Every car fanatic should already be familiar with the Tesla Roadster, pretty much the coolest electric car ever. Sometime this year Tesla will be unveiling the Tesla Model X SUV, which could be the “coolest” SUV to hit the market.
That would make it half the cost of the Model S, which Tesla CEO Elon Musk had once claimed could cost as little as $20,000. It actually costs closer to $60,000. But if Tesla can actually build an electric car that gets 200 miles of range or more, and make a profit selling it for $30,000, that might be a real turnaround for the company.
Which begs the question, what will the Model X cost? Will it be an aggressively tuned vehicle that puts the “sport” back in SUV, or too loaded with luxury to get out of its own way?
