Tesla has received almost 150,000 orders for its new pickup truck, boss Elon Musk has said, despite an embarrassing hiccup at its launch.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
Mr Musk was caught out on stage when the windows of the Cybertruck shattered during a demonstration supposed to show their durability.
Tesla shares dived 6.1% after the event on Thursday and several bad reviews.
With its distinct angular design, the electric truck was greeted with cheers but also bemusement.
But on Saturday Mr Musk tweeted: "146k Cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor".
The demand had come despite "no advertising & no paid endorsement" for the truck, he said.
No date has been given for the Cybertruck's release, but analysts said it would not be ready before the end of 2021 at the earliest.
