Despite a chaotic launch and broken glass, Tesla has received 146,000 orders for its electric pickup called “Cybertruck” which starts from $39,900.
“146k cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor,” Musk said in a tweet on Saturday.
He referred to three different versions available: single-motor rear-wheel-drive, dual-motor all-wheel-drive and tri-motor all-wheel drive.
The Tesla CEO added that the orders have come with no advertising and no paid endorsement.
In total, Tesla has reportedly received deposits worth $14.6 million in just two days after unveiling “Cybertruck”.
The truck will come in three versions with 250 miles, 300 miles and 500 miles of range, respectively.
The base version of the truck starts at $39,900, while the prices for the top end Tri-Motor All-Wheel-Drive version of the Cybertruck start at $69,900.
The most expensive version of the truck, the Tri-Motor AWDrive will be able to carry 3,500 pounds, tow up to 14,000 pounds and go from zero to 60 in 2.9 seconds.
It comes with six seats and features armored glass and ultra-strong panels that are made of the same alloys found on spacecraft.
Production of the tri-motor variant of the cybertruck is expected to begin in late 2022, Tesla said.
Earlier Musk’s net worth reportedly plummeted 6 percent, bringing it down by $768 million in a single day after a metal ball crashed down the unbreakable glass of his Cybertruck during its launch event.
At “Cybertruck” unveiling, Musk asked the company’s lead designer, Franz von Holzhausen, to demonstrate the strength of the “Armor Glass” by throwing a solid metal, baseball-sized ball at the window, but surprisingly the glass broke when the ball was over-armed into it. (IANS)

"It can be tempting for organisations to see phishing attacks as a relatively low-level threat, but that underestimates their power. Phishing is often the first step in a complex, multi-stage attack. According to Sophos Rapid Response, attackers frequently use phishing emails to trick users into installing malware or sharing credentials that provide access to the corporate network," Sophos' Principal Research Scientist, Chester Wisniewski said in a statement. The findings also reveal that there is a lack of common understanding about the definition of phishing. For instance, 67 per cent of IT teams in India associate phishing with emails that falsely claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and which are usually combined with a threat or request for information.
Four-fifths of Indian organisations assess the impact of their awareness programme through the number of phishing-related tickets raised with IT, followed by the level of reporting of phishing emails by users (77 per cent) and click rates on phishing emails (60 per cent). All the organisations surveyed (100 per cent) in Delhi, Hyderabad, and Kolkata say they have a cybersecurity awareness programme in place. This was followed by Chennai where 97 per cent have such programmes, and then, Bengaluru and Mumbai at 96 per cent each. (IANS/ MBI)
