Tesla CEO Elon Musk suggested late Tuesday that his company had now received 250,000 pre-orders for the Cybertruck, its “Blade Runner”-inspired electric pickup.
The billionaire tweeted “250k,” indicating — based on his previous Twitter posts — that this was the number of “orders” the firm had collected from prospective customers to date.

According to the company, these pre-orders aren’t actually considered deposits for the vehicle. The Tesla chief has gotten into hot water over his use of Twitter in the past.
