I've been thinking of getting an Tesla S 85kw.
Then I saw the Tesla X. And now I can not decide.
Seems like an extra engine will give me even more speed on the dragstrip (http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/video-model-s-vs-dodge-viper) and still be better for driving in the cold arctic winter.
Doing av quick research it seems that adding another electric motor actually does not really eat away from the battery range as one first might think. When I first read about Tesla X I figured with the same 85kw battery the driving range would be half of Tesla S - but that is not the case. It seems that Tesla X will have almost the same possible range as Tesla S.
You people who have been here for a while might have picked up far more information about Tesla then I have.
Is there any rumors that Tesla X will have an option for even larger batteries then the 85kw?
It seems I can wait 6 months or so for an A or wait a year for the X.
I live north of arctic circle with winter 6 months a year. Probably smartest to wait for the X?
Anyone seen any comparison between the Tesla S and Tesla X when it comes to actual driving range without charging?
