In just a few months, the world may spy the first Model X prototypes as they roll out of an expanded production line at Tesla Motors’ [NSDQ:TSLA] Fremont, California plant. In early 2015, the first production examples will reach reservation holders.
Though there has been some doubt about the Model X’s reality
after a push-back to its intended timeline
for production, the latest information indicates the Model X is back on track.
These facts were confirmed through an email to a reservation holder
, posted to the official Tesla Motors forums.
In the email, Tesla also confirmed several other key details about the production version of the electric crossover:
- The Model X will have Falcon doors
- Three-row seating will be available, but not standard
- All-wheel drive will be standard
- The second and third rows will fold flat for cargo
Much of this information was previously released by Elon Musk himself, but the confirmation in a reservation holder email serves as further evidence of the company's plans.
As for other salient information, such as range and model variants, we’ll have to wait until Tesla decides to divulge these details closer to the Model X’s launch.
