You'll never believe what's in the small print when you buy a Cybertruck -

Some rich people make a sport of it: buying very expensive and exclusive cars and then reselling them at a huge profit. A car like the upcoming Cybertruck would be ideal for this, but Tesla is putting a stop to this with a special clause.

The first deliveries of the will finally take place at the end of this month Tesla Cybertruck place. Due to the enormous demand and the limited initial production run, the EV was very interesting for investors who quickly reserved a production site.

But anyone who thinks they can now resell the hyped electric pick-up truck at a profit will be in for a rude awakening. The Americans have them Terms and Conditions updated. The updated document contains a new clause that should make life difficult for eager investors.

Like snow in the sun

The new terms of purchase now state: “For Cybertruck Only: You understand and acknowledge that the Cybertruck will be released in limited quantities. You agree that you will not sell the vehicle within the first year of the delivery date of your vehicle.”

If customers do sell their Cybertruck within a year, Tesla can put a stop to the transfer or demand compensation of as much as $50,000. In this way, any profits made by resellers disappear like snow in the sun.


If there is a good reason to sell your Cybertruck within a year due to unforeseen circumstances, Tesla has an exception arrangement. The car manufacturer led by Elon Musk expects to be informed in writing of this situation and then demand the first option to buy back the car.

You don't have to use your best negotiating techniques, because the price is fixed. In this case, Tesla pays the purchase price minus 0.25 dollars (0.23 euros) per mile driven (approximately 1.6 kilometers), and all costs to fully complete the car, both technically and cosmetically.

Only if Tesla does not want to buy back the Cybertruck for some reason can it be sold privately by the owner.

Not the first time

Tesla is not the first car brand to draw up such an arrangement with its buyers. Contracts like this are not rare in the world of exclusive sports cars. For example, Ford has established similar rules when purchasing the very exclusive Ford GT. And also with early copies of the Ford F-150 Lightning sales restrictions were imposed on customers.
