Tesla finally rolled out its third model, the Model X last night to loyalists and some media (not us) Tuesday in California.
The SUV’s falcon doors and
ludicrously insanely fast 0-60 mph times (3.2 seconds for a car that weighs 5,441 pounds) may get most of the headlines, but the rest of the car’s features and specifications are just as impressive. Tesla says that the batteries in its Model X — which are the same as the Model S — are good for 250 miles. The combined torque for its front and rear engines motors, which produce 259 hp and 503 hp respectively, is more than 700 pound-feet.
And the air filtration system inside may protect you from mustard gas, or something.
