Electric car maker Tesla announced the electric pickup Cybertruck on Friday, and although its share price plunged 6 percent because of its ugly look, it still got a lot of orders after big Vs such as Marques Brownlee. Just after Elon Musk tweeted that Cybertruck had now exceeded 200,000.
The electric pickup Cybertruck was launched at a launch starting at 8:00pm Pacific time on Thursday (12:00pm BST on Friday), with bookings reaching 200,000 vehicles just past two booking windows.
