The concept of Tesla’s Model X was presented to the audience in 2012 and the company is finally ready to release a production car for the 2016 model year. The new 2016 Tesla Model X was scheduled to go on sale in 2014, but the company focused on selling Model S vehicles. The Model X is developed on the Model S’s platform so don’t be surprised if the Model X looks similar as the Model S. It will be Tesla’s very first SUV model. We know that you eagerly wait to hear more exact details, so let’s begin.
Tesla Model X Exterior
Of course, the new look of the Model X found inspiration in the concept. Its front section design definitely looks very similar to the Model S sedan. Other interesting details on the newcomer are Model X’s falcon wing doors that are perfect for those customers who seek something functionally funky in their SUV model. Another thing that makes the 2016 Tesla Model X rather noticeable is its extended glass roof. The glass roof extends from the dashboard into the rear spoiler which is a pretty uncommon thing in production cars.
The cabin of the 2016 Tesla Model X is generously spacious. It has three rows of seats and it can accommodate up to seven occupants at the time without them being worried about headroom and legroom space. Cargo space is also at an enviable level, which further highlights Model X’s SUV credentials. The cabin is equipped with technologically advanced Tesla Touchscreen which is basically the brain of the car offering you a great deal of details about vehicle’s status and allowing you to control a huge amount of infotainment features. Of course, once the real car hits the market, there will be many changes but we sincerely hope that the cabin will benefit from the concept’s and Model S’s technologically advanced cabin.
2016 Tesla Model X Engine
Just like other Tesla’s vehicle, the new 2016 Tesla Model X is an electric vehicle. A pair of electric engines will be on the front and on the rear of the car. The newcomer will have the same battery pack as the Model S and that is a 60 kWh and an 85 kWh battery. The output of both engines will be around 400 ponies. If you decide for a 60 kWh battery, you will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in six seconds, while the latter enables you to reach 60 mph in 5.5 seconds.
