Tesla had showcased the Model X at various Auto Shows over the last two years. Now, the production version of the Tesla Model X has been caught on camera during test near the company’s factory in California. As can be seen in the images, the all-electric crossover appears to be in its final stages of development with only the headlights and taillights being covered with black camouflage. The windows have also been taped for some reason. The Tesla Model X will be manufactured in Fremont, California and priced just about the same as the Model S.
The Model X is likely to debut before the end of the year, offering “the space and functionality of a sport utility vehicle”, combined with “seating for seven adults and the uncompromised performance of an electric car”. Similar to the Model S, the Model X will also be available with the same battery options implying there will be a 60 kWh and 85 kWh versions with 380 HP and a top-of-the-line 85 kWh Performance producing a whopping 691 HP.
Riding on the Model S platform, the Model X features a flat battery pack mounted under the floorpan which helps maximize interior room as the cabin can accommodate seven adults in three rows. The highlight of the car will be its rear gullwing / falcon doors providing an easy access inside. Tesla says, the falcon wing doors allow easy access to the third row seat, even from the narrowest of parking spaces.
