Unveiled at Tesla's outline studios as an idea auto in February 2012, the Model X is being readied as a generation model for the 2015 model year. Tesla's first SUV, the Model X has been produced on the Model S stage as a vehicle fit for seating up to seven individuals. It was at first booked to go into generation before the end of 2013, yet was deferred as Tesla needed to concentrate on offering more than 20,000 Model S autos that year. Generation was once more rescheduled from 2014 to 2015, and with a few models as of now seen testing in California , a 2015 dispatch is more than likely. 

The Model X will hit showrooms as Tesla's third generation model. Tesla started making vehicles back 2008 with the Lotus Elise-based Roadster and proceeded with the Model S in 2012. Not at all like the Roadster, the Model S was composed by Tesla starting from the earliest stage. Other than being a more functional adaptation of the Model S, the Model X will likewise help Tesla build deals and gainfulness. The organization's creation focus for the Model X is between 10,000 to 15,000 units a year. The generation model will presumably be fundamentally the same to the idea . Indeed, even the front segment outline looks horrendously like the Model S vehicle, which shocks no one given Tesla is likewise hoping to embrace a corporate styling for its forthcoming BMW 3 Series contender.

The real highlight of the Model X’s exterior design are those Falcon wing doors. It’s been a while since a company was audacious enough to try and pull something like this off, and yet Tesla Tesla looks like it’s keeping these doors on the production version of the Model X. It’s an incredibly bold move that should attract customers looking for something functionally funky in their new SUV, as if the drivetrain wasn’t enough.

Another unusual design characteristic of the Model X is the extended glass roof. The glass extends from the dashboard all the way back into the rear spoiler — a unique feature for a production car. Tesla’s really swinging for the fences with the Model X’s design. If the production model sticks to the same script, it’s going to turn a lot of heads.                                                             The Model X’s interior is pretty spacious. There are actually three rows of seats in there, capable of accommodating up to seven adults. Captain seats in the second row are a nice touch, offering each passenger his own space. Even if its fully occupied, there’s still ample cargo space, further highlighting the vehicle’s SUV credentials.

Moving to the front, Tesla spared no expense in bringing the wood to its design. Quite literally, too, because the dash has some wood surfaces to complement the technologically advanced Tesla Touchscreen, an enormous display that essentially functions as the brains of the vehicle, allowing you to access and control a huge amount of information and the entertainment features on the Model X.

Of course, the production X will see a few changes, but I still expect it to mirror the Model S’ high-tech cabin, as well as showcase a number of unique bits to better differentiate the SUV from the sedan.                                                                                                                                          Like every other Tesla model, the Model X is a fully electric vehicle, with no gasoline engine. Much like the Model S, the Model X will feature a pair of electric motors that are mounted on the front and rear of the vehicle.

The Model X is also tipped to carry the same battery packs as the Model S, including the standard 60 kWh and a more performance-oriented 85 kWh battery. Output should be around 400 horsepower, while range should be in excess of 200 miles for both models. Expect the 60 kWh model to hit 60 mph in around six seconds and the 85 kWh model to achieve the same benchmark in around 5.5 seconds.

There’s no word on whether the Model X will receive an "85 kWh Performance" model, but it’s likely Tesla will want to launch a beefed-up version of the SUV as well. Output could sit at nearly 700 horses in this model, which would translate into a 0-to-60 mph time of less than four seconds.            Tesla has made no indication of the price tag of the Model X. Our guess is predicated on the cost of the Model S sedan, which has a starting price of $75,570 for the 60 kWh model before the $7,500 federal tax credit.

Using that as a starting point, it’s possible that the Model X will sell from about $82,000 all the way up to about $115,000 for the range-topping model. These numbers are pure speculation so don’t be shocked if they are off a little.

Deliveries are slated for the third quarter of 2015, but that date is available for already-ordered units. Customers that haven’t placed a reservation yet are likely to take delivery of theirs in early 2016.         There aren't a considerable measure of SUVs out there that can brag the qualities the Model X has. Some are being created, however most are still in the idea stage. In any case, if there's one electric SUV that is grabbed some steam lately, it's the Audi Q8 e-tron. 

Back in February 2014, Autocar reported that Audi was presently building up an electric powertrain innovation that could be utilized outside of the R8 e-tron. That is the point at which it first broke that a Q8 e-tron was really in progress. 

The Q8 e-tron apparently will have a more forceful configuration dialect than the current Q7. Expression of a more car like appearance was being tossed around. You recognize what other electric SUV has a "roadster like appearance"? The Model  of course.Here’s to hoping that the Model X doesn’t stray too far from its concept. We know one thing for sure, and that is the Falcon Falcon wing doors will, in fact, be on the production model, as confirmed by Elon Musk himself. We just hope the rest of it carries over from concept to production
