Tesla Unveils Its Model X 60D – The Cheapest Model X Vehicle Ever To Be Released
If the original Model X 90D was too pricey for you, then you’ll want to know that Tesla has officially unveiled its Model X 60D, which is the most affordable Model X introduced by the manufacturer.
Model X 60D Will Be Starting From $74,000 – Tax Credit For Those Who Are Living In California
The affordable version of the company’s SUV lineup features a starting price of $74,000, plus an additional $1,200 destination fee. However, if you’re lucky to reside in different locations of the United State, you will quickly find that the price tag of the Model X 60D can be brought down. For example, potential buyers residing in California can get a $7,500 federal tax credit and a $2,500 incentive, which will bring that massive total down to $64,000, which is not a bad deal for a Model X vehicle.
Tesla would obviously prove that all-electric cars is superior to those that run on gas. According to the company, one owner could save up to $7,400 over the course of five years, which is a decent amount of cash saving. However, if you’re trading a fuel-type vehicle with all-electric vehicle, then you should be prepared for the consequences too. You might not have to continuously fill the tank of your car with gas, but it all depends upon how far you can run on a full charge with the SUV's 60 kWh battery.
According to Tesla, you will be able to travel approximately 200 miles on the Model X 60D. The company’s Model X 75D is rated for 237 miles, while the most expensive, the Model X 90D is able to deliver 257 miles, but carries a price tag of $95,000 before incentives. If you decide later down the road that you want to rake more travelling distance while spending some cash, you can always swap the 60kWh battery with the 75kWh cell present inside the Model X 75D.
Model X 60D is also an all-wheel drive and according to Slash Gear, it should do 0-60 mph in six seconds, on to a top speed of 130mph. If you want to take full advantage of the vehicle’s Autopilot features, or at least the hardware required for the semi-autonomous driving system, enabling it will actually set you back by $2,500.
According to Tesla, the Model X 60D will start to ship in late September. For its price, does the SUV provide a suitable alternative compared to the more expensive all-electric cars? Let us know your thoughts immediately.
