Tesla quietly pulls Cybertruck specs and pricing from the website

After announcing a delay of its electric pickup launch until H2 2022, Tesla silently deleted nearly everything on its official website regarding the expected pricing and features of the Cybertruck.

After announcing a delay of its electric pickup launch until H2 2022, Tesla silently deleted nearly everything on its official website regarding the expected pricing and features of the Cybertruck.

Presenting the truck at a special event a few years ago, Elon Musk said three version would be available. The most affordable of them would have one rear-axle mounted motor and sprint 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 6.5 seconds. It would also reach a top speed of 177 PS (175 hp / 130 kW) and have up to 400 km (248 miles) of range, all for an expected MSRP of $39,990 USD.

However, a recent price bump saw even the relatively affordable Tesla Model 3 jump to $42,000 before options. It is hard to imagine the truck being any more affordable than that; in fact, it should be considerably more expensive. Furthermore, Tesla mentioned intentions to launch an-entry level spec in late 2023 or early 2024, so the first Cybertruck to reach production will be an expensive First Edition.

All that is left on the website right now are the specifications of the range-topping tri-motor version of the Cybertruck. Like before, it states that the car needs 2.9 seconds to reach 60 km/h (97 km/h) and maxes out at 210 km/h (130 mph). One notable change was made to the driving range: what used to be ‘500+ miles’ (800+ km) became ‘up to 500 miles’.

The pre-order page has also changed, with the Full Self-Driving feature no longer having a guaranteed pre-order price of $10,000.
