Elon Musk, Tesla’s point man, has announced that the company’s electric crossover will be unveiled on Feb. 9 at the company’s design studio in Hawthorne, Calif.
People are pretty excited about the crossover EV, as it will feature seven-passenger seating, something that Tesla is not famous for. They say the Model X will be the perfect family vehicle, with tons of room. The powertrain and battery options are similar to Tesla Model S, so experts think that there will be some definite decrease in the battery range because of all that extra weight and drag.
Tesla expects to build 15,000 units per year at its Fremont, Calif., factory, and suggest that the production Model X will be available in 2014.
Tesla has over 2,000 Roadsters out on the pavement all over the world, and their Model S, their first sedan, goes on the market later this year.
