Thread: X To Cost Less Than The S?

  1. #1

    X To Cost Less Than The S?

    Yahoo Autos Car of the Year

    "But ultimate survival will depend on a genuine marketplace embrace of both the Model S and the forthcoming Model X, a four-door mini-ute that should be priced a bit downmarket from the S"

    So the X will cost less than the S? Has anyone seen any info from Tesla that backs this up?

    No ... In fact, the X may end up being considerably more expensive than the S. "Comparably priced" leaves a lot of wiggle room. Certainly the dual motor option is likely to add quite a premium.

    I agree with Spleen... Not to mention the falcon doors.

    I'm expecting it to be more. But I won't complain if it isn't.

    Also, I wouldn't exactly call it a mini-ute!

    I do believe the author was getting confused between the Model X and the Gen III. Model X is expected to be a bit more expensive than the Model S. It's bigger!

    My recollection is that Tesla said that, generally speaking for similar sized battery packs, the X would cost about $10k more than the S.

    This is my expectation. And the addition of the front axle motor to make all-wheel drive will probably add and extra $10K.

    I could have sworn that they said the X was going to start at $40k, but maybe I'm making that up....

    I've never seen that number - or anything other than "comparable to the Model S".
