Kim Kardashian has been added to the expanding list of Tesla Cybertruck owners, joining a select group of celebrities who have chosen this innovative electric vehicle.

On her Instagram story, she showcased the electric pickup, calling herself a “Cool Carpool Mom.” This marks her second showcase of the vehicle this month. Prior, she displayed the Cybertruck en route to the Super Bowl.

Other Cybertruck Owners

Kim isn’t the only celebrity who owns the sleek electric vehicle that has now become a status symbol of sorts. Lady Gaga, Jay-Z & Beyoncé, and Pharrell Williams were also among the high-profile Tesla Cybertruck owners.

But the futuristic truck is not only attracting Hollywood’s elite. In November 2023, when the first batch of the long-awaited truck was released, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, Jay Leno, and a few others exclusively got their hands on the Cybertruck first.

What Makes the Cybertruck Stand Out in a Crowd of Electric Vehicles?

Launched with a price range of $60,990 to $99,990, the Cybertruck offers three trim levels. While not the priciest in Kardashian’s garage, its exclusivity stands out. Elon Musk has stated Tesla aims to sell 200,000 to 250,000 units annually until 2025.

So what makes it special?

The Cybertruck is built for any adventure. The innovative EV combines a durable exterior, spacious interior, and advanced technological capabilities. Its bare metal box-on-wheels design, unveiled by Elon Musk in 2019, has been both lauded and criticized for its departure from conventional pickup aesthetics.

The price range, starting at $79,990 for a dual-motor model and rising to $99,000 for a tri-motor version, places the Cybertruck within reach for affluent consumers seeking a blend of luxury and sustainability. Kardashian’s purchase aligns with her brand’s emphasis on these two elements.

Despite its hefty weight of around 6,600 pounds, the Cybertruck offers impressive performance. Tesla claims that it can tow up to 11,000 pounds and plans to introduce a single-motor rear-wheel drive variant in 2025. These features, combined with the vehicle’s electric powertrain, contribute to its broad appeal.

The Cybertruck’s armored glass and durable exterior have also drawn attention. A recent incident in Oakland, where a would-be thief failed to break into a Cybertruck, highlighted the vehicle’s robustness. This security aspect may appeal to celebrities who value privacy and safety.

The Cybertruck’s popularity among celebrities like Kardashian could potentially influence broader consumer trends. As more public figures embrace electric vehicles, it may encourage their fans and followers to consider similar choices, contributing to a shift towards more sustainable modes of transportation.
