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.

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.
