The move is set to help flyers get reasonably-priced tickets for emergency travel. Airlines generally sell last-minute ticket at very high prices.

“Generally, an emergency leads to the last-minute demand. Such a traveller is faced with very high ticket prices. So, for the domestic sector, the national carrier has decided to make a “very last moment inventory” of available seats within 3 hours of departure. These would be sold at a hefty discount, normally exceeding 40 per cent of the selling price,” Air India said in a statement.

Tesla bags 200,000 orders for its futuristic ”Cybertruck”

New Delhi: Elon Musk is back with a bang with his all-new “Cybertruck”. Irrespective of the controversies the all-new Tesla Cybertruck has gathered, it is one of the most radical wheels that has gone on sale in recent times and is becoming quite popular by the day.

Elon Musk took to Twitter to share that Tesla has already received 200k orders since the launch of the “Cybertruck” which was actually 3 days ago(22 November).

Tesla Cybertruck’s production is expected to begin in late 2020. The electric pickup truck is available in three trims — single motor RWD with a range of over 250 miles, dual-motor AWD with a range of more than 300 miles and tri-motor AWD with a range in the north of 500 miles.

The single motor RWD variant of the Cybertruck can go from 0 to 60 mph in below 6.5 seconds and has a towing capacity of over 7,500 pounds, while the dual-motor AWD trim can make 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds and boasts of a towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds. Tesla claims that the tri-motor AWD variant of the vehicle is good for 0-60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds and gets a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds.

Given its relative performance and price, the Cybertruck could be a massive success for Tesla as it enters into the largest segment in the US market. Almost three million pickups were sold to consumers in 2018. If Tesla can carve off a tiny sliver of that, it’ll go a long way toward taking Tesla’s annual sales to the next level.
