Another Tesla vehicle could be the perfect accessory for your new Cybertruck

Tesla is offering a $1,000 discount to Cybertruck reservation holders who place an order or lease for another model. The new discount does raise a few questions in the wake of the Cybertruck Delivery Event. Why would someone purchasing a Cybertruck want to buy another vehicle immediately?

Those holding reservations might not care about numbers on spreadsheets and the company’s bottom line. Tesla fans could grow frustrated by being encouraged to spend even more money while waiting for the transformational electric pickup they were promised.
