After years of delays and rampant speculation, it’s finally official – the Model X has arrived. In a live event at the company’s factory in Fremont, California, Tesla CEO Elon Musk personally handed out keys to the first models off the production line, detailing the vehicle’s features and capabilities along the way. The Model X is framed as an uber-safe, uber-clean, semi-autonomous, highly practical, all-electric long-range SUV capable of embarrassing hardcore sports cars in a speed contest. That’s a lot to chew on, even for the most disruptive automaker on the block.

Unlike Tesla’s first model, the Lotus Elise-based Roadster, the Model X was built totally in-house using the existing Model S platform. However, unlike the sedan, this SUV can sit up to seven passengers and carry an attic’s worth of stuff, all while going 250 miles in a charge and hitting 60 mph quick enough to make you see plaid.

Sounds wild, doesn’t it? Read on to see exactly what I mean.

Updated 11/24/2015: An official Tesla Model X configurator confirms that the electric SUV will be priced from $80k - before any incentives and not including $1,200 destination fees. If you will opt for the six seats pack you will have to pay an extra $3k, while the Autopilot function adds $2,5k to the final cost. Other options include a $4,5k premium package, a $2,5k premium sound system and a $1k subzero weather package.
