Buyers of Tesla’s Cybertruck now can’t sell the car within the first year of purchase unless the automaker gives them the appropriate permission. Otherwise, the company will sue them. This is stated in the updated Agreement on the Ordering of Cybertruck Vehicles, writes Engadget.

Tesla, in the terms, says it “may seek injunctive relief to prevent the transfer of ownership of the vehicle” if buyers violate the resale provision. Otherwise, the company has the right to claim compensation in the amount of $50,000 or in the amount of profit received for the resale of the car. The terms also say that resellers may be banned from buying Tesla cars.

Tesla says it may grant exemptions to some people who wish to sell their Cybertruck within the first year, but they must obtain written consent. If the company agrees, it will either buy the car back at a discounted price or allow the owner to resell the truck to a third party.

Recall that Elon Musk warned that the Cybertruck will not be profitable until 2025.
