This post is for all my friends and followers and readers who legitimately need a large vehicle because, well, they have large families. Tesla has been showing off a preview model of its Tesla Model X (you can see scads of photos in this ZDNet photo gallery
I'll let the specs in the photo gallery do the talking, but approximately 60 percent of the innards of the Model X mirror those of the other Tesla vehicles, notably the Model S. The lithium-ion battery pack is the foundation of the SUV. Because of its weight, the Model X will probably get between 10 percent and 12 percent less range per charge than the Model S. It will come in an all-wheel-drive option, for those of you who live in snow- and ice-prone areas of the world where this really matters.
Production on the vehicle is supposed to start in late 2013, with "significant" deliveries starting in 2014, according to the Tesla Motors Web site
