Cybertruck may come in two versions, possibly more expensive

Tesla may have prepared two main powertrain versions, both with all-wheel drive.

The Tesla Cybertruck recently appeared on the NHTSA’s 2024 model year VIN decoder.

The VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) is used worldwide by vehicle makers to uniquely identify a vehicle. The first 3 characters are assigned to each manufacturer. The rest of the characters are assigned by the manufacturer and often change over different models and years.

The 17-digit VIN number for the 2024 model year includes the Cybertruck, with the number 4 labeled “C” (“T” is for Tesla Semi, and the car can be marked with a “3,” “S,” “X,” and “Y” to identify them)

The main thing to look for is the number 8, which includes two options for the Tesla Cybertruck: “D” for the two-motor version and “E” for the three-motor version. This means that Tesla has prepared two main powertrain versions, both with all-wheel drive.

When Tesla launched the Cybertruck in late 2019, it advertised an attractive starting price of $39,900, roughly the average cost of a new car at the time. Two additional high-performance models were added at the time, priced at $49,900 and $59,900 respectively. In 2021, all of this information disappeared from the Tesla website.

Musk said during Tesla’s earnings call on Wednesday that the Cybertruck may be the best product Tesla has ever produced, but it will take a lot of work to produce it in high volumes and sell it at a price people can afford in order to provide Tesla with positive cash flow.

Tesla has yet to announce the actual price of the truck when it finally hits the market, although industry analysts expect the price to be much higher than Musk originally specified.
