From this Edmunds article: http://www.edmunds.com/tesla/model-x/2016/
"If you want one, expect to leave a refundable deposit of $5,000 for the base model or $40,000 for the Performance model."
As far as I can see, the only option available for reserving a Model X is a $5k deposit. Are the performance models all reserved at this point, or is Edmunds just making stuff up?
"Misinformed" probably. $40,000 is the cost for the limited edition Signature edition, which is effectively sold out. The performance-ness is up to the signature reservation holder.
The $40,000 deposit was for a limited, first-run, Signature Model, which is all sold out in most markets. There may be a few Signature models left in certain European countries.
That means, only non-Signature models are left in most markets, which is $5,000.
Thanks all. grant10k, my hope was something along the lines of what you said - I knew I wouldn't get a signature edition, but I'd hoped / though I could configure whatever I do get with whatever performance-y level I wanted.
You can configure whatever you want. The $40k figure has nothing to do with it.
True that, Brian lol
