The Tesla Cybertruck has gotten the attention of consumers and celebrities alike. Its unique design resembles a vehicle from a Sci-Fi movie rather than a truck from our time. Even the most popular automakers have yet to design anything like the Cybertruck apart from concept vehicles.

The Cybertruck is so popular because it is the physical embodiment of the future. The electric truck has a smooth monochrome exoskeleton made of cold-rolled stainless steel. It is extremely durable. It will also feature a standard autopilot and a subscription option for an advanced Full-Self Driving Mode.

This truck is easily the most unique truck consumers can buy despite the recent reveal of Ford’s F-150 Lightning electric truck. Automakers are chasing down Tesla in the great race to develop the most in-demand electric vehicles, but the electric vehicle and clean energy company is still leaps and bounds ahead. Though Tesla now controls less of the EV market share than last year, both the Tesla Model Y and Tesla Model 3 are still outselling other brands by thousands of units.

Tesla has cornered the electric compact car and SUV market. The Cybertruck is meant to conquer the electric pickup truck market. The company is even producing a hatchback that will start at $25,000 soon.

The Cybertruck is currently the most sought-after truck

According to InsideEVs, the Tesla Cybertruck recently received 17,000 pre-orders in just a week. In contrast, the Ford F-150 Lightning electric recently hit a 100,000 pre-order milestone and is considered popular. The Cybertruck’s insane 1.25 million pre-orders prove that the futuristic truck is going to flood the streets.

What’s even more astounding about the Tesla Cybertruck’s popularity is that its pre-orders are higher than the number of units that many truck models sell annually. That being said, the Cybertruck will either be a huge success and word will spread quickly, or there will be over a million unhappy customers if there are issues.
