UAE developer orders Tesla Cybertrucks for Dubai site visits
UAE-based Azizi Developments has announced that it has placed an order for 10 of Tesla's new Cybertrucks which it plans to use to enhance customers' pre-sales site visits.
In line with its commitment to clean and renewable energy, Azizi said it plans to exclusively use electric vehicles for its customer site visits.
Farhad Azizi, CEO of Azizi Developments, said: "We are excited about this pre-order, with it underlining our commitment to being a sustainable, environmentally conscious developer that has its customers' best interest at heart. We are looking forward to modernise our fleet with Tesla's Cybertrucks.”
He did not give a size for the investment in the Cybertrucks but they carry a starting price of nearly $40,000 each.
On Tuesday, Dubai Police said it would be adding the Cybertruck to its fleet of vehicles.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Monday that the car which was revealed last week had already received 200,000 orders despite its embarrassing debut when its “bulletproof” windows shattered during a showcase of its alleged durability.
The vehicle looks like a metallic trapezoid and its exterior is made from newly developed stainless steel, the same metal kind that's used for SpaceX rockets, according to Musk.
He also claimed the Cybertruck is more capable of towing and hauling than a Ford F-150, with the ability to tow up to 14,000 pounds, and is a better sports car than the Porsche 911.
Azizi Developments currently has 54 ongoing projects that are to be delivered between 2019 and 2023, and an additional 130 projects in planning, worth several billion dollars, that are projected to be delivered between 2023 and 2025.
