Update: gives credit to electrek for the original report
Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) quietly updated its website to remove most of the details regarding pricing and tech specs from its Cybertruck. A recent report from Electrek’s Fred Lambert notes that the company’s Cybertruck page has been edited to remove information, leaving a notice on production from 2022 as well as the option to make a fully refundable deposit of $ 100 for that your name is on the waiting list. Tesla did not explain why the Cybertruck page was simplified.
Previously, the page mentioned the truck price of $ 39,900 for the base rear-wheel drive model. The specs also promised a range of 250 miles, a 0-60 mph sprint in six and a half seconds, and a top speed of 110 mph.
The page also mentioned the mid-level $ 49,900 dual-engine Cybertruck AWD with over 300 miles of range, a 4.5-second sprint, and a top speed of 120 mph. Then there was the flagship Tri-Motor AWD priced at $ 69,900, promising over 500 miles of range and a 2.9-second sprint, as well as a top speed of 130 mph.
The updated page now only mentions some of the top-of-the-line specs, such as 0-60 mph run achieved in “as little as 2.9 seconds” and a maximum towing capacity of over 14,000 pounds. While Tesla used to say over 500 miles of range, the information has been updated to remove the most at the end and now officially claims to go “up to 500 miles” between charges.
