Tesla Model X reservation holders have just been informed that their brand new SUV’s will begin production in early 2015.
In the email, Tesla also confirmed the futuristic-looking gull wing door design:
“We’re pleased to confirm that the falcon wing doors will be a defining feature of this exceptional car. Not only do these doors look amazing, but they also make getting in and out of the Model X so much easier than would a conventional front-hinged door. You can even do it standing up.”
While some other car manufacturers are quite often guilty of creating outlandish designs with extra features in their concept models, then under-delivering on production models – Tesla has the history of delivering the goods on their released product. This has been shown previously with their Tesla Model S and now with their Model X’s featured gull wing doors.
Tesla went on to explain:
“We can confirm that all-wheel drive will come standard for Model X, and you’ll have the option to add a third row of seats to carry more passengers. You’ll also be able to fold down the second and third rows to create a flat platform for storage. When it comes to charging and long distance drives, Model X will be able to take full advantage of our rapidly growing Supercharger network.”
These features all make for quite an exceptional fully electric automobile.
Unfortunately there is no confirmed shipment date for the final product but Tesla confirming there will be more information released in the coming months.
