I can’t wait to see the Tesla Model X in person. An SUV that will do zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds!?! Wow!….Ultimately, Tesla’s future will rest on the sales of highly anticipated $35,000.00 Model 3, but the Model X is a very important vehicle too. The Model S and Model X have to carry the company until the Gigafactory is up and running and the company can produce Model 3 in 6 digit volume.
Tesla’s [fortune-stock symbol=”TSLA”] hotly anticipated, long-delayed third model — not to be confused with the upcoming Model 3 — is expected to ship this fall. It’s been a long time coming.
