Update: Attributes Credit to electrek for original report

Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has quietly updated its website to remove most details regarding pricing and technical specifications of its Cybertruck. A recent report by Fred Lambert from electrek notes that the company's Cybertruck page has been edited to remove information, leaving a notice about production starting in 2022 along with the possibility of making a fully refundable $100 deposit to get your name on the waiting list. Tesla has not issued an explanation as to why the Cybertruck’s page has been simplified.

Previously the page mentioned the trucks price of $39,900 for the base model with rear-wheel drive. The specs also promised a 250-mile range, a 0 to 60 mph sprint in six and a half seconds, and a maximum speed of 110 mph.

The page also mentioned the midlevel $49,900 dual-motor AWD Cybertruck with 300+ miles of range, and a 4.5-second sprint and a top speed of 120 mph. Then there was the flagship Tri-Motor AWD priced at $69,900, promising more than 500 miles of range and a 2.9-second sprint, plus a maximum speed of 130 mph.

The updated page now only mentions some of the high-end specs, such as the 0 to 60 mph run achieved in “as little as 2.9 seconds” and a maximum towing capacity of more than 14,000 pounds. While Tesla used to say 500+ miles of range, the information has been updated to remove the plus at the end and now officially claims to do “up to 500 miles” between charges.
