The concept version of Tesla’s Model X – one of the few all-electric SUVs on the market – was unveiled last September in California by the company’s CEO Elon Musk.
The forward-thinking electric car manufacturer is using the upcoming 2016 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto to officially show off the final production model of Model X – which is a global first.
Apart from the design of the eco-SUV, Telsa also plans to reveal the vehicle’s display for the first time. The Model X features rear falcon-wing doors that open upward, and the driver’s door automatically opens and closes when the driver is near.
In addition, the Model X seats up to seven passengers, features a 90 kWh battery that offers over 400 kilometres of range with the capacity to hit 100 kilometres per her hour in four seconds (only on the P90D model that comes with “ludicrous mode.”)
Tesla notes on its site that the “estimated delivery for new reservations is the latter half of 2016.” As for cost, starting price is expected to be $142,000 USD.
The Canadian International Auto Show kicks off on February 12th.
