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?
Indeed, Tesla says the “Model X is the SUV uncompromised.” It’s possible that in removing the compromise from an SUV, they have inadvertently made a minivan. Or they made a minivan from the get go and now they’re blurting a bunch of nonsense about any SUV identity.
There’s some serious evidence that the Model X is not an SUV at all (it does not have even the slightest inclination about going off road), but rather a minivan.
- It is built off of the same platform as a regular car, the Model S.
- It rides low.
- It has three seats.
- It has ridiculous rear doors designed to make life easy in parking lots.
That Elon’s newest car is a minivan makes sense. The guy has five kids.
Don’t worry about calling the X a minivan, Elon. Minivans are cool!
