“Exceeds the promises made when we first showed the concept.”
The Tesla Model X, the company’s first crossover and the newest addition to its all-electric family, will enter production in late 2014 and meet its first customers early the following year. In an email to preorder customers, the company promised that its delayed CUV – originally slated for production in 2013 – "will be a production car that exceeds the promises made when we first showed the concept." Moreover, it will keep the falcon-wing doors displayed on the original concept.
Also in the email, Tesla told its customers to expect an optional third row of seats and standard all-wheel drive, in addition to increased functionality and practicality. With the delivery date just around the corner, stay tuned for additional details and an official debut in the coming months.
