Tesla Announces New Sports Car Model X
A new car would soon be showcased by Tesla Motors, the popular Palo Alto electric-car maker, as revealed by a new report. It has been found in the report that the sport utility vehicle would be ready for sale next year.
It is being said that Tesla Motors, which is run by an entrepreneur Elon Musk, is going to introduce a battery-powered sports car SUV: Model X after the launch of Model S sedan that is under production this year. The report has found that the sports car would have gull-wing doors and it would prove to be a successor of the fastest sports cars like Porsche AG's 911.
The report has found that the manufacturing of the car Model S would take place at the Fremont plant of Tesla. The car is being expected to make Tesla profitable earlier by next year i. e. 2013 since it would be possibly launched for sale by then. In addition, the organization is also expecting that it would increase its sales on a large pace by the year 2014.
As per the report findings, the sports car has been described by Alan Clarke, who is the Manager of studio engineering at the Hawthorne facility, to have two electric motors along with all-wheel drive. He also told that it has a
17-inch touch-screen for navigation and audio as well as doors that swing open upward. It has been told by the company that the Model X to be manufactured in the next year would be more spaced than Audi AG's Q7 SUV.
Also, it would take nearly a third and half less capital investment as compared to investment on Model S, Musk added. Thus, it is being supposed to be launched with Model S only.
