Tesla Motors has recently unveiled its third electric car, an all electric vehicle, the Model X. Built on the same chassis as the four-door Model S, the Model X is a hybrid, a cross between an SUV and minivan.
In terms of the exterior the model has “falcon wing” doors that are similar to the gullwing doors often seen on concept cars but rarely on actual production vehicles. Tesla Motors CEO, Elon Musk, says that the advantage of the doors that lift upward make it easier to get in and out of the car especially in tight parking spots.
Musk mentioned on Thursday that the Model X will be priced similarly to the Model S, costing between $50,000 and $70,000. However, even though it shares a chassis and drive train with the Model S, the X will have a 10% shorter range because of its extra weight.
