The Cyberpunk and Blade Runner themed angular all metal beast was undoubtedly one of the most questionable designs in a vehicle ever.
Obviously the design has been the primary debate for the past few days, but the trucks specs are definitely good. So is the pricing.
While pre-orders aren't ready yet, since the production is yet to begin. However, in a very Tesla way, you can post a small deposit to reserve a spot in the pre-order pipeline.
This time around the deposit is only $100 and its refundable, which might explain in large part how many have actually reserved their pre-order spot.
Musk has been occasionally updating us over the past few days on Twitter, and last night he posted a simple tweet indicating that over 200 000 people have posted their deposit.
This is a massive amount of people showing interest in the futuristic truck, especially after such a divided, even harsh response to the truck's design.
One has to still remember that Ford sells more than a million F-150 trucks each year, and a $100 deposit does not a $40 000 purchase make.
It remains to be seen how this will translate to actual sales, whenever the Cybertruck is finished with improved armored glass.
