Tesla’s Musk says sedan sales strong tied to SUV launch event

Secondly, the supercharge network of Tesla will be the key in helping the firm beat its competition as no other company has such a widespread network.


But at the launch, he went further.

The Model X will be able to charge your phone from a special little cradle.

The company revealed the signature edition of the Model X, which is the high-end version of the Model X series. The interior of the vehicle is kitted out with all the specs that are familiar to any Tesla driver, like the 17-inch LCD display for keeping control of everything.

“What does this bode for the vehicle that’s supposed to be Tesla’s real cash cow?” What’s more, because the Model X doors are double-hinged, they can open up fully even when there’s just 12-inches of space to each side, a feat accomplished by having the doors open up upwards before opening up outwards. A lot of them.

Musk was referring to Google co-founder Sergey Brin, who is one Tesla’s early investors and now one of the first owners of the much awaited Model X. The electric auto company expects to deliver about 50,000 vehicles this year – including sales in overseas markets.

Furthermore, the Model X also has the ability to blind holster a phone, which will automatically fit. But perhaps the feature that has got the most attention is its air filter, which boss Elon Musk said would keep people safe from attacks. “Ninety per cent of parts for the X are fine, 9% are hard to deal with, and the final 1% is excruciating”. Of all equities tracked, Tesla Motors had the 27th highest net in-flow for the day.

Elon Musk, the colourful entrepreneur behind Tesla, said he wanted to prove that any vehicle could be electric. But its production process is a long way from that 500,000-per-year goal. With a seven-passenger capacity, the Tesla Model X will feature a range of about 400 km, thanks to its 90-kWh battery pack.

“We anxious there might be a few cannibalization” of Model S demand by Model X buyers, he said at a SolarCity Corp. event. In fact, according to Musk, the Model X would remain intact and end up on its wheels if it were to roll off a cliff.

Numerous automakers have announced plans to build their own EVs to compete with Tesla. However, the question remains that how well the offering will fare with customers. “I mean that’s pretty rarefied air even in the luxury market”, Nerad said. But the challenge now is that Tesla needs to start increasing demand to spur production, generating the revenue necessary to fund Model 3 development.

Apparently, Tesla must focus on marketing the idea behind the SUV to its customers. “Zero Compromises.” – may see a bounce from the growing “dieselgate” scandal that has engulfed VW and cast a shadow on the German vehicle industry. Tesla’s mass-market competitors have had 100 years to figure out how to do it effectively.


Then again, the SUV is also equipped to avoid an accident.
