Tesla Model X is an all-electric crossover from Tesla Motors, which was first demonstrated back in February 2012. In Tesla’s lineup, the Model X became the third model, joining the roadster and sedan.
The release of the new Tesla Model X started in September 2015 (although it was originally expected to start at the end of 2013). It’s nice that the serial version of the electric car, as originally promised, has retained the unusual doors that open upwards.

Unlike the doors of the “gull wing” type, the version presented by Tesla is called “falcon wings”. Structurally, they consist of several sections, which allows you to easily open doors in a narrow space, be it a parking lot or a garage.
Initially, only two versions of the Tesla Model X were available to buyers – an all-wheel drive 90D with two 259-horsepower electric motors (one for each axle) and an all-wheel drive “charged” version of the P90D.
The latter is driven by electric motors with a capacity of 259 hp. front and 503 hp. – behind. They are powered by a set of 90 kWh lithium-ion batteries and provide the top crossover with a 0-100 sprint in 3.8 seconds (or 3.2 seconds with the optional Ludicrous Mode package). The initial version does this in 4.8 seconds.
The maximum speed of the most powerful version of Tesla Model X is 250 km / h, and the power reserve with fully charged batteries is declared at 400 kilometers (the 90D version is able to overcome up to 411 km without recharging). The high mileage became possible not least due to the good aerodynamics of the car – the drag coefficient here is 0.24.
It is also worth noting that, thanks to the lack of internal combustion engines and compact batteries, the Tesla Modex X has two luggage compartments. And the seven-seater interior of the crossover boasts a rather futuristic design, where the role of the center console is played by a large 17-inch touch screen.
The start of sales of the novelty has already been repeatedly postponed, as a result, in September 2015, an online configurator was launched for those who made an advance payment for the novelty. Initially, you can purchase only the top-end version of Tesla Model X in the Signature performance, for which they ask from 132,000 to 144,000 dollars.

There is an automatic parking system, smart air suspension that can navigate by GPS, ventilation and seat heating, and the third-row seats are individually adjustable and can be folded to form a flat floor.
For a surcharge, a towbar and a system for towing a trailer weighing up to 2.3 tons are available, plus a winter package that includes three-zone climate control, as well as heated steering wheel, windshield wipers and a washer fluid reservoir. The first customers received their electric crossovers at the beginning of 2016. The base price of the Tesla Model X 75D is $ 84,200.
