200,000 pre-orders of Tesla Cybertruck reached, worth over $10 billion

Tesla is really racking up the pre-orders of its exciting new Cybertruck, with Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeting that the company has received over 200,000 pre-orders for the Cybertruck so far.

It was barely 24 hours ago that it was reported Tesla had over 146,000 pre-orders of its new Cybertruck, seeing the company rack up over $7.5 billion in sales pretty quickly -- but with 200,000 vehicles now sold those numbers have increased. Just a quick, rough calculation of 30% more Cybertruck's sold on the $8B already sees that number climb north of $10.6 billion.

Tesla had 128,000 reservations of its Model 3 in the first 24 hours post-debut, so while the Cybertruck is lagging... there are a few things to consider. First, the Tesla Cybertruck is a much more expensive electric vehicle -- and it has 3 different models at varying prices. Secondly, it is not a mainstream car and has a specific audience it is aimed at.
