Tesla Announced Affordably Priced Model X for Aussies
Tesla has announced the Australian pricing for its more affordable Model X electric SUV.
The all-wheel drive Model X 60D will be available for A$111,900 locally, and A$122,812.20 including the luxury car tax. Local pricing for the Model X 75D, 90D and P90D hasn’t yet been announced. Model X deliveries should begin in December.
The Model X 60D will have a range of more than 350 kilometres. That’s less power than the 75D, which will have a range of 417 kilometres. In addition, it boasts an acceleration of zero to 100 in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 210 kilometres per hour.
At an event held for female journalists in Sydney on Tuesday, Tesla’s Australian marketing lead Heath Walker suggested messaging around the Model X could potentially be more family friendly than the Model S thanks to features like the ability to seat up to seven.
“I think the Model S is as much a co-gender product as the Model X is in reality,” he said. “I have taken a Model S home and put the kids in it, and with front storage and rear storage, it’s got more storage than most SUVs.”
