Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has confirmed that the first Tesla Model X customer deliveries will start on Tuesday September 29. In typical Musk fashion, he revealed the news on his popular Twitter account.
Interestingly, Tesla has yet to fully detail the Model X with only leaked information about the range-topping Model X Signature Series available. It will be powered by a 90 kWh battery pack combining a 259 hp electric motor for the front wheels and a 503 hp electric motor at the rear. In standard guise, it will hit 96 km/h in just 3.8 seconds as well as a top speed of 250 km/h. When the Ludicrous Speed Upgrade is optioned, that 0-96 km/h sprint time will fall to a blistering 3.2 seconds with the quarter mile passing in just 11.7 seconds.
Also found on the Model X Signature Series is an Autopilot self-parking system and heated and cooled leather seats. It will start from $132,000.
From a visual standpoint, the production-spec Model X looks almost identical to the concept. It will be available with seven seats and includes the unique falcon doors from the concept.
