Tesla has received nearly 150,000 orders for its new electric pickup truck – despite its botched launch earlier this week.
The firm’s CEO Elon Musk said 17% of the orders are for the single-motor model, 42% are for the dual-motor version and 41% are for the tri-motor model.
The much-hyped unveiling went off script when the Cybertruck’s windows splintered twice despite Mr Musk bragging about the strength of the glass on the futuristic, stainless steel-skinned vehicle.
He told the audience in California: “You want a truck that’s really tough, not fake tough.
“You want a truck you can take a sledgehammer to, a truck that won’t scratch, doesn’t dent.”
To prove it he then directed a Tesla designer to strike the door with a sledgehammer, resulting in no damage.
But when they threw a metal ball at the driver’s side window and it splintered, Mr Musk said: “Oh my f****** God.”

“Maybe that was a little too hard,” he added.
The passenger window also cracked when the test was repeated.
Some analysts panned the truck’s blocky, angular looks.
Placing an order costs buyers $100 (£77), which Tesla says is fully refundable.
Tesla has said the Cybertruck, which starts at $39,900 (£31,000), will be in production in 2021.
Musk saw more than three-quarters of a billion dollars wiped off his fortune after the embarrassing incident.
