Tesla Model X deliveries are expected to boost the company’s growth.

The expectation from customers are so high that the pre-orders of USD 5,000 each came even as the pricing details stay unannounced. However, CEO Elon Musk has earlier stated that pricing will be pretty much similar to that of Model S sedan which starts at USD 50,000. The website says that estimated delivery time for new reservations is early 2016.

The car is propelled by two independent, digitally controlled electric motors details of which will be revealed towards the launch. All wheel drive system is standard.
