Not taking into considerstion the fact that it has taken Tesla Motorsports four years to bring out a new model after the launch of the Roadster back in 2008, we will focus on the electric car startup’s third model, Model X crossover due out in time for the 2013 or 2014 model year. Right now, Tesla is working on the Model S electric sedan due next year, which will have four different trim levels including a high-performance, BMW M5-rivaling sports variant.
However, we should be able to see some results concerning a crossover that will share the Model S’ aluminum chassis and running gear as early as this November’s 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. The model X, is most likely to be unveiled in early ‘Beta’ prototype form at the L.A. event.
This new crossover will be a fully specced luxury vehicle, and it will feature even more packaging solutions than the seven-seat Model S like third-row seating capable of comfortably accommodating seven full-size adults.
Pricing for this car is confirmed to be set higher than the Model S, which has announced an amount of $49,900 after the $7,500 federal tax credit for electric cars and it will feature all-wheel drive.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has revealed the fact that the Model X is supposed to arive less than two years after the Model S, which gives us time to gather more information regarding the details of this car.
