Alexander Kaufman from the Huffington Post is claiming that the 2016 Tesla Model X will boast with some “elements people haven't seen in the show car,” while Gavin Martinsson Tweeted that it “will also have an ionic separator so you can pee into the car and the car uses it as a lossless dialectric. #GENIUS.” I am somewhat... terrified by that.
Lastly, James Batchelor of AutoExpress tweeted that the “Model X due this summer and will feature things we haven't seen on the concept before... unsurprisngly [sic].” As things stand at the present moment, we believe that the Tesla Model X is virtually ready for production, with a single problem in the way of that being the tooling for the manufacturer’s Fremont factory.
As noted in our previous Model X coverage, the all-electric, all-wheel drive, dual-motor crossover SUV will borrow the D-ified Model S’ powertrain and much of its chassis, seat up to 7 people and will come in three guises (60 kWh, 85 kWh and 85 kWh Performance). The X’s Falcon Wing Doors are confirmed too.
