For many, it's hard to get excited about crossovers, but when that crossover is all-electric, all-wheel drive, and sports awesome/crazy "falcon wings," it's much easier to get the pulse up--and that's exactly what the Tesla Model X is.

Fortunately, we don't have too long to wait--the Model X will enter production within a year according to the company's schedule. And when it does, it will come standard with all-wheel drive.

That last tidbit might seem like the price of entry for a rather luxurious crossover these days, but it hadn't been confirmed until Green Car Reports uncovered the facts at the prompting of a reader, who had noticed the two-wheel-drive option was missing from Tesla's website.

All-wheel-drive is a common feature among crossovers, but Tesla's version is likely to be far more advanced in some ways than what you'll find on combustion-powered vehicles. Why? Because Tesla's system can control the power distribution to each wheel much more quickly and with finer control thanks to its electric motors.
