Initial examination of the exterior of the 2017 Tesla Model X car confirms the assumption that its futuristic. The body model is distinguished by good flow. It is this quality that has allowed to achieve a perfect by modern standards, the aerodynamic coefficient is 0.24. The hood of the crossover round, with barely perceptible lateral sides. A Central element of the front Tesla Model X 2017 performs grille complex shape. Embossed large bumper perfectly complements the image of the “serious” cars, intended not only for short city journeys, but is designed to overcome the tough natural trails.
The model profile is designed in a modern stylistic shape, however, it is complemented with a number of unique characteristics. First of all, it’s missing the rear view mirror. They replaced a pair of video cameras, projecting the image on the screen in front of the driver’s eyes. Manufacturer completely abandoned and the classic lamp optics. No xenon, or halogen lighting. In the power saving there was a preference for LEDs – the most economical light sources.
The main stylistic “trick” will definitely call the design of the 2017 Tesla Model X rear doors, providing a vertical opening. This system is called “Wings of a Falcon”. The reason for this was the desire of Tesla engineers to facilitate access to the rear passengers in conditions of crowded urban Parking lots. The door can be opened when the distance to adjacent vehicles is just 31 centimeters! With multiple sensors the system will deny them the opening, if the vertical or horizontal space for this operation will be insufficient, so that the risk of scratching doors on the low roof of the garage box is fully excluded. However, “Wings of a Falcon” has made impossible the installation of the roof rack, however, can hardly be sad about it.
