Tesla Model X launch delayed
Originally scheduled for late 2013, the all-new Tesla Model X crossover won’t go on sale until a year later.
“Tesla has been intensely focused on Model S, its production and product enhancements and believe there is increased volume potential for Model S. As a result, Tesla has decided to slightly push back the development and timing of Model X to 2014. We do not expect a material impact on our profitability in 2013 or 2014,” the company wrote in a press release.
Unveiled for the first time in 2012, the Model X continued to impress with its “Falcon Wings” doors when it appeared at Detroit’s NAIAS earlier this year. The interior was slightly revised to test public reaction to the new approach.
The Tesla Model X will offer a choice of 60kWh and 85kWh battery packs, as well as optional all-wheel drive.
