US: Tesla Model X pricing starting at $80,000 image

If you got scared by the ridiculous pricing of the Model X Signature Series crossover utility vehicle, which didn’t even include the “Ludicrous Mode” at $132,000, no need to worry anymore.

That’s because the luxury electric auto manufacturer headquartered in California has recently confirmed the rumored pricing details that have been doing the rounds across the Internet. To date the company only lets you see on its website the P90D performance variant and 90D versions, though configuration details have been posted on Tesla’s forums and we can see there the base version has also become available now. The starting price for the 70D version is of $80,000 – without delivery charges or any federal or local tax credit. For the 80 grand you’ll be able to get a Model X 70D with an estimated range of 220 miles, while 60 mph will be reached in a still cool six seconds, with a maximum speed of 140 mph. Going over to the 90D you’ll get a higher autonomy of 257 miles and a zero to 60 mph time of 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 155 mph. Jump over to the P90D and you still get 250 miles but with the sprint time now down to 3.8 seconds (3.2 in Ludicrous Mode) and the same top speed of 155 mph. You can also opt in for a six-seating configuration for an extra $3,000, and the full seven-seat will add $4,000.

Tesla has been hinting at the 80,000 dollar pricing for quite some time now, as chief executive officer Elon Musk himself pointed out on occasions the Model X will be priced $5,000 more than a comparable Model S sedan, which has a starting price point of exactly $75,000.
