The Tesla Cybertruck started its deliveries in late 2023, but it was only for company employees and what appeared to be close friends of CEO Elon Musk. Based on recent reports, however, it appears that Cybertruck deliveries to non-Tesla employees will be starting soon.
It was evident that Tesla is already ramping the production of the Cybertruck over the past few weeks. And while those who were reportedly receiving their respective Cybertruck VINs in the past weeks have been Tesla employees, customers who do not work for the electric vehicle maker have reportedly started receiving their Cybertruck VINs as well.
Reports of the non-Tesla employees receiving their Cybertruck VINs were shared on social media platforms such as X, formerly known as Twitter, on Wednesday. As could be seen in screenshots that have been shared online, it appears that the customers who received their Cybertruck VINs ordered the vehicle’s Long Range Dual Motor All Wheel Drive (AWD) Foundation Series.

Details of the Cybertruck Dual Motor AWD Foundation Series were recently shared in a video featuring the Monroney sticker of the all-electric pickup truck. As can be seen in the document, the Cybertruck Dual Motor AWD Foundation Series costs $101,985, including destination and regulatory doc fees. The Monroney sticker also indicated that Full Self Driving (FSD) Capability is included by default.

Customers ordering a Foundation Series Cybertruck would be able to acquire the all-electric pickup truck at the soonest possible date, though at a pretty steep premium. Considering that FSD is priced today at $12,000 on its own, however, the Cybertruck Foundation Series’ additional cost over the vehicle’s regular price may be quite reasonable.

As per Tesla’s official website, the Cybertruck starts at $60,990 for the base Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) version, though that variant is estimated to see deliveries in 2025. The Cybertruck All-Wheel Drive, on the other hand, starts at $79,990 with an estimated delivery date sometime this year. The top-trim Tesla Cyberbeast starts at a very premium $99,990, and it is expected to see deliveries this year. Cyberbeast customers stand to acquire a pickup truck with three electric motors, 845 horsepower, and a 0-60 mph time of 2.6 seconds.
