Two words…Ludicrous Mode! No not the rapper the uttered the words “Move…get out the way!” but Tesla is shouting it with their $10k option on the Model X P90. Tesla has created stronger more powerful batteries to deliver blistering fast 0-60 times with the push of a button. With the batteries positioned under the passenger compartment, the Model X is well balanced. Imagine hitting 60mph in 3.3 seconds, just as fast as your neighbors Porsche GT3 RS and taking turns at fairly high speeds like you are in a low profiled sedan, but in what looks like a giant hard boiled egg. I kid about the looks, as I do dig the styling a lot, especially the falcon-winged style opening of the rear doors. Both utiltarian and space conscious.
With the introduction of the Model X, Tesla is making a run to trump the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, BMW X5M and Mercedes GL AMG and any other sporty SUV contender out there attempting to whoo people looking to tote theirs rugrats around to hockey practice or band camp. The Tesla Model X should make runs to the grocery store waaaay more fun than that wood-paneled station wagon of yester-year.
So move over 3-minute eggs, and make way for Teslsa’s 3-second soccer mom mobile.
Way to go Mr Musk.
