Tesla Motors has recently launched a cheaper version of their latest Model X SUV. The new Model X 70D has been priced from just $80,000 – much lower than the $132,000 starting price of the range topping Model X 90D.
Unlike the 90D, which gets a 90-kWh battery, the 70D will get a 70-kWh unit and will only cost $81,200, including shipping. This means it will have a range of 220 miles, with a 0 to 60 mph of 6.0 seconds. By comparison, the 90D has a range of 257 miles and can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds with the Ludicrous mode.
It’s worth pointing out that the $80,000 base price is for the five-seat Model X 70D. If one wants a six-seat configuration, they will have to spend another $3,000, while a seven-seat configuration will cost an extra $4,000. The Autopilot driving feature will mean another $2,500, while other upgrades include a $750 towing package, a $1,000 cold weather package, a $2,500 premium audio system and $2,500 for an adjustable air suspension. Thus, the price could go up to around $100,000 with all the options.
