There are only a few days left before the Tesla Cybertruck’s first deliveries, and in an apparent effort to generate more attention for the vehicle, the EV maker has brought its all-electric pickup truck to several of its physical stores. The public’s reaction has been very notable.
Tesla bulls such as The Future Fund Managing Partner Gary Black have noted that the Cybertruck will have a “halo effect” of sorts for the electric vehicle maker. This suggests that even those who will not be purchasing the Cybertruck may end up purchasing one of the company’s other electric cars because their attention was captured by the all-electric pickup truck.
Over the past few days, this does seem to be the case. In social media posts, electric vehicle advocates and Tesla community members shared photos and images of Cybertruck displays that were attracting quite a lot of interest from visitors. Such a reaction bodes well for the Cybertruck, as it hints that the vehicle really is an attention-grabbing product.
The following are some of the posts shared by electric vehicle enthusiasts about Tesla’s Cybertruck displays.
The attention surrounding the Cybertruck seemingly echoes the interest that surrounded the Tesla Model 3 prior to its unveiling. At the time, Tesla was only delivering the Model S sedan and the Model X SUV, so the company was not considered a mass-market car manufacturer yet. The Model 3 was the electric car maker’s first mass-market car, and EV enthusiasts were so hyped about the product that some stood in line for hours just to reserve the vehicle. Later Model 3 displays also attracted a lot of attention.
Needless to say, the EV market has changed a lot since the Model 3 was unveiled. But despite the electric car segment being far more mature now, one could not help but feel like the Cybertruck is indeed yet another Model 3 or Model Y moment for Tesla. Sure, it’s just another EV that just happens to be designed differently compared to others in its segment. But considering the consumer interest it is already drumming up today, it does seem like Tesla is about to capture lightning in a bottle once more with the Cybertruck.
The Tesla Cybertruck is expected to have its first delivery event at Giga Texas this November 30, 2023.
