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.

One thing everybody is waiting for is the actual drive comparison, where we find out if “range charging” the 60 can be done constantly, because of its 75kwh stores. Also, like the 75D vs. 90D in the Model X lineup, whether or how much the 60D will come closer to range not suggested by the loss of kwh. IOW, will it be a 200 mile car, every day?

Yes the 60 is a 75 battery. You can range charge every day. It will also super charge very fast and you actually get to use all 60kWh.

I personally am also waiting to see if the 5 seat configuration of the Model X includes a second row that folds flat. You know, like EVERY OTHER SUV IN HISTORY, EVER!
