The new 2016 Tesla Model X that is expected to hit the market soon, is a mid-size SUV vehicle that uses similar components as the company’s Model S sedan. Since the Model S was pretty successful and wanted car, the company made a decision to launch another vehicle with similar components, except that these components now arrive in a more family-friendly crossover design.
The manufacturer now offers us a crossover-style version of their famous sedan that will offer excellent performance and luxury just like its older brother. The company had an intention to start to produce the Model X in 2013, but they changed their mind because they wanted to sell more than 20,000 Model S vehicles before they start with producing the Model X. The production was postponed from 2014 to 2015 as well, but there is a great possibility that the new model will finally appear in showrooms in 2015.
2016 Tesla Model X Side
The first and the most significant change when it comes to the upcoming model are the rear doors. Why the rear doors? Well, the new 2016 Tesla Model X sports gull-wing style doors, which open upwards. The doors ensure a powerful appearance of the vehicle, but they also appear to be useful for rear passengers allowing them to get into and out of the vehicle easily. We’ve already mentioned that the vehicle boasts an excellent SUV design, but we haven’t mentioned that the vehicle arrives with bigger ground clearance and of course with bigger wheels. The taillights, headlights and overall contours look much alike the ones we’ve seen on sedan. The upcoming model will be long and wide as the previous Model S, but it will be a bit taller.
