A revised version of the Tesla Model X has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
According to the car manufacturer, the revised version of the Tesla Model X is an almost ready production version of the electric SUV which should get the green lights later on this year in order to become ready to its future customers in 2014. The Tesla Model X will be assembled in Fremont, California, and its price list should be similar to the Model S. The “green” SUV unveiled in Detroit is coming with a white finish for the body and with new alloy wheels.
The Tesla Model X is based on the same platform as the Model S and its battery pack is mounted under the floor, maximizing the room in the cabin which can accommodate up to seven adults in the three rows of seats. Access in the cabin is made easily thanks to the rear gullwing doors. The Tesla Model X will get a 60 kWh or an 85 kWh battery and the range should be similar to the one on the Model S. 500 orders for the Tesla Model X have already been received and the company is planning to sell 10,000 – 15,000 units annually.
