On Twitter, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the company has received no less than 146,000 advance orders for the new pickup. The 146,000 customers who pre-ordered have put $ 100 in deposit, totaling nearly eight billion dollars in sales. However, customers will not be able to get their car until the end of 2021, when the pickup will start to be delivered.

According to Musk's tweet, 17 percent have chosen the cheapest model with one engine. 42 percent have chosen the Dual Motor option, and 41 percent have pre-ordered the most expensive three-engine model.
