The long-awaited revelation of the Tesla Model X has finally arrived. And we gotta admit, the hype and all that wait was definitely worth it.

As the third model of Tesla’s company automotive portfolio, the Model X Crossover carries the same design architecture of the Model S. As expected, the front end of the Model X is similar to the Model S while the sloping roofline exudes an aura of coupe-like aggressiveness and downright awesomeness. We gotta give props to Tesla on the design of the prototype crossover because it looks amazing!

But the biggest talking point of the Model X are the so-called "falcon doors"on the rear, allowing the passengers a rather unique access to the car. These rear doors are complete with a hinge in the middle of the door that allows it to be folded and opened in tighter spaces. Say what again?

Inside, the Model X was designed to carry three rows of seats, providing enough space for - at the most - seven adults while also having ample room to carry some extra luggage. Another unique feature of the Model X is that it has two storage areas - one in the front and another in the back - that was made possible because the crossover doesn’t carry a combustion engine.

Speaking of the engine, Tesla announced that the Model X will carry the same batteries that are currently being used on the Model S, particularly 40-, 60-, 80-kWh battery packs that allow a variety of powertrain options for prospective customers. The expected range for the Model X is expected to be 145 miles for the 40kWh batter pack and up to 275 miles for the much more powerful 80kWh model.

Considering that Tesla waited a while to unveil the Model X, the crossover’s mind-blowing design has made the wait worth every second. Here’s to hoping that the production version remains the same as the prototype!

Wow, no updates about this. I am attached to this article to know if someone bought this Aston Martin. Do you have any idea?

This Tesla model shows how great it was. The idea of putting a gull-wing door at the rear seats was fantastic. I think it’s the first time to have this idea. I find the interior cool and refreshing.

The Tesla has his own appearance. It was great in the exterior. The falcon doors are a good concept. Keep on working with these guys.

It’s my very first time to look and heard off at this new concept of Tesla. I like the way the body paint looks luxurious on style. This must be an unusual model for this year. This model copes with more aggressiveness looks.
