The Cybertruck is a ‘tiny bit’ more expensive than we’d hoped, especially in its Cyberbeast configuration.

And now that people are finally taking deliveries of their truck, we know exactly how expensive it can actually be.

Elon Musk made it clear ahead of the official delivery event the Cybertruck wouldn’t be as ‘cheap’ as promised.

Back in 2019, when it was first announced, Musk said it would start at just under $40,000.

However, now that it’s here, the truck costs twice as much – potentially even more if you go for the top of the line Cyberbeast.

The range-topping Cyberbeast start at $99,990, which is not cheap at all.

However, a Cybertruck owner explained, in detail, that the $100k price tag is just the start.

A Redditor who goes by Sandstorm4788 shared the receipt of his Cybertruck on the platform and the price tag is massive.

The ‘Foundation Series’ configuration (named after Asimov’s novel, ed.) adds $20,000 to the tab, and then you’ve a hefty destination fee of $1,995.

A destination fee is basically just the price carmakers charge for delivering the vehicle to the owner.

Then you’ve got various non-Tesla fees, including a hefty $11,621.83 sales tax.

It should be noted that these fees may be reduced drastically, or potentially disappear, for buyers in states that have lower taxes.

All in all, this buyer’s Cybertruck ended up costing a whopping $135,273.83.

You can buy a decent supercar in the second hand market for that.

Or, for those who only buy new cars, $135,000 is more than enough to buy a BMW 8 Series or even a Mercedes SL Roadster.
