New details are starting to emerge about the Tesla Model X, expected to be unveiled this year.
The Californian EV producer explains the vehicle will “combine the space and functionality of a sport utility vehicle with seating for seven adults and the uncompromised performance of an electric car”. It has confirmed the production model will feature the concept’s falcon wing doors, “allowing easy access to the third row seat, even from the narrowest of parking spaces”.
The Model X will be offered with the same battery options as the Model S. The entry-level model will be equipped with a 60 kWh-battery and will have 380 HP (280 kW), while the 85 kWh-version will offer the same power with higher range. The range-topping 85 kWh Performance will feature a 691 HP (508 kW) Dual Motor All Wheel Drive system with a range of about 380 km (235 miles).
Tesla has also announced deliveries will start in early 2016 for new reservations.
