Having heard about Tesla Motors, not to worry we have your back, Tesla according to Wikipedia “Tesla Motors, Inc. is an American automotive and energy storage company that designs, manufactures, and sells electric cars, electric vehicle power train components, and battery products“ So today, We’re having the first taste of pricing and specs for the Model X, Tesla Motors first crossover utility vehicle.
The Model X Signature edition will come with a 90 kilowatt-hour battery, an EPA estimated range of 240 miles on one charge, get to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, and boast a top speed of 155 mph. The news was first reported by Inside EVs, Forbes and Bloomberg. The $132,000 price tag is before the federal tax credit or state or local incentives.
A Tesla spokesperson confirmed the pricing in an email. But the spokesperson added that there has been “some confusion” because that Signature Model X “is a limited edition release with fully spec’ed options. The limited edition Model S Signature series went for a similar price.”
“The Model X options and prices will be comparable to current Model S,” the spokesperson said.
A $10,000 Ludicrous Mode speed upgrade drops the 0-60 to 3.2 seconds.
The Model X information is not available publicly on Tesla’s Model X page. But those with a reservation for the Signature Series are getting invitations from Tesla to spec them out. A Signature Model X requires a $40,000 deposit. That compares to a $5,000 security for a standard X, as pointed out by Inside EVs.
Tesla has said that deliveries of the X will begin by the end of September.
