Tesla appears to have walked back its no-resale policy for the forthcoming Cybertruck electric pickup in a revision of its order agreement in the US.
As reported by Cybertruck Owners Club and picked up by Carscoops, the Tesla Cybertruck’s US order agreement no longer stipulates that people can’t sell their Cybertruck within the first 12 months of ownership.
This now opens the door for people to take delivery of the Cybertruck and then sell shortly after for a profit.
As recently reported, people who sold their Cybertruck within the first 12 months of ownership could be “demanded” to pay for “liquidated damages” of up to US$50,000 (~A$77,000) 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.
Deliveries of the long-awaited Cybertruck are set to commence on November 30, 2023, with the first scheduled to take place at an event held at the company’s Gigafactory in Texas.
It’s likely updated prices and specifications will be confirmed at the delivery event.
According to recently leaked specifications that reportedly come from a Tesla insider, the Cybertruck will come with two motor configurations.
The dual-motor variant appears to weigh 3025kg, with the tri-motor variant weighing 3125kg.
According to the Tesla website, the electric ute will boast up to 804km of range and be able to achieve a 0-60mph (0-96km/h) time of 2.9 seconds.
The Cybertruck has been spied testing in public numerous times, with the most recent sighting occurring late last month on an off-road course.
The electric ute also appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, before the host show an arrow at it. The ute has also been shot at with a submachine gun, just to prove how tough it is.
However Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said previously how difficult the manufacturing process is for the stainless steel-bodied Cybertruck – causing major production delays.
He said Tesla will end up producing roughly 250,000 Cybertrucks a year, but only in 2025 as production will ramp up slowly.
