Tesla is now letting you spec out the Model X Signature Series crossover. Pricing for this version of the Model X starts at $132,000, but the “Ludicrous Mode” speed upgrade will cost an extra $10,000.
The 90 kWh Tesla X has an estimated 240 miles (EPA) range which will take you to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. The “Ludicrous Mode” does even better on the straight line: 3.2 seconds. For comparison, the base Model S P90D is rated for 253 miles with a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds.
Standard equipment on the all-wheel-drive Model X includes “falcon wing” rear doors with built-in sensors for opening in garages of any height, a rear hitch for bikes or skis, free long-distance travel on Tesla’s expanding Supercharger network, parking sensors and blind-spot warning, automatic emergency braking, and power-folding, heated side mirrors.
The Signature series comes with so-called Autopilot features such as self parking, air suspension, satellite radio, ventilated leather seats with heating and cooling, three independently operable, adult-size second-row seats, and a flat-folding, two-adult third-row seat. Tesla offers an optional towing package for the utility vehicle that is rated for up to 5,000 lbs.
Tesla’s site says new orders won’t arrive until “early 2016.”
