Receipt showing total cost of Cybertruck beast has left people calling the purchase ‘an awful financial decision’

Receipt showing total cost of Cybertruck beast has left people calling the purchase ‘an awful financial decision’

You'd have to have a whole lot of money saved up if you wanted to buy a Cyberbeast.

Another day, another viral Cybertruck post.

Elon Musk's electric pickups haven't even been on the road a month, but they've managed to dominate news headlines and social media.

One of the biggest talking points around the Cybertruck is its price.

When the trucks were first delivered to customers at the end of November, Tesla said there would be three models available. According to the company, a rear-wheel-drive version would start at an estimated $60,990 (£48,200), and the high-end Cyberbeast might set you back around $99,990 (£79,000).

Compare that with what Tesla originally said back in 2019 - that the base model would start at $39,900 (£31,500), while the tri-motor, long-range model would be $69,900 (£55,200).

Now, a full bill for the Cyberbeast is going viral on Reddit.

User sandstorm4788 posted it on the subreddit r/cybertruck with the caption: 'How dumb of a financial decision is this.'

The bill shows the price of the Cyberbeast clocking in at an already eye-watering $99,990 (£79,000) - but there's a whole lot more charges on top of that.

The bill suggests an extra $20,000 (£16,000) was charged to be part of the foundation series - meaning the buyer would be one of the first to snag a Cybertruck - as well as a 'destination fee' of $1,995 (£1,570) - essentially the charge of transporting the truck from the factory to your location.

Then there's the order fee of $250 (£200), bringing the bill up to a grand total of $122,235 (£96,030) for the car.

But that's not even all - with the non-Tesla fees of things like sales tax and tire fees, the total clocks in at $135,273.83 (£106,275.54).

Remember this is the top of the line model, with all kinds of flashy features Tesla touts - like being able to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.6 seconds, an 'ultra-hard stainless steel exoskeleton' and 'shatter-resistant Armor Glass'.

But regardless, people are still losing their minds in the comments.

"Not only is it very expensive, but it will likely not retain its value very well," one person said, while another added: "Incredibly dumb."

But a lot of others were a bit more balanced, saying things like: "Oh it's an awful financial decision, any new vehicle is. But if you can comfortably afford it then go for it and enjoy!" And: "That's a lot of money to beta test a car my friend. But if you're loaded, go for it."

The original Redditor seems pretty set on their decision, and said in the comments: "I’m sure this ain’t the best thing to put my money towards. But I just want that dream truck after working my ass off and waiting 4 years."
