Elon Musk claims that the Tesla X is pretty much sold out for 2015, with over 207,000 models reserved. With the buzz surrounding the car and the many mysteries still behind the Model X, excitement for the upcoming vehicle is at its peak.
The Tesla X is becoming more popular by the hour for its flashy new features: it has ample six or seven seating arrangement, falcon doors and the largest all glass panoramic windshield of any car in production, as well as crazy features such as the bio weapon defense mode button and the super fast ludicrous mode button.
But much mystery also surrounds the car: it’s still not certain how much it will cost, for one. The reservation deposit is currently $5,000, but that is only a deposit. There’s still no saying how much the car will go for. There’s also no saying which trims will be available for the Tesla X, or how or when production will roll out the car.
Since Tesla is quite talented at using marketing to create hype for their products, this is only natural. They’ll likely keep the mystery until they no longer have to, or until cars are actually ready to roll out. Tesla is reported to be making several hundred units of the Tesla Model X by the end of 2015, and is targeting the production of 1,600-1,800 units a week by early 2016. If what Elon Musk says is true then the model may well be sold out for until 2017.
