Full-Self Driving and Premium Features
Tesla’s Cybertruck deliveries started last week, giving 10 customers their first units. And now, they are providing ‘Foundation Series’ models for initial reservation holders – but at a hefty cost of $120,000.
Tesla sent out an email to those who had already reserved the Cybertruck, informing them that they were “invited to order [their] Foundation Series Cybertruck” which was “fully optioned and includes limited-edition laser-etched badging, premium accessories, charging equipment with Powershare home backup hardware, all-terrain tires, Full-Self Driving capability, and more.”
Pricing revealed that the Cybertruck Foundation Series would be sold at a price of $119,990, minus a $1,995 destination fee and the preceding $100 original reservation credit. This is substantially more than the top-of-the-range Cyberbeast model which has an asking price of $99,900. Even though its been unverified by manufacturers, it’s believed that the Foundation Series owes its existence to the Cyberbeast.
One should take into account that there will be more economical choices; the starting price for the Cybertruck is $60,990, but this lone-motor model will only become available in 2025.

The Cyberbeast boasts 845 horses and can accelerate up to 60 mph in just over two and a half seconds. Customers can anticipate 320 miles of capability on a single recharge, but equipping it with a range-extender ups this capacity to 440 miles.
Based on the price – and the fact that Tesla describes the Foundation Series as “fully loaded” – it would appear that it is based on the Cyberbeast. It does seem like a good deal, as it comes with Full-Self Driving capability (a $12,000 option on the Model X) and some premium accessories that have yet to be revealed.
Wealthy fans of Tesla are eager to part with their cash, knowing that this will secure them a special edition model of the much-discussed pickup truck. Having early access to one of the hottest vehicles in the year comes with added extras, and for many it’s priceless!
In a communication sent to reservation holders, Tesla expressed deliveries have already started in California and Texas, and are anticipated to be made available in other states commencing the year 2024. With estimated reservations of more than two million, it is essential for the firm to get the vehicles rolling out of the facility strongly and rapidly. Earlier on this week, the car corporation offered Cybertruck reservation holders a reduction of $1,000 towards the cost of their fresh Tesla.
At the same time, despite how impressive it might be, $120,000 is still a hefty amount that could be put toward getting a Porsche 911 or Mercedes S-Class. Nonetheless, if you have your heart set on a pickup, the indomitable Ford F-150 Raptor R and GMC Hummer EV Pickup can both be had for a similar sum. And for aficionados of the Cybertruck, there’s simply no substitute.
