Tesla Motors will roll out the Model X early in 2015. Boasting with seven seats, Falcon wing doors and the Model S P85D's two-motor, AWD layout, this is a bit of a bet for the Palo Alto-based EV carmaker.
Nevertheless, there's little chance the Model X is going to be a commercial flop due to the fact a lot of people already placed orders for the thing. Inspired by the overwhelming hype of the Model X, an unidentified Land Rover official told AutoCar that they're considering to make a Range Rover EV.
This will likely come in the form of a sharp, low-roofed crossover, maybe something even more striking than the Range Rover Sport. Aesthetic ambiguity aside, the mysterious electric Range Rover will certainly differentiate itself visually from the big, boxy Range Rovers at the top of the automaker's food chain.
Even JLR's engineering director Wolfgang Ziebart hinted in September that the group plans to make a Jaguar XJ-sized electric Range Rover if the US and Chinese markets will hike their electric vehicle buying momentum. Last but not least, the previously mentioned publication estimates the electrified Range Rover will hold a £90,000 sticker price and be off-road capable thanks to adjustable air suspension.
