The crossover, which was expected to arrive later this year, has been pushed back to the second quarter of 2015 according to Tesla CEO, Elon Musk. Musk shared the news today during the American automaker’s earnings call.
The Model X has been delayed numerous times, and this time around, it is likely being pushed due to a constraint in battery cell supply. During the call, Tesla also explained that Model S production has also been hampered due to battery cell supply, a situation it hopes to resolve by the third quarter.
While the final specifications on the Tesla Model X have not been announced, the crossover will come standard with Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive and will accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in less than five seconds. The unique Falcon Wing doors will make it into production, allowing easy access to third-row seating even with child seats installed. Like the Model S, the Model X will be offered with a choice of a 60 or 85 kWh battery.
