Tesla Model X

Tesla Model X

Tesla now offers an entry-level version of the Model X. With a 60 kWh battery pack, this version starts at only $74,000.

Just like with the S, Tesla software limits the 60 kWh Model X. The 60 kWh X comes fitted with a 75 kWh battery pack, but in order to enable to extra capacity, the buyer must either opt for it up front (by purchasing a 75D for now, though we suspect this version will be discontinued soon), or pay at any point in time later down the road.

Unlocking the additional kWh costs basically the same as it does for the 60 kWh version of the S. The cost to unlock upfront is $9,000 (the cost to upgrade for the S is $8,500 up front, or $9,000 after the fact).

Range for the 60 kWh X is listed at 200 miles per charge, or 37 less than the 75D version of the X.

The 60 kWh version of the Model X is still a dual-motor, AWD electric SUV, just like its more expensive versions.

All 4 versions of the X list "Late September" for delivery.
