Production of the Tesla Model X crossover has been pushed back from the end of this year to the end of 2014. The original Tesla Model X was supposed to go on sale early in 2014, but now deliveries will likely begin early 2015. We’ve taken a ride in a Tesla Model X prototype, which has flashy “falcon doors” that Elon Musk said will make installing child seats easier. The Tesla Model X, the third model in the automaker’s lineup, will be a crossover based on the Model S sedan’s architecture, complete with seating for seven, a massive hatchback and rear “falcon wing” doors that open vertically to allow easier access to the third row of seats. The oft-delayed Tesla Model X is currently set for a Q3 2015 launch, two years after it was originally supposed to enter showrooms.
Green Car Reports offers three reasons for the gull-winged crossover’s delay from its anonymous sources, the first being the bane of all electric vehicles, range. You mean you don’t want to park carefully and miss the garage door rails, bike handlebars, and everything else leaned up against the wall?
I live in the Bay Area, the most popular place on earth for these types of electric cars (and now trucks). I’d like to see someone run a calculation on how many inches of driving range the mirror issue costs this vehicle.
Yeah the jump seats in the S are kids only, and the 3rd row in the X may very well be kids only too. Some cargo can fit behind the seats, and the rest can be stored under the front hood… just like in the Model S. The question that you should be asking is: What is being spent to develop the next Model S? The manufacturer being Tesla, it was a given that the Model X would be an electrically driven vehicle.
These doors lift up from the sides, then hinge in the middle before gaining their full height.
Impressively, he was able to stand in the car, his head underneath the open door, without crouching. The Model X, which is built on a slightly elongated version of the Model S platform, has a full third row.
But in keeping with the Model X’s SUV-style body, Tesla will offer an all-wheel-drive variant, along with a base rear-wheel-drive model.
That means the car’s computer can tell the front motor to apply, for example, 25 percent torque, while still giving 100 percent torque to the rear wheels, based on the driving conditions. Musk says he does not expect the Model X prototype to change much in its looks when it reaches production.
Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen says he tried to design the car to not look too masculine or too feminine. This week found me driving with Green Ontario plates, which means my exhaust pipe is emitting zero emissions. Tesla’s all-wheel drive Model X with powertrain based on the Model S has been seen before, but its interior is all-new and impressing show-goers this week in Detroit.
The car on display was the handiwork of the Tesla Design Studio and is being called a preview of what to expect when this, Tesla’s next production vehicle, is launched. Featuring white and black leather, the stylized design is echoed in the details of the dashboard. The Model X on display carries forward the trademark “falcon wing” doors of the unique Model X. On the interior center display is the same large 17-in touch screen carried over from the Model S.
The vehicle looks extremely promising, and is a much closer indication of what customers can expect of the production model.
Tesla has been taking reservations for it for some time now, and it is due for launch near the end of this year. FREMONT, Calif.—At the Tesla factory in the breezy Bay Area, scores of Tesla owners and enthusiasts gathered under red mood lighting to grab free drinks and hear Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk talk about his company's third vehicle line—the Model X. As he took the stage, Musk dove into an unscripted discussion of the Model X's safety features. The air filter is apparently so robust that the interior of the Model X even has a "bioweapon defense button," according to Musk.
The second row of seats was the subject of a demonstration as well—those can move up and forward to allow an adult to move into the third row of the seven-seater car. The Model X will be able to tow 5,000 pounds as well, Musk told the crowd as one of the cars rolled up carrying seven people and towing a giant Airstream trailer.


The all-wheel drive Model X has two motors, one 259 horsepower one in front, and a 503 horsepower motor in the rear. Tomorrow, Tesla will ship its first Model X SUVs to people who have waited months and years—that’s right, years, to pre-order a market-ready Model X. An SUV may not seem like the most obvious choice for a luxury car maker, but currently the market for that form factor is hot. For the past few weeks, what the world heard a bit about Tesla's newest wheels came from what we could glean from pricing of the Model X Signature Edition, which is not cheap. The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Conde Nast. On the outside, the Model R maintains some very Tesla-esque features including the signature stout front-end, sharpened up with a new grille and a more aerodynamic hood. The Tesla Model X was big news from the moment it was announced with buyers quickly lining up to hand over their hard-earned money and secure their place in line to own one. Mercedes-Benz is not only competing against Tesla when it comes to electric and hybrid cars. Shell Malaysia has launched the Shell Helix Engine Warranty (SHEW) programme, the first of its kind in South East Asia.
Tesla Motors has also announced Model X , an SUV capable of a sprint of 0 to 60 mph in under 5s . The electric cars can be charged either at home using the standard 110v or 240v at the public charging stations in the U.S  .
Moving forward , with the uncertainty in oil prices , and the need to go green , improvement in the technology of batteries will be key to make electric car a success in the near future . A Tesla representative told the Los Angeles Times that the wait for the electric crossover has increased as the company focuses on filling orders for the Model S four-door, which could reach 20,000 units this year. While Tesla focuses on Model S sales and delays the Model X, the company has pledged to pay back its Department of Energy Advanced Technology Vehicle Manufacturing (ATVM) loan by 2017 – five years earlier than the original deadline. At the time, Musk estimated that the Model X would weigh 10-15 percent more than the Model S, or about 4700 pounds.
