Elon Musk recently unraveled his new Cybertruck in Hawthorne, California which soon became the hot topic among many not only due to its sleek design which is unlike anything we have seen before but because of its armored glass that got shattered after being hit by a metal ball in a demo.
The event was rather embarrassing for Tesla and soon after the company’s stock price drastically lowered. This raised many questions about whether people would actually opt for Cybertruck in large numbers.
But they sure have, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk has said there have already been 250,000 pre-orders of his Cybertruck. In a tweet on Monday, he wrote ‘250k’, which seems hard to interpret but his earlier tweets show that it’s the number of pre-orders of the new truck.

Musk had tweeted ‘200k’ last week after he tweeted that the number of total orders had soared to 187,000. He has also mentioned that the number of pre-orders is big despite any advertisements or paid endorsements.
There are three variations of this truck, which Musk mentioned in another tweet, "146k Cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor,"
Tesla has definitely made some amends to Cybertruck and the video shared by Elon Musk in a tweet is a proof. In the video, Tesla’s lead designer throws a metal ball at the truck’s glass and it bounces back instead of shattering the glass as it did previously.Franz throws steel ball at Cybertruck window right before launch. Guess we have some improvements to make before production haha. pic.twitter.com/eB0o4tlPoz— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 23, 2019
