Owning a Cybertruck, Tesla’s avant-garde electric pickup, comes with its share of excitement and, apparently, legal intricacies. Tesla has once again raised eyebrows by reintroducing a contract clause that could result in legal action against Cybertruck buyers – a move that has stirred controversy and sparked discussions within the Tesla community.
Tesla’s Legal Threat for Cybertruck Owners
Owning a Cybertruck comes with its share of excitement and, apparently, legal intricacies. Tesla again raises eyebrows by reintroducing a contract clause. This can result in legal action against Cybertruck buyers – a move that has stirred controversy. Exclusive to Cybertruck purchases, the clause found its way back into the public version of Tesla’s Motor Vehicle Order Agreement Terms & Conditions.
It states that buyers can face legal consequences, including lawsuits, if they attempt to resell the vehicle within the first year of ownership. Interestingly, this clause had initially made its appearance, attracting attention and subsequent deletion. However, recent reports suggest that customers who ordered the Foundation Series have encountered the clause once again in their order agreements.

Terms and Conditions
“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,” the clause said.
So, before attempting any resale within the initial year of delivery, buyers must offer the vehicle back to Tesla at a lower price. Only if Tesla opts not to repurchase the Cybertruck, the owner can proceeds with selling to a third party with Tesla’s “written consent.” To add a layer of complexity, if a buyer cancels a purchase after submitting a completed order, the order agreement stipulates that Tesla isn’t obligated to refund certain fees, including the $250 order fee and the previous $100 reservation fee. While the clause explicitly mentions the Foundation Series, it remains unclear whether this legal threat extends to all Cybertruck versions.
