So, what do buyers receive in Tesla Model X Signature Series ($132 000, excluding tax benefits)? Four-wheel drive seven-seater crossover is equipped with two electric motors with output of 259 hp (front axle) and 503 hp (rear axle), so even in the basic configuration the acceleration to 60 mph takes stunning 3.8 seconds. For those who wants more, there is a Ludicrous mode (extra $10 000): 3.2 seconds to “sixty” and a quarter mile from standstill in 11.7 seconds – it seems that the table of ranks in drag racing should be seriously reviewed. The top speed of Model X will be limited to 155 miles per hour, and the battery capacity of 90 kWh will provide up to 240 miles without recharging.

Configurator for basic Tesla Model X will be opened only after all the customers who made the preorder configure their Signature series Model X.
