The Model X got its big revel last night, but ahead of this, the EPA finalized its testing procedures for the upcoming electric crossover. With that, the EPA saw it fit to release some of the specs of the Model X, but it limited the revelations to just the 90D and P90D models.
According to the EPA, the 2016 Model X 90D will travel a total of 257 miles on a single charge. This amounts out to 90 mpg-e city, 94 mpg-e highway, and 92 mpg-e combined. For comparison’s sake, a similarly equipped Model S 90D travels up to 270 miles on a charge, and is rated 95 mpg-e city, 106 mpg-e highway and 100 mpg-e combined.
For buyers looking for the peppier P90D model, you’ll lose seven miles in total range, dropping it to 250 miles. This amounts to ratings of 89 mpg-e city, 90 mpg-e highway, and 89 mpg-e combined. The Model S P90D is slightly better at 253 miles of EV range, 89 mpg-e city, 98 mpg-e highway, and 93 mpg-e combined.
The Model X will launch with its best foot forward, as Tesla will initially make the Signature Series model available. This range-topping model will start out at $132,000, and it will net its buyers Tesla’s Autopilot system, air suspension with GPS memory, a premium audio system, and more. Additionally, buyers can tack on an extra $10k for the optional Ludicrous Speed feature, which allows the Model X to hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
Keep it locked here for all of the details surrounding the 2016 Tesla Model X. We’ll bring you more updates as they roll out.
