Initial Australian pricing for the 2017 Tesla Model X SUV has been announced today, starting with the Model X 60D. That entry model will be joined by more powerful variants that will include the 75D, 90D, P90D and P90D with Ludicrous Mode.
The company has confirmed today that the Model X 60D will start at $111,900 (plus on-road costs).
Despite being an entry-level model (although not entry level on price), the 60D will promise over 350 kilometres of driving range, a top speed of 210km/h, all-wheel drive, and a 0-100km/h time of just 6.2 seconds.
Including on-road costs (luxury car tax, GST, stamp duty, compulsory third party insurance and registration), Tesla estimates the entry level Model X will be priced at:
These high prices reflect the need for some local Australian government incentives to stimuate the electric vehicle market. Some things for the government to consider are to cut the luxury car tax on electric vehicles, provide tax rebates or incentives, allow alternative benefits including car pool or bus lane access amongst other things.
EVE Australia expect to see the following options available locally for customers:
We expect to see the first Model X on Australian roads towards the end of 2016.
