3,878 Trucks Sold In 4 Months

Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla isn’t exactly known for making it easy for people to keep track of what’s going on with the company. That includes sales figures for individual vehicles as the company has a habit of bundling everything together rather than showing the success of one specific vehicle, such as the Tesla Cybertruck.

However, things are made significantly easier when safety becomes an issue, and the government gets involved. And currently, there’s an NHTSA recall on what’s believed to be every Tesla Cybertruck built so far. With this recall, Tesla revealed that it had delivered 3,878 electric trucks since December of last year up to April 4, 2024. And that number should spook some competitors.

Tesla Cybertruck Sales vs Competition

Sure, that’s a small number when compared to other truck sales in the U.S. However, taking a gander at the GMC Hummer EV sales, we can see that it’s undoubtedly a success against some of the competition. In 2023, GMC sold 3,260 Hummer EVs in total, which means Tesla sold more Cybertrucks in 4 months than GMC sold Hummer EVs in an entire year. Even though Hummer EV sales are up in the first quarter of this year, with 1,688 units sold through the end of March, the Cybertruck is very clearly eating the Hummer’s lunch. Morever, the Cybertruck was able to eclipse the Rivian R1T from December 2023 to March 2024, as well. There’s still plenty of ground to cover before the Cybertruck catches up to the Ford F-150 Lightning, however, which tallied 7,743 deliveries in Q1 2024.


So what’s the problem with the Cybertruck? Soap. Workers used the substance to make it easier to install the truck’s pedal, but it also made the component more prone to dislodging. In other words, it’s the Boeing 737 MAX of trucks. Tesla has already implemented a fix on trucks built after April 17, so if you own a vehicle that was delivered before then, you might want to get the recall checked out before you find yourself with an accelerator stuck in the “go” position.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
