Model X Wtih Front Nosecone Added
The upcoming Tesla Model X will come with the same optional ‘Ludicrous Mode' as the Model S when it launches it just a couple of months, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Musk stated that with Ludicrous Mode, the Model X will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.3 seconds, making it much quicker than a base Porsche 911.
"Musk also said the Model X will weigh about 10% more than the P85D, which tips the scales at 2238kg. That means the SUV is likely to weigh around 2460kg - heavier than both the Range Rover Sport hybrid and BMW’s X5 eDrive."
"While Tesla has yet to reveal the technical specifications of the Model X’s powertrain, the SUV could use the same one as the P85D, which already features dual electric motors. Combined, the two motors produce 682bhp, enough to give the 2238kg P85D a 0-60mph time of 3.2 seconds, a top speed of 155mph and an electric range of 300 miles."
Model X To Get Ludicrous Mode Too
Autocar speculates that a "full unveiling for the production-ready Model X is likely to come at the LA motor show in November." Though we tend to believe that the unveiling will happen sooner than November and at a Tesla-only event, not a major auto show.
Tesla CEO Musk says that first Model X deliveries will occur in 2 months.
