Somebody has already put up a listing for a Tesla Cybertruck on Turo, a car rental platform.
And the going rate for a test drive is quite frankly outrageous.
Turo isn’t like Sixt or Hertz or Thrifty.
The key difference is anybody can rent out their own vehicle on Turo, so the first thing to note is these Cybertrucks are being listed by private owners.
The rate is a whopping $1,000 per day.
Good gig, if you can get it – as they say.
So far we’ve found two listings.
The first is in San Jose, California, and the car belongs to a private owner.
It’s listed for $950 per day, and it can be delivered to San Francisco for an extra $30.
The other one is in Austin, Texas, and this one’s bit different.
The owner listed a Foundation Series Cybertruck for $1,069 and he claims to be a Tesla employee.
He said your feedback, should you go ahead and rent the truck, will be shared with Tesla in order to improve the vehicle in the future.
In both cases, you can’t take the Cybertruck off-road, which further reiterates Ford CEO, Jim Farley may have been right on the money when he said the Cybertruck is just for “Silicon Valley people”.
The idea wouldn’t be too bad per se.
Tesla doesn’t really use the conventional PR channels the same way other brands do, so getting a Cybertruck to test drive is probably not that easy for potential would-be owners.
And a lot of people have reservations about their reservation, pun intended, for a variety of reasons, including the fact that everyone knows Tesla has accumulated a huge backlog now.
But the daily price is crazy.
Then again the Cybertruck isn’t a cheap vehicle.
The range-topping model, with all the bells and whistles, costs the same as a supercar.
