Tesla reveals Model X SUV
The Model X blasts from 0-60mph in just 4.4 seconds and will go on sale by the end of 2013.
The new Tesla is based on the same platform as the company's Model S saloon, and shares around 60% of its components.
Tesla says the Model X will have a range of 210 miles with a 60kWh battery and 270 miles with an 85kWh unit.
The new car comes with a pair of ‘Falcon wing’ doors, which open outwards and upwards to allow easy access to the rear seats. Front and rear luggage space is also provided for added practicality.
Power is delivered by a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system, which shifts power to where the traction is needed most to aid cornering.
The Model X will cost from around $50,000-$90,000 (£32,000-£57,000) when low-scale production starts in America at the end of 2013, with full production commencing in 2014.
