Tesla's Model X: A First Look

Falcon Wings

Most SUVs have traditional horizontally swinging doors to get in them, but the Model X looks almost like a Lamborghini Diablo, in that the doors open up, instead of out like traditional doors. "You easily step, not climb, into Model X," the company notes on its website.

Seating

The Model X will offer a third row of seats, and the second row slides forward, making access to the third row easier. By having Falcon Wings, it allows you to stand up as you get in and out, meaning no more bending over when entering and exiting the vehicle.

As with the Model S, the Model X will have what Tesla calls "a stylish combination of premium interior surfaces and panoramic glass."

The Tesla Touchscreen will also be available in the Model X, as it is in the Model S. The touchscreen, which looks like an enormous iPad, offers a wide range of entertainment and information options.

From the dash, you can change the general climate in the car, both for the driver and passenger side. There's also a slew of other features, including opening and closing the optional panoramic sunroof, opening the front trunk as well as offerings of Internet radio (labeled "Media" on the dash), Navigation (featuring Google Maps), surfing the Internet, the rear-view camera and connecting your phone via Bluetooth.
