Tesla Model X Price, Release Date & More! Elon Musk’s New SUV Is Built For The Fast Lane?

Tesla’s Model X is the newest supercar from Elon Musk’s company, and from its looks alone, one can tell that it offers a ride like no other. It even has falcon wing doors to prove it.

The all-electric vehicle is built to be a sports car. It is a powerful car but is whisper quiet when running the fast lane. With its astonishing design, it is not surprising that USA Today noted that Tesla's rivals are now "wallowing in complacency."

Aside from its unique design, Model X also boasts of really outstanding features. Its advanced sensors and state-of-the-art software can easily detect imminent collisions and immediately apply brakes.

Musk can also brag about the "bioweapon defense mode" of Model X, which is simply a very fancy term for sterilization. The feature prevents the penetration of pollen, bacteria and even viruses into the interior, giving you a ride that is as clean as it looks.

While the front of the car is minimally high-end with its typical doors, the back is where the magic comes in as the two back doors are designed to imitate falcon wings. And don't worry about having to search for really good parking spaces for this wing-like doors to open, they are just as good and functional in crammed spots, as per CarThrottle.

Inside the car, Tesla's Model X is just as majestic as its falcon-wing doors. The seats are strategically placed on pedestals, so there's extra room for storage below.

Don't worry about having to tow heavy objects, this electric vehicle is so powerful it can tow things as heavy as 5,000 pounds, which is already very impressive given that it is an electric vehicle.

With all of the good things Tesla's Model X has, it is not surprising that it is really pricy. The 90D model that Musk unveiled on Tuesday costs $132,000, while the P90D model that boasts a "Ludicrous Speed" acceleration mode has a price tag of $142,000.

However, for those who don't want to spend that much for the Model X, Musk announced via Twitter that "lower cost versions" are arriving in the near future, Vox has learned.
