The saga created by Model X sightings gets a new episode, as someone spotted the all-electric crossover wearing transport wrappings. Which made us wonder whether deliveries have started already.

The truth is, they didn't, as Tesla Motors still has test prototypes roaming California's roads, but this particular car looks production ready to us.

If that's not the case, then it's very close to mass production form, and we're not talking about the plastic foil covering the vehicle's bumpers. If you remember, previous Tesla Model X sightings showed test prototype dragging a trailer or fitted with exterior antennas, which is not the case for the car we're talking about now.

Then again, that kind of plastic covers for the front and rear bumper are used on new cars that just rolled off the production line, to protect them from damage during transport. After all, nobody wants rock chips and scratches on a brand new car.

According to the video description, the blue Tesla Model X was spotted turning onto Deer Creek Road in Palo Alto. The clip was posted online by YouTube user SiliconValleyTeslas, and it also shows a white Model S electric sedan leading the way for its crossover sibling, probably heading back to headquarters after a couple of testing sessions.

Last time we stumbled upon the Tesla Model X, we told you the reveal is imminent, and we stick to that statement. Judging by Elon Musk's letter to the shareholders, the all-electric crossover should pop up next month, so for now all we can do is remain patient.

Nevertheless, Tesla Motors has been accepting reservations for the Model X since April. In four months, over 13,000 customers signed in, and considering the fact that the standard version of the Model X requires a $5,000 deposit, there’s no doubt about the clientele’s buying intentions.
