Tesla has quietly reinstated an anti-flipping policy for its Cybertruck electric pickup in its latest revision of its order agreement in the US.
As reported by X user Greggertruck and Drive Tesla Canada, the Tesla Cybertruck‘s US order agreement now once again stipulates that people can’t sell their Cybertruck within the first 12 months of ownership.
The US electric vehicle carmaker briefly removed this clause from its US order agreement following backlash.
If owners now sell their Cybertruck within the first 12 months of ownership, Tesla may “seek injunctive relief to prevent the transfer of title of the vehicle” or “demand liquidated damages” of up to US$50,000 (~A$76,000) if Tesla hadn’t granted permission for the sale to take place.
In addition to being sued for selling the electric pickup, Tesla would also ban you from buying any future vehicles from the company.
This latest change in the Cybertruck order agreement was picked up by people who received emails from Tesla to place an order for the Foundation Series Cybertrucks.
The Foundation Series consists of the Cybertruck All-Wheel Drive at US$99,990 (~A$153,000) and the Cybertruck Cyberbeast at US$119,990 (~A$183,000).
These Foundation Series versions of the Cybertruck are approximately US$20,000 (~A$31,000) more expensive than the approximate pricing listed by Tesla at its launch, but include Full Self-Driving (FSD) Capability and a range of accessories as standard.
As recently reported, Tesla officially delivered the first few examples of the Cybertruck as part of a live event at is plant in Texas.
The Tesla Cybertruck is able to be ordered again in North America, but this function isn’t available on the Tesla Australia site. It only displays a ‘Get Updates’ button.
It’s still unclear if the Tesla Cybertruck is going to be offered outside North America.
