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.

      Yes, but at least this one is tech news. I prefer Tesla monkeys to Uber monkeys… Even if I can’t afford a $200,000 car!!!

    Ian while it is a nice thing, I don’t see how this is related to mobile…

      It’s technology. And cars are mobile. That’s why they’re called automobiles.

    • Eric M.

      LOL by mobile we mean portable electronics… I don’t see how having a car news fits on a mobile news site…

    • blueadept1

      Tesla is electronic.

      Also, expect live coverage from the new Casio G-Shock launch next week. I hear that it will have a new button to instantly start the stopwatch.

      ahahahaha loved that one 😛
      I know Tesla has electronic involved I’m not dumb but it has nothing to do with the mandate of this site which is mobile electronics.

    • I think they are slowly diversifying into a wider range of news

    • Richard Wangly

      It’s been that way for a while, and yet every time such an article is posted, someone questions it. *shrug*

  • Roger

    As much as I’m interested in reading about Tesla model X, I didn’t expect to see it here. Slow day?

  • vn33

    Thanks for this MS! I’d rather read about electric cars than about a strike by the the taxi industry 🙂

    You better close these back doors quickly in the middle of a rain or snow storm…

  • Lyndon Boychuk

    Hopefully it’s also self driving. It would be awesome to be in the back seat messing around with those cool doors.

    142,000 USD equals…Ummmmmmm, nevermind.
