Tesla's First SUV, Model X, Will Be Launched In 2015
|   Tuesday, June 24, 2014
The electric SUV from Tesla dubbed Model X will enter production in 2014 and will be available on the market in 2015. Tesla representatives said that first deliveries will take place in autumn, almost two years after the original deadline laid out for the electric model with all-wheel drive and side-opening doors' production.

The Americans from Tesla have managed a new "miracle" in the automotive world, after the retractable handles on the Model S, in the form of vertical opening doors that will go into production in a form almost like the one on the concept version.
Also, the same thing is expected to happen with the entire Model X design.

They promise these doors will be most practical like this. Tesla said these doors are the solution for easy access to the third row of seats, without passengers having to reach the second row seats when getting in and out of the vehicle.

The people from Tesla explain the delay by the perfectionist character of Elon Musk, who wished to equip the SUV with two engines, and keep the rear doors opening vertically to ease access for rear passengers. As the Americans say, the purpose of these doors is that passengers "step, not to get in the car" and this will be possible both in crowded parking lots as well as garages due to the special configuration of the respective doors.

Sports fans that require items carried on the roof, such as skis, snowboards, bicycles, and even kayaks will not be pleased with the Model X. This is because the doors would eliminate any possibility of mounting accessories, which would have drastically reduced the aerodynamic coefficient anyway.

Tesla announced acceleration from 0 to 98 km / h in less than five seconds for the Model X, and maneuverability to put to shame the fastest SUV in the world, and many sports cars too. Whether you have an engine or two, the Model X has all-wheel drive and 60 kWh or 85 kWh batteries, the latter being offered, most likely as standard equipment for the version with two engines.

Musk reminded his philosophy that the series version should be more interesting than the concepts which they are based on, and not the other way around.
"One of the things that drives me crazy about cars is that very often you'll see kind of a car or demo car and then the production version is some much worse version of that. At Tesla, whenever we show off a car as a demonstration item the production car will always be better. Sometimes that takes a lot of effort and it's very difficult and that is certainly the case with the Model X, but we have two choices which is either [to] produce an amazing car that I think is going to blow people away or produce a pretty good car" he said.

Also noteworthy is that after criticism of the Model S' interior sizes, Musk said that his designers would be paying "more attention to the needs of women".
