Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk announced the upcoming Model X will be offered exclusively with an all-wheel drive arrangement.

Even though on Tesla's website the Model X is listed with RWD and AWD options, Elon Musk declared recently at a store opening in London the car "will only be offered as all-wheel-drive. So it'll be dual-motor all-wheel drive." In addition, he also announced the Model X's starting price will be "slightly higher" in comparison to the Model S. Tesla's official website lists two battery options: 60 kWh and 85 kWh.

We remind you Tesla's initial plans were to kick off production towards the end of this year but it will commence in late 2014 after the automaker decided to start paying back the 465M USD loan taken from the U.S. Energy Department.

In related news, on the same occasion Elon Musk said deliveries of the first right-hand drive Model S units will start probably in March and the first car will be delivered by Elon Musk himself to a "high-profile" customer.
