    I suppose the Hybrid X6 can't be on this list since it's been cancelled.

    RX450h doesn't have a 3rd row, Cayenne doesn't appear to either. You probably could include the Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited, comes to around $50,000 with all the options. It probably better matches capability, if not luxury.

    Add the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid and the GMC Yukon Hybrid to the list.

    My wife has a hybrid Highlander with the 3rd row...
    If the Model X had been available when she was shopping for that car...

    I thought the Mitsubishi might be a competitor until I read the word concept and the 4 occupancy killed it for me. I agree the Highlander Hybrid gets the closest in terms of utility. I bought probably one of the first 1000 to be produced back in 2006. When I went over the 100k mark, I went to test the latest 2012 HH. The 3rd row is much easier to accesss and larger and more comfortable than 2006, but ... The larger size translates into roll and pitch on windy roads. I already have a love/hate relationship with my 2006 hybrid highlander because I needs its extra clearance but dislike SUV's in general because of their high center of gravity. The 2012 Highlander is a definite no for me; the thing rolls around like a boat on wheels as you corner. I put a new timing belt in and am going to hold out until the Model x to replace it. Tesla is a genius giving us clearance and low center of gravity in the Model X.

    It's a concept form of the Outlander.

    Calling someone who knows the European car market better than me. I know across the pond, you guys have some efficient diesel people haulers and efficient AWD vehicles. I wonder if there are any efficient AWD, people haulers, with clearance and handling more like a sedan that goes from 0 to 60 in less than 5 seconds? Hmm.. it might be hard to find a good comparable.
