Tesla unveiled its first-ever sport utility vehicle, the Model X, in early September. The vehicle that Elon Musk showcased featured the flagship Signature Series trim package that started at $132,000. Furthermore, because the Signature Series was reserved for buyers that had put down a deposit well in advance, it didn’t accurately reflect what the average Joe would have to pay for their very own electric SUV.
Now, we finally have a base price for the rest of us: $80,000.
The Model X is now being offered in three models: the 70D, the 90D and the P90D using the same naming convention as the Model S.
The entry-level 70D features a 70kWh battery that’s good for an EPA estimated range of 220 miles. It races from 0-60 mph in 6.0 seconds with a top speed of 140 mph. Starting at $96,700, the 90D affords a 90kWh battery that’ll carry passengers 257 miles between recharges. It’s also a bit quicker, too, reaching 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds and topping out at 155 mph.
If it’s breakneck performance you’re after, nothing short of the P90D will suffice. Although it features the same 90kWh battery as the standard 90D, its range is slightly less at 250 miles as the SUV can hit 60 mph from a dead stop in just 3.2 seconds with the Ludicrous package (an extra $10,000). All variants come standard with Tesla’s dual-motor all-wheel drive powertrain.
All said and done, a fully spec’d out Model X P90D will set you back $151,450.
The Model X P90D is scheduled to ship early next year followed by the 90D and 70D in mid- and late-2016, respectively.
