The Tesla Model X Is The Only Car In That Really Feels It s From The Future

There’s a number of new cars at the Detroit that I like — I think did a fine job with the new ‘Vette we’ve been carefully and that Audi RS7 is really But the only one I sat in and genuinely felt I was in something really new and different was the Model X.

Tesla certainly has share of issues. not the least of is the still mostly unanswered of can they really make cars in quantity. Also, the X I saw here isn’t truly a model. It’s not really a or a show car, either.

people told me it’s a prototype which they means that it represents the final production design actually be. Interior materials and a of details may change, but I was assured the fundamental body design and will remain.

Based on their (currently, few) production Model S I feel reasonably confident the materials and fit and finish will be to what I saw at the show, though not in white. So, let’s give the benefit of the doubt that build something close to this looks and feels and I’ll tell you why you should

First and most obviously, the car has doors. And I think this is one of the very few examples of gullwing-type being used on a car other a high-performance car, and for a utilitarian Well, if you don’t count you get laid as utilitarian.

Technically, calls these doors wing and they differ traditional gullwings in that hinged in the middle as well, allows them to open demanding almost any space at all on the of the car. Tesla’s PR people to me that these doors can in a smaller area than a sliding door. That’s impressive and actually useful.

Plus, the size of the opening of the is remarkable. When open, the in the side of your car is like of a door and a T-top combined; got plenty of baby-shoving-in-cars experience, and would make loading a toddler-sized coked-up octopus There’s so much open into the Model X, and that’s the middle row of seats up, even.

brings up another point: may see the Model X as a sort of SUV, but closer to a short van with a It seats seven in three and the middle row can fold onto the to create a sort of ottoman/low surface. With that (it was locked on the car we saw here, but I was shown how it work) you’d have a flexible and useful interior to be in.

It would solve many of my little-van desires in how it could act as a little room, as well as flexible enough to seat people and their luggage.

I’m sort of a space-utilization when it comes to cars, and I can get as about a car that uses really well as I can about a car goes really fast. The X feels like a modern of one of my all-time space-utilization heroes, the rear-engine wagon. Cars the Volkswagen Type III and IV. the Corvair the Fiat 500 Giardiniera. and a few select

These cars all had good their size) cargo in the traditional wagon area in the and a trunk up front.

The Model X in perfectly, with good room at the rear, and a deep (sorry, Tesla, I’m not it a goddamn frunk. Not even if you me a frookie ) in front. This is possible here thanks to the use of the S platform, which is like a big of batteries and motor.

In the Model X’s case, added an electric motor to the axle to supplement the rear-axle 362 or 410 HP motor, giving more and AWD. Tesla says the X will get to 60 in five seconds this setup, which great.

Though to be honest, so taken by the Model X body I’d be interested in this car say a flat-four Subaru engine under the back seat, in of the rear axle, replacing the with a gas tank and the necessary hardware. That would be of Tesla’s fundamental goals, but it still be a remarkable MPV-type car to the public.

Of course, Tesla in their press conference their main goal — above actually making — is to accelerate the adoption of electric So they’re not going to go that But, if Subaru or all those (one) companies that cars with flat (maybe one that begins P?) want to steal this I’d be all over that.

Two normal doors, two gullwing two trunks, van-like interior awd, sleek exterior world-of-tomorrow dashboard and electronics, and a range of up to 265 miles — what’s not to here? They stated like to make it available for $30,000 as well. I’m on the fence about all-touchscreen but it’s hard to deny it look cool and appears to be well-thought out.

I guess the rub is the uncertainty if it’ll ever It certainly could, and the Model S or failure will be a big indicator how it actually is. I hope so.

Perhaps of my ardor is the result of being a man offspring, and the associated practicalities entails. Maybe that’s why is essentially a minivan is so interesting to me. It be my geeky love of maximized it could be all the fumes from plastics getting me high.

I don’t know.

What I do is that sitting in the Model X was the time 2013 actually like the future to me. And the future pretty good.