Tesla plans to offer the Model X with a choice of either a 60 or 85 kWh battery, although the lowest-spec 40 kWh battery available on the Model S won’t be an option on the new crossover.
The company has also raised $40.5 million from sales of zero-emission vehicle credits and greenhouse gas credits to other undisclosed companies, according to its annual report. Tesla had hoped to pull 250 miles from the 85-kWh model by using side-view cameras in lieu of door mirrors. While keeping the elements out has been solved, side-impact protection and structural issues remain. Since the house probably only has 80 AMP non-grounded electrical service, you’ll be charging at the free employee charging while at work. If they do, it’s a huge liability in a parking lot if someone happens to park next to you. So you have to park it in a garage, because otherwise you’ll be chipping the snow and ice off the goddamn roof just to get in.
So during a preview for a small group of journalists at Tesla’s design center in Los Angeles, Tesla CEO Elon Musk focused on the innovative side doors.
Tesla will likely offer the same battery configuration options that it does for the Model S, although the Model X should get 10 percent to 12 percent less range due to its increased weight. While the doors are funky, this being a crossover, it is ultimately meant for utility and has three rows of seats.
Musk stopped short of revealing official pricing for the standard Model X (currently we only know that the Signature Edition costs a hefty $132,000 and that a base model could cost around $93,000), but he did outline a number of details about the vehicle that could pique the interests of the market. The car apparently has a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with a 6.5 percent probability of injury. Good enough to wait out a biohazard apocalypse, with enough room under the hood for your best bug out bag. The doors are double-hinged and equipped with a specially designed ultrasonic sensor "that can literally see through metal," Musk said. In early February, Tesla said the Model X would be delayed from late 2014 to early 2015—now here we are in late 2015. According to the Associated Press, luxury SUV sales went up 17 percent in August in the US, "five times faster than the industry as a whole,” the AP reports. As we mentioned, it starts at $132,000, up quite a bit from the Model S sedan’s base of $70,000 (although neither of those prices include state and federal tax incentives). First, it will be the last new car model that Tesla will release until the Model 3 in 2017.


The car was originally supposed to be available way back in 2013, but that soon moved to 2014, and then recently all the way out to the third quarter of 2015. Tesla Motors was founded in July 2003  by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning to create efficient electric cars for people who love to drive .  The Chairman of the company is Elon Musk .
Capable of  135 mpg (miles per gallon) , a driving range of 250 miles in a single charge and a sprint of 0 to 60 mph in about 4s , the car was powered by the state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery energy system .
The  numbers may appear small but considering a young start-up company , this is big deal .
A standard 10kW on-board charger allows 31 miles per 1 hour of charge which is pretty long charging time . The next Tesla model in the pipeline is a smaller electric sedan at a lower price point to appeal to broader range of customers. However, doing so would require some changes to safety standards, standards that are currently under-study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. With expectations of safety to be equal to the Model S, the doors would need strong interlocking beams to protect the rear passengers, at the expense of increased weight and possible consumption of precious interior space. For the gull wing doors, I thought they were silly from the start (and I’m not convinced that they are even operable in most garages). How is there going to be any room for people back there in that tiny space, and with that roof line?
Once they have resolved certain challenges, like motor cooling, what will they be able to do with those solutions? Unlike gas engine cars, which can shift torque from front to back, Tesla can reduce or increase torque at each set of wheels individually. Musk added that because the car's battery is distributed along the chassis, the Model X has a significantly reduced probability of rollover injury. They only need 30cm of space on either side of the vehicle to open, and Tesla rolled out some beat up minivans to park next to the Model X to demonstrate how Tesla's car altered its open path to avoid the nearby cars. But now that it’s arrived, we’ll take a gander at its "falcon-wing doors" (Tesla's take on gull-wing doors) and its three rows of seating. Of course, there are tons of extras to add on as well, from upgrading the car’s performance to allow for a “ludicrous mode” zero to 60mph performance option. The Model 3 is supposedly Tesla's "budget electric vehicle," and it will apparently start at $35,000.
If you were one of the first in line, then that date holds, but anyone else thinking of placing an order is now looking at sometime in 2016. The strategy of  Tesla Motors  is fairly simple , first focus on building an electric  sports car and then , second ,  focus on building an affordable electric car .
Some industry source felt that 20,000 for a Model S may be a little too high base on past performance , but Elon felt otherwise .
Members consist of senior forum members, Tesla-owner-bloggers, journalists and green & solar tech industry veterans. With nothing on the horizon, the automaker will have to find those miles elsewhere for now.
In turn, the doors’ torsion springs have to better spread the weight through the narrow spine of the aluminum roof, lest warpage occur.
Second, Musk has set lofty goals for sales of Teslas—he's said that he wants his company to sell 500,000 cars per year by 2020. All this paired to a single-speed gear-reduction transmission fitted with paddle shifters to enhance driver experience.
The future landscape can change quickly depending upon how oil price perform and also how the electric powered batteries technology has improved over the months and years . Anyway , Tesla Motors is building super-charger access across the U.S with a capability of 160  miles in about 30 minutes of charging time for a 85kWh battery .
The automaker may end up using more expensive titanium to get that it needs out of that part of the crossover.
Until recently , several car manufacturers like Mitsubishi and Toyota has reported improvement in their battery technology where they are able to reduce the weight and size of the car batteries by half .
This is definitely good news for it means either having large vehicle or higher performance .
