Tesla Confirms Several Model X Features Via Email To Reservation Holder
Tesla Model S 85D Specs
Details are trickling out on the Tesla Model X.
This email to reservation holders confirms that the base Model X will feature the same powertrain found in the Tesla Model S 85D and that the Model X will be tow-capable.
We already knew that the Model X would be all-wheel-drive only, but we didn't know for sure if Tesla would directly carry over the newly-announced Model S dual-motor setup into the Model X. Now we know, which allows us to speculate the specs for the base Model X:
- 376 hp motor power
- 188 hp front and rear
- 8 year, infinite mile battery and drive unit warranty
- Supercharging included
We further suspect that the 85D will be the base Model X, which leaves room for either the P85D or, more likely, the 110D and P110D (110 is just a guess, maybe it'll be 105 or 120?).
Something else was confirmed in the email sent to reservation holders: tow capability.
Tesla Model S Fitted With EcoHitch
However, if you read closely, you'll notice that Tesla states this in such a way that we assume a minimal rating with a focus more on being able to transport loads that would typically be carried rooftop (the Model X's falcon doors prevent carrying cargo up top):
"We can also reveal that Model X will be the first electric vehicle with towing capability. The optional tow hitch will support accessories and racks to transport skis and bikes with the minimum effect on aerodynamics."
We'll take a stab at tow rating: 2,500 pounds or less.
As details continue to trickle out, the Model X is taking shape. Do these announcements/confirmations make you more/less inclined to consider the Model X?
