This comes from Elon and he’s talking about the X. He is right, the Model X is not blah. and why. Find out about the model debuted on February 2012 and about BlueStar, plan for a family sized car that’s affordable.

Tesla in an place in the automotive market: The Silicone Valley company has known for its internal squabbles, yet managed to succeed where so new automakers have failed. former GM head Bob Lutz that he was inspired to start the project by the resounding success of Roadster. With the Model S being prepped for production, the step for the company will be newly revealed crossover, the X.

Part of Tesla’s trickle-down to vehicle production, the X is the next toward paying off the development of the EV technology, allowing for cheaper The eventual goal is the BlueStar, an family car due to hit the market in 2015.

first product was the Roadster, a Elise-based sports car that its traditional four cylinder for an motor and over 6,800 Lithium Ion laptop cells. the mix of parts and the newness of the company a kit car level of quality, critics amazed that the Roadster and drove like a regular vehicle. Sales were despite its $100,000-$120,000 retail ending only because stopped production of the Elise.

Roadsters were built its four year run.

The next car is the Model S luxury due to enter production this The laptop cells are gone, by battery packs co-developed Panasonic specifically for EV use. an electric motor producing 362 hp and 306 of torque, the car can reach 60 mph in 5.6 seconds: about three tenths of a faster than a Mercedes

A four inch thick pack below the seats and a no bigger than a traditional keep the center of gravity low to provide handling that far what would be expected its conventional suspension. With an starting at around $57,000, the car is a entry into the segment, many drivers will spend an extra $20,000 to get the battery pack upgraded to an 80 kW boosting range from 160 to 300 per charge.

The next step is the Model X. Hints about the came via rumors of government asking Tesla to build an SUV for service duties. A recent with Toyota to build RAV4s suggested the X may share parts with the Japanese in an attempt to build a small crossover. However, when the was finally revealed, it turned out to be else entirely: It’s not an electric-powered crossover, it’s an new type of vehicle that only be built using an platform.

The prototype looks like the S’s styling has been over a crossover coupe. while the Acura MDX and BMW X6 are well for their lack of space, the tall stature and low-mounted gives the vehicle space in line with a minivan. At the release, Musk emphasized the vehicle holds seven plus cargo: His own Audi Q7 was as a benchmark, and the X’s front alone holds as much as the does when filled passengers.

The X will have all wheel drive courtesy of two motors, one powering each Although there was no word on the system will be able to torque between the left and sides of the vehicle like top-end AWD systems, the near-instantaneous of the electric motors should excellent traction in bad weather. both motors installed, mph will take just 4.4 pulling ahead of the segment-leading ML63 AMG.

A performance version is in the works will be even faster.

testers say the Model X drives exactly like the Model S, the sluggish responses and body normally associated with an Again, the electric design is as the underseat battery pack and motors give the vehicle a low center of gravity for a crossover.

60% of the X’s parts are shared the Model S, including the battery Total weight is about 10% than the S, which Musk will equate to a 10% reduction in — around 200-210 per charge with the 60 kWh battery or 260-270 miles when with the 85 kWh pack. MSRP start at $57,400, with versions reaching $90,000.

Like the S, the Model X should well-equipped with the large difference linked directly to the size. All models should be for a $7,500 federal tax credit.

A of Model X’s should hit the sometime in 2013, with production starting the following With amazing acceleration and a amount of interior room, the X will be a serious competitor in the even without its green
