Model X is all-wheel drive and a 90 kWh battery providing 250 miles of range on a charge, accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in as quick as 3.2 seconds. The top speed is 155 mph. It continually scans the surrounding roadway with camera, radar and sonar systems, providing the driver with real-time feedback to help avoid collisions.
Falcon Wing doors allow easy access to second and third row seats from even a tight parking space. The doors articulate smoothly up and out of the way, allowing passengers to enter from both front and rear directions. Tesla engineers say the doors can open with as little as 12 inches on each side of the vehicle—then proved it by having us park between two cars.

The Model X is identical to the Model S with the same 90 kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery and the same drive motors (259 horsepower at the front, 503 at the rear) and the same software controlling it all. The price for the Model X starts at $132.000. The company plans to start production immediately, but wouldn’t say how many might be built by the end of the year.
