Tesla Model X Falcon Door Operation In Real Time – Video
— Chris Woodyard (@ChrisWoodyard) September 30, 2015
The falcon doors are, by far, the most controversial feature found on the Tesla Model X.
Some love the doors, while others loathe them.
This video, posted by USA Today’s Chris Woodyard, shows the falcon doors in action. In this tight space, the doors operate flawlessly, yet are so slow that we fear they’ll be an annoyance.
However, we’re told that when there is more room and no nearby obstructions, the doors operate more quickly. We hope that’s true, because in this video the doors take nearly 13 seconds to close, a time that’s likely far too long for impatient types.
Time to bring on Insane (or Ludicrous) mode for the doors.
