It can seat seven and get to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds.
We’re pretty sure this wasn’t supposed to happen like this, but pictures of the production Tesla Model X have surfaced on the Internet through the automaker’s private configurator for Signature reservation holders. Apparently, there are two levels of reservation for the upcoming Model X: one for the regular model that requires a $5,000 deposit and another with a $40,000 deposit for the limited Signature model. These pictures appear to keep reservation holders’ interest intact, but we're looking forward to getting the full details on the Model X range soon.
The Model X seen in the screenshots is the range-topping “Signature Series” that will set interested buyers back $132,000 without the $7,500 Federal tax credit. The vehicle comes with a 90kWh battery pack and the same luxurious features that the Tesla Model S is heralded for. The Signature series also comes with Falcon Wing rear doors that have “built in sensors” to prevent users from hitting them on low ceilings. According to the specs, the Model X Signature will have a 259 hp front and 503 hp rear electric motors for a total range of 240 miles, and a zero to 60 mph of 3.8 seconds. There are a lot of available options on the vehicle, but the most interesting one is the “Ludicrous Speed Upgrade” that cuts the zero to 60 mph down to 3.2 seconds.
