Interest in Elon Musk’s radical and polarising Cybertruck is going wild, with 250,000 pre-orders now taken for the all-electric utility truck since its launch last Friday.
On Monday, the Tesla CEO and co-founder announced that in the first two days, 146,000 orders had been taken, then 187,00 as of Monday morning (Australian time), then 200,000 that afternoon.
On Wednesday, Musk announced 250,000 pre-orders – which require a fully refundable deposit of just $US100 a ($A150 in Australia) had been taken.
