Tesla has stopped accepting orders for the Cybertruck electric pickup truck outside of North America, according to Tesla’s official website.

Last month, Tesla Cybertruck appeared at the Tesla Cyber Rodeo event, which was organized at the Tesla Texas Gigafactory in Austin. Earlier, Tesla said that the all-electric Cybertruck will be manufactured at a plant in Texas.
At the event, participants saw the Tesla Cybertruck with updated features such as the EV had no handles, it had a retractable rear window, side view cameras in plastic cladding around the front wheels along with a charging port on one of the wings. There was nothing noteworthy in the cabin of the Cybertruck prototype, and the yoke of the electric pickup had no airbags.
Earlier this year, the report described how Musk drove the car Tesla Prototype Cybertruck at the company’s Texas Gig Factory and around it. He said the experience was amazing. The head of Tesla shared his driving experience on Twitter.
