Not too long ago, Tesla unveiled the the Model X, the company’s first crossover – it’s basically a big, seven seater cross over with gull-wing style doors. When it was announced we had no clue on what the price would be, shortly after many people assumed that the price would be in the £100,000 range but as it turns out the Model X will start at $80,000/£53,112 and for that you get the Model X 70D which can last 220 miles on one charge and accelerate from 0-60 in 6 seconds.
The other models available are the 90D and P90D both have a larger 90-kWh battery and can last up to 250 miles on one charge, the 90D can do 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and the P90D is close to Model S speeds, doing 0-60 in just 3.8 seconds.
The list of optional extras is costly, the standard car comes with just five seats, but for $3,000 you can upgrade to six and for $4,000 you can upgrade to 7 seats. The infamous Autopilot system is a $2,500 option and a basic towing package will cost you $750.
Orders are now being accepted for he Tesla Model X, deliveries for the P90D will roll of the factory floor first, with deliveries scheduled for early 2016 then the 90D and 70D will be arriving with customers later next year.
