Australia, where the Labor Party is pledging to attempt 50% electricity from renewables by 2030, also recently got Tesla stores. Miss Phryne Fisher would surely be driving a Tesla Model S P90DL to ensure being first at the crime scene she is investigating in Melbourne, if she was in service today instead of in 1928. However, the S has a new contender — it’s first, actually. Orders are now open in Australia for the Tesla Model X.
Australia has more than a few travelers ardently anticipating a new SUV from the esteemed US electric vehicle innovator. Australia expects the Model X to show up by the latter part of 2016 for orders that take place now. Any Australian driver who desires to secure the 7-seat, all-electric Model X can do so @ Tesla Motors.
For ease of access, each Model X comes with functional falcon-wing rear doors. Looking like they are set to soar, the wings fold up and out of the way to allow easy access to second- and third-row seats. Soccer moms, movers, and plenty of others will be happy.
