I don’t think youmre looking at this correctly.That works out to over 30% increase from initial pricing.
We all know what happened when Rivian increased its price for reservation holders and you really can't claim it is due to inflation now as the price of raw materials has come down.
With demand for the S and X less than 100 k per year, I don't know how many CTs will sell at this price after the initial hype is over.
first, assume the $90K comment was about the truck sitting in front of them - a tri motor ‘Cyber-beast’
like with the Model S to the MS Plaid, the Cyber-beast can be a price-limited/exclusive variant for the exclusivity-needy.
And this Cyber-beast variant was never described in 2019, so there is no available price comparison to which arrive at a “+30%” deduction
Assuming this$90k comment is roughly accurate, the question that is relevant to those interested in a ‘base’ model CyberTruck is this: how much cheaper will the base model be, from a marketing/segmenting price perspective
The Model S Plaid when first released was $40K more than the base Model S.
So even if the Cyberbeast is $90k, the base model could be significantly less
