The brand new Tesla Model X took home the award for 2016 AutoGuide.com Reader’s Choice Luxury Utility Vehicle of the Year.

Winning a lot of fans for its innovative and futuristic-looking falcon doors, the Tesla Model X SUV has been generating buzz long before it was officially unveiled.

Tesla calls it “the safest, fastest and most capable sport utility vehicle in history,” and the Model X can drive up to 257 miles on a single charge. It’s also really quick: With the Ludicrous upgrade, the Model X can hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, which is faster than a lot of sports cars.

    You know, I have a Model X reserved, but even I have to concede this award is a tad ridiculous when only 6-8 Model X's have been delivered.
