Tesla slipped the resell clause back into the Cybertruck contract

Tesla thought they were slick!

I’m a silly goose. I should know by now that when a person or company tells you who they really are, I should believe them. Even when they eventually do the right thing, it shouldn’t change your perception. And, dagnabbit! Tesla got me again! Curses!

While I never believed that Tesla would actually do the right thing altruistically, I honestly didn’t think they’d be this slimy.

Several purchasers of the Cybertruck, the worse than SNES graphics electric truck from Tesla, noticed something odd in their contracts after placing their orders. What they found was a reseller’s clause that was taken out about a month ago. This was pointed out by those who purchased the “Foundation Series” Cybertruck.

The clause in question states that buyers of the vehicle have to offer it back to Tesla at a reduced price prior to selling it within a year of delivery. The owner can only resell it if Tesla refuses and has issued “written consent”.

You agree that in the event you breach this provision, or Tesla has reasonable belief that you are about to breach this provision, Tesla may seek injunctive relief to prevent the transfer of title of the Vehicle or demand liquidated damages from you in the amount of $50,000 or the value received as consideration for the sale or transfer, whichever is greater. Tesla may also refuse to sell you any future vehicles.”

Tesla Resale Clause

So much for having faith in your vehicle. I haven’t seen anything as obnoxious since the H2 Hummer. No, wait! I have!

There was The Marauder. Then again, when I watch the video below, I’d still take that over the Cybertruck.

When’s that electric Hummer coming out again?
