Fresh details about the upcoming Tesla Model X electric SUV have emerged before the car is revealed in the second half of the year.
For power, the Tesla Model X will be available with the same range of batteries as the Model S. Consequently, the base Model X will utilise a 60kWh battery pack delivering a total of 380 hp and capable of powering the world first electric SUV for over 300 km. Elsewhere, the Tesla Model X will be available with the slightly larger 85 kWh battery delivering the same power but providing slightly improved range. Finally, the range-topping Tesla Model X P85D will be available with the same dual-motor system as found in the most expensive Model S variant. Consequently, it will produce 691 hp and have a range around 380 km.
Beyond the various powertrains, it has been confirmed that the Tesla Model X will feature seven seats and utilise the unique ‘falcon wing’ doors of the original Model X concept.
Following the car’s official debut later this year, customer deliveries of the Model X will commence in the first quarter of 2016.
