Tesla Model X crossover revealed, 0-60mph in just 3.2 seconds

Tesla has unveiled the Model X electric crossover at a special event in its Freemont factory, California.

The Model X adopts a familiar design found on the Model S, featuring a sloping roofline, sleek profile and an active rear spoiler that result in a drag coefficient of 0.24.

the design highlight are the Falcon Wings doors that allow easy access to second and third row seats from any parking space. Yes even narrow parking spots as the doors are quite high tech compared to for example Mercedes SLS AMG.

The Model X also has the “largest windshield in production”, providing panoramic visibility to the driver and all passengers.

Interior can be opted with 7- or 6-seat layouts with two seat configurations (2+3+2 and 2+2+2).

The third row seats fold flat when not in use, while the second row seats are designed to maximize passenger comfort, legroom, under seat storage.

The dashboard also has a huge portrait-format screen, just like the Model S.

From the launch two versions will be offered. Both all-wheel drive systems with the 90D variant using two 259 horsepower (190 kW) motors, one for each axle, good for a 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds and an estimated range of 257 miles (414 km).

The range topping P90D version has one 259 hp (190 kW) motor and one 503 hp (370 kW) motor for a 0-60 mph time in 3.8 seconds and 3.2 second time when the optional Ludicrous Speed upgrade has been added.

The Model X also has air suspension, active safety system working with camera, radar and sonar systems and automatically applying brakes in an emergency even at highway speeds, pollution free climate system with bioweapon defense mode that creates “positive pressure inside the cabin to protect occupants.

Order books are now open with first cars being delivered as we speak. If you place an order now you should get your Model X next spring.
