Perhaps, but they'll sell a shitload to people who would otherwise buy a Porsche Cayenne or Range Rover Evoque. Selling a shitload with a nice healthy profit is what they need to do to get the Model 3 on the road.Rather uninteresting. Big, expensive, nothing particularly spectacular compared to the Model S.
You say 'Meh' to Falcon wing doors!!!Rather uninteresting. Big, expensive, nothing particularly spectacular compared to the Model S.
Dual motor was developed for X (and then reverse applied to S). 90kwh pack was most likely also developed for the X and applied back. It also goes into a totally different segment, and from speaking to parents with young children it does solve a (first world) "problem" of getting kids into car seats. It'll also make a good taxi. They can sell more X's than S's, (or maybe a roughly similar amount, but double in total) so if as you say it's a small change to their existing car that doubles their sales, well, that lets them produce the model 3 twice as quickly. Why is that a problem?Don't get me wrong, I like the doors. But it doesn't seem to really push things forward much. Okay, they showed you could do a big Chelsea tractor EV. But it isn't cheap, it doesn't have better range than the Model S, it doesn't charge faster... It's basically just a bigger, less efficient version of the previous car they released.
I was hoping for exactly the same, but nope the interior isn't a big step forwardWhile I enjoyed the performance of the Model S and appreciate the range, the interior is quite plasticky, especially for a car in its price bracket.
If Tesla hope to compete effectively with a Cayenne or Vogue (this isn't in the Evoque price range), I hope they've made the Model X interior luxurious enough.
All pie in the sky for me, though, I'm not their target market.
