, and more than 7,500 pounds of towing capacity. That was originally supposed to start at $39,900.
Next up is the dual-motor AWD trim that was originally said to start at $49,900, and which bumped up the range to over 300 miles. Finally, the flagship triple motor Cybertruck was supposed to start at $69,900, and offer perks like 500+ miles of EPA range, over 14,000 pounds of towing capacity, and the ability to go from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
