Everyone in Chicago, please, stop what you’re doing right now. There’s an emergency, and we need everybody’s help. A man’s Tesla Model X has been shat upon, and we must help find this rampaging car-shitter, who is still at large. At least, that’s what this Craigslist ad tells us.
It’s easy to forget that the Tesla Model X was intended to start deliveries back in early 2014. Now Tesla faces a legal battle after dropping one of its parts suppliers during development for issues with effectively engineering the “falcon” door system, in part delaying the launch of the electric SUV.
The 2016 Tesla Model X costs $80,000 before you start adding options or tax breaks. But you’d only know that if you were on “the list” to buy one of the first ones. Now you just want to see it because you can’t, right?
Tesla seems happy to talk about the new Model X as an SUV. It’s been called a crossover, too. But is it either? Did Elon actually just make a minivan?
The first Tesla Model X full-electric SUVs have hit the road this week, and we got a a little time to shake it down all the way to 80 MPH in the company parking lot.
The air conditioning system in the new Tesla Model X has three modes: circulating air from outside the car, re-circulating air that’s already inside the cabin, and a “bioweapon defense mode,” triggered by a button on the dashboard, which creates positive pressure inside the cabin to keep outside particles at bay. So,…
Eccentric billionaire, space privateer and auto manufacturer Elon Musk has felt it necessary that his new car, the Tesla Model X, come with protection against a bioweapons attack. And so it does.
The “Falcon Wing” rear doors on the Tesla Model X are pretty sweet. Everyone is amazed they actually made it to the production car. But what happens when you’re in a tight parking space with only a few inches of room?
The first owners are finally taking delivery of the gull-door’d electric crossover they’ve been waiting about three years for: the Tesla Model X. Here’s what we learned from a close look and a quick spin around the parking lot.
We got our first look at Tesla’s new Model X last night, and in a pretty dramatic change from their 2013 Detroit Motor Show design prototype, the Model X has no silly fake grille-like thing on its face. Just a nice, clean front end, a bold move in a world where a prominent grille has become a design crutch.
The Tesla Model X has been teased in concept form for years, but as the first six vehicles finally make their way into the hands of owners tonight we’ve got more info on Falcon Doors, mono-post seats, and the SUV’s bioweapon defense mode.
Tonight we get close look at (and quick drive in!) the Tesla Model X, which is being delivered from the factory for the very first time tonight. Anything in particular I should be peeking around for?
The 2016 Tesla Model X is set to have its grand debut in California tonight. But ahead of the company’s “official” announcement, we’re getting an official range rating from the Environmental Protection Agency. Clocking in at 257 miles, the Model X’s electric range is just shy of the original Model S’s.
A couple of sneaky YouTube users recently caught footage of the opening and closing of the new Tesla Model X hot gullwing (or as Tesla calls them, “falcon”) doors. As our narrators instruct us, “Be jelly.”
Tesla’s second quarter shareholder letter is out and beyond rejiggering it’s projected deliveries for the year from 55,000 to “between 50,000 and 55,000 Model S and Model X cars in 2015” – and sending it’s stock price down in the process – it’s finally promising Model X deliveries beginning next month.
If a wild, crazed South African runs up to you, screaming about visions of the future, tubetravel, and a free Tesla Model X, we’re hear to tell you that you should believe him. Maybe. Hopefully. But in all seriousness, Tesla’s said it’s actually prepared to give you a free Model X, if you meet the right conditions.
LUDICROUS SPEED. A speed so intense it makes all the other speeds look like little weenies in comparison. The Tesla Model S sedan is getting that mode soon in the form of a $10,000 upgrade that will propel the car from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. (Worth it.) But what about the upcoming Model X crossover?
