Tesla Model S and X comparison for U.S. (July, 2016)

Tesla Model S and X comparison for U.S. (July, 2016)

With its latest addition of the Model X 60D, Tesla Motors now has have a fairly large lineup of 12 different battery/powertrain trim levels (counting Ludicrous Mode separately) for just two vechiles.

Some of the versions are equipped with physically different batteries/electric motors, while some others are just software-limited versions of higher trims (Model X 60D is one of those - being in a fact X 75D at the battery pack level).

We aren't complaining though, as we would be happy see a trend of more battery options being offered on various model by other plug-in manufacturers; but strangely most are not yet interested (outside of BMW with the i3 and Nissan with the LEAF)

The Tesla Model X 60D starts at $66,500 after $7,500 federal tax credit. Tesla says it can be leased from around $866 a month.

The 60 kWh battery limit makes the Model X 60D the lowest range Tesla at 200 EPA-rated miles/320 km...just enough to get full CARB/ZEV credit value.  Acceleration to 60 mph is the same in 60D as in 75D at 6 seconds - nearly twice that of the top of the line P90DL.
