First Tesla Model X Buyers Now Picking Colors, And More
Well, if you want Tesla’s new SUV with every option possible, it looks like it’ll cost you.
Tesla sent out online configurators for its Model X Signature Series, a limited run first edition model with nearly option, to customers this week. Many customers began posting screenshots to the Tesla Motors Club forum early Tuesday.
The New Model X starts at $132,000 before tax credits, but the “Ludicrous Mode” speed upgrade — announced in July — will run an extra $10,000. The online tool lets customers choose their paint and interior colors, and select options. As for specs, the 90kWh battery pack will be good for 240 miles on a charge and a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds.
This debut is a big milestone for Tesla, which started operating about a decade ago selling an electric roadster. Using much of the same vehicle architecture as the Model S, the X is expected to boost Tesla’s volume and help it transition from niche car maker to a player with higher volumes.
The Model X has been a very long time coming, so those who put in an early pre-order will no doubt be very excited. If you want one and haven’t ordered, be prepared to wait: a tally on the Tesla Motors Club forum has nearly 20,000 U.S. pre-orders recorded.
