Tesla Model X, plans to debut in 2015 [VIDEO]

Tesla Motors unveiled its latest one-of-a-kind vehicle last night: the highly anticipated Model X. Blending the best of an SUV with the benefits of a minivan, Model X features unique Falcon Wing rear doors and optional Dual Motor All-Wheel drive. Watch Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk host the Model X unveiling.

Model X is designed from the ground up to blend the best of an SUV with the benefits of a minivan, as only an electric car can. It is an automobile above category, built around the driver. It artfully provides unfettered performance and brilliant functionality
Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive
Model X is offered with optional Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive. The second motor enables more than all-weather, all-road capabilities: it increases torque by 50%. When outfitted with AWD, Model X Performance accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, outperforming the fastest SUVs and many sports cars.
Third-row access is finally easy. Even with child seats installed, the second-row seats slide all the way forward. Open Falcon Wings let you stand all the way up as you get in and out. Kids no longer leap and tumble over the second row, and adults find the third-row seats as accessible as the passenger seat.
In the driver’s seat, you’ll find a stylish combination of premium interior surfaces and panoramic glass. Set in the futuristic dash is the Tesla Touchscreen, providing access to information and entertainment while on the go.
We unveiled the Model X Design prototype on February 9, 2012. 
It represents our current vision for this groundbreaking vehicle. Deliveries will begin in 2014 and priced comparable to a similarly equipped Model S. More details will be announced as production nears.
Battery Options
Model X will be offered with a 60 or 85 kWh battery.
Tesla Motors plans to unveil an electric car in early 2015 that could sell in the $40,000 range, a mainstream offering that could be key to the automaker's future growth.
