    Model X - Elon Musk says new SUV model due in 2013

    Surprised I didn't see this anywhere:

    http://green.autoblog.com/2010/04/28...l-due-in-2013/

    Musk said that, after the Model S arrives in 2012, Tesla will introduce a crossover utility vehicle and other models starting in 2013.

    I believe that is the same as this thread: Tesla: Mercedes A-Class EV Destined for U.S

    Edit: Nevermind, just read the article. They do relate to each other though cause they mention the Mercedes stuff.

    Personally, I find the TTAC version of the article more amusing...

    Gotta love comments like these:

    Vaporware – their finances are a train wreck. I’ll be surprised if the S ever ends up in the hands of customers. By the time they come to market Ford, Toyota, GM, Nissan, and Fiat will all have ICEs or pure electrics on the market, all at a lower price point. Agree with twotone – get payment up front.

    You think?

    I recall similar comments when Roadster was under development. If I had the time I'd write a book on TM and include an entire chapter or appendix on some of the "better" comments.

    Just looking at the cars, and the one featured car component, shown near the top of the main page should give to you some idea the disposition of the website. Could they be ... living in the past?

    Just wondering.

    I of course agree that that specific comment was stupid, but I do sense a change. Especially in places like TTAC which was/is essentially a gathering point for Tesla-haters. Hardly anyone says vapourware any more and most of the critics are playing up something I think is irrelevant but it is an actual issue. Which is a contrast to how it was before the Roadster was in teh hands of customers, when most of the critics in places like TTAC was plain wrong and stupid. In many ways Tesla has already done a great deal for EVs in general and Tesla in particular.

    To keep this slightly on-topic I though the idea of the IPO silence was that Tesla shouldn't be making statements about the future like Musk just did?

    I think Tesla Motors will be able to deliver an SUV by that time frame because they are planning to use the Model S platform as a base for a proposed coupe and SUV and maybe a mini van. I think Tesla's future models are riding on the success of the Model S program.

    Eww...I don't much like the look of that I'm afraid.

    Apparently Tesla is in need of some creative design input.
