Production of the first electric crossover Tesla Model X took a break

There are no second such unique and extraordinary Company in the world, as American Tesla Motors. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, the company is the original card of the 21st century – the environment, computer technology and innovation are not just appreciated, but cultivated here. And how else, as Tesla Motors is the brainchild of Larry Page and Sergey Brin – the founders of Google. That’s why Tesla Motors initially took up the development of electric vehicles only, as according to Page and Brin, the future belongs to these cars.

Tesla Model X crossover concept was officially launched in February last year. 7-seater car will be available in three versions: with rear wheel drive (one electric), all-wheel drive (with two motors) and charged all-wheel drive version. In the latter case, the Tesla Model X crossover will be able to accelerate from zero to 96 km / h in 4.4 seconds.

But recently, Tesla company announced that the debts for the U.S. Department of Energy, in the amount of $ 465 million will be paid in the five years ahead of time, but for this, they have to stop production of crossover Model X for a while.

If earlier it was planned to start production of the car at the end of this year, now it is the third or fourth quarter of 2014. True, production of the sedan Model S will increase and by the end of the year the company plans to sell 20,000 copies of the model.
