Tesla announced on Nov. 30 the official start of deliveries for the Cybertruck, first announced in 2019. A handful of customers were able to pick up the first orders of the electric pickup truck at Tesla’s factory in Austin, Texas.

In addition, the company has released the updated price tag for the vehicle, as well as specs for the higher-priced trim versions.

When first introduced, the Cybertruck had an initial price of $39,900. Four years later, the price has increased by more than $20,000, still cheaper than some other electric pickups like the Rivian R1T ($73,000) and the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV ($77,905), but more expensive than the F-150 Lightning ($49,995)

According to Tesla’s website, the least expensive, single-motor RWD model will be available in 2025. The All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and the Cyberbeast are set to be delivered in 2024.

Initial vehicles will roll out to reservation holders in 2024 but not in large numbers.
