Tesla Model X electric crossover coming in 2014
Tesla has announced the Model X, an all-electric crossover vehicle that it says will be put into production by 2014. Key features include rear Falcon Wing doors, which fold out Delorean-style (but how practical are Falcon doors inside a parking garage), and an average of 300 miles per charge. The plug-in CUV is based on the same platform as the Model S sedan, which also has yet to see the light of day, but should go into production this summer.
Also, you get double your storage space since there is no physical motor that would take up its normal room. Tesla says the Model X will be available in both rear- and four-wheel drive, the latter of which will have two independent electric motors. If you find yourself in the market for a new SUV in a couple of years and want to save a few MPGs look no further; just be ready to dish out some cash, as the Model X should start at around $50,000 for the base package, and that can quickly climb up to near $90,000 with all the options and add-ons.
