Tesla's New Model X, Unveiled
Tesla Motors unveiled the Model X electric crossover Wednesday night. It is a mix between an SUV, a minivan, and a sports car: The battery-powered vehicle seats seven, accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in seconds, and features Back-to-the-Future-inspired doors that open upward, which Tesla has termed "falcon wings" (?!?). It is expected to cost anywhere from $60,000 to $100,000.
Don't worry about jealously eyeing one on the road any time soon, however; the Model X is not expected to hit Tesla showrooms until 2014.
Skip to the 15:30 mark in the video below (yes, the video is almost half an hour long) to see the new model.
