Tesla Model X Launching This Month

2016 Tesla Model X with Falcon Wings2016 Tesla Model X with Falcon Wings

If you are one of the fortunate few that already reserved your Tesla Model X, you will soon have it as the much anticipated launch of the much anticipated crossover all-electric SUV is just around the corner. Tesla promises this will be the fastest, and safest compact sport utility ever.

Floor mounting the battery provides a low center of gravity to prevent rollovers and the front trunk was designed to act as a large crumple zone to absorb impact in head-on collisions.  The structure of the battery also offers side impact protection and Tesla anticipates that when the vehicle is tested by the NTSA it will be the first vehicle of its kind to receive top marks in all categories.

The Model X was designed for efficiency with a very low drag coefficient allowing it to have a 250 mile range on a single charge. The X also puts the “Sport” in sport utility with the ability to go from zero to 60 in just 3.2 seconds (with Ludicrous Speed Upgrade), which makes it just ever-so-slightly slower than some of the world’s most powerful supercars. Seating for seven with fold flat rear seats and front and back cargo holds makes the Model X very versatile for nearly any driving need and the vehicle is very well equipped with many features not found elsewhere.

One unique feature is the “falcon wings” on the rear passenger compartment. Requiring only one foot of clearance to open these doors allow easy access in even the tightest of parking spaces. Automatic sensors adjust the opening arc in tight spaces, like your garage.

Additional specifications can be found on Tesla’s web site. The only drawback is if you haven’t already placed an order you will be waiting until the end of 2016 for delivery. If you don’t want to wait that long AutoBuying101.com can help you find the best deals on any new automobile and compare dealer quotes. You might find a vehicle that fits your needs even better or is at least more affordable.
