The Tesla Model X has reached the biggest car market in the world, China. Deliveries for this electric luxury crossover will begin later this month with prices ranging between 961,000 yuan and 1.47 million yuan depending on the spec.
The Model X, in fact, is available in three versions: Model X 90D, Model X P90D, and the China-specific Model X P90D Signature Red edition. The base-spec Model X 75D, however, has given China a miss for now. The reason for such high pricing for the Model X is mainly due to the ludicrously high import taxes that is levied on imported cars.
The Model X is powered by Tesla's proven electric powertrain which allows it to accelerate from 0-100kmph in 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 250kmph, all the while producing zero emissions. The floor-mounted battery gives the vehicle a low centre of gravity and ideal weight distribution. As for the looks, one of the design highlights is gullwing-like doors that allow easy access to second and third-row seats, according to Tesla.
