Since Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck in 2019, more than 1.5 million reservations have been made for the futuristic electric truck. Much has been said about how many of those will convert to actual buyers when the time comes, but according to the latest survey conducted by Recurrent Auto, the majority of Cybertruck reservation holders intend to follow through.
The Recurrent Auto survey took place in March 2023 and asked reservation holders of several different electric pickup trucks if they still intended to purchase the vehicle they had reserved. The company ran the same poll back in June 2022.
According to the survey findings, 75 per cent of Cybertruck reservation holders plan to buy the vehicle when it becomes available. (via Teslarati)
To put that into perspective, Ford saw a decrease from over 90 per cent in June 2022 to just over 70 per cent in March 2023 for its Ford F-150 Lightning reservation list. While the Rivian R1S remains strong with just under 80 per cent. The Chevy Silverado brings up the rear, with only just over 20 per cent of reservation holders intending to buy the vehicle.
The EV truck space is set up to be a competitive one. For Tesla Cybertruck owners, the wait could be only a few more months. From all indications, the final Cybertruck prototype is done, and Tesla is entering the final regulatory certifications before launching into production.
