I hadn't thought about the business market that how a durable vehicle could be a good investment. Then again, the load capacity would probably be as important if not more than that.

The Cybertruck will have 3,500 pounds of payload capacity and 100 square feet of exterior storage (subject to change at this point, as it's only slightly better than a concept vehicle at this point...)  For comparison the F150 is 1,125 to 2,309 depending on model.

I wonder what it does to range if it's loaded with at least 1000 pounds and going slightly uphill.

Here’s the breakdown of paid reservations after the first day:

  • Tesla Cybertruck RWD: 24,820 reservations (worth ~$1 billion before options)
  • Tesla Cybertruck Dual Motor AWD: 61,320 reservations (worth ~$3 billion before options)
  • Tesla Cybertruck Tri Motor AWD: 59,860 reservations (worth ~$4.2 billion before options)

(Which is similar in total to model 3 day one reservations (which had a $1,000 reserve fee instead of $100).
