Tesla Model X shown at CES 2015

Tesla has unveiled its new Model X electric crossover at the CES 2015

Tesla has brought its first ever SUV-crossover, the Model X, to CES 2015. Initially unveiled in 2012 and now production ready, it features eye-catching ‘falcon wing’ doors and taught packaging to become one of the US carmaker’s most practical creations. 

Performance comes from a dual-motor all-wheel drive system, with a small electric motor powering the rear axle and large one sending drive to the front. The result is a 0-60mph time of less than 5sec, impressive in a car that features three rows of seats.

Inside, the Model X receives Tesla’s large Touchscreen, which provides internet access on the go and removes the need for buttons across the dash. Those gullwing-esque ‘falcon wing’ doors enable easier access and wider space for those climbing into the rearmost third row.

Two options are available, the standard 60kWh Model X, or a faster Model X Performance that gains an 85kWh battery.
