Two years after Tesla was due to deliver its first EV pickups, the Cybertruck is finally here. The base model of the load-lugging EV will cost $61,000 — around $21,000 more than CEO Elon Musk promised when the vehicle was announced four years ago.

Deliveries to reservation holders began during a stage event in Austin, Texas, with Musk himself in attendance. Tesla’s website says that two more versions of the Cybertruck will follow next year, including an all-wheel drive model (around $80,000) and a premium model known as the “Cyberbeast” (around $100,000).

Base model Cybertrucks can travel 250 miles on a single charge, while the premium Cyberbeast can reach 320 miles. The base model, which won’t be delivered in large volumes until 2025, has a single motor that drives the rear wheels and a 0-to-60 time of 6.5 seconds. The all-wheel drive middle model, available next year, reduces that figure to 4.1 seconds. Finally, the premium version, due in 2024, will be able to reach a top speed of 130 mph and go from 0 to 60 in 2.6 seconds. Towing capacities are rated at a massive 5,000 kg.

The Cybertruck is a huge deal for Tesla. It’s the first new vehicle the EV maker has produced in three years. Tesla ran into two years of delays during production, primarily due to the vehicle’s unorthodox design and heavy use of stainless steel.

During the Austin, Texas event, Musk exclaimed: “We have a car here that experts said was impossible. Finally, the future will look like the future”.
