The Tesla Model X 60D has been a short-lived trim of Tesla’s all-electric SUV. After being introduced in July following the Model S 60, Tesla introduced the same software-limited concept for the Model X with a 75 kWh battery pack capped at 60 kWh.

This week, the automaker removed the option from the design studio and in the process, it significantly increased the base price of the vehicle to $85,000.

Tesla pushed several updates to its design studio this week, including removing two colors and making the Smart Air Suspension standard on all versions of the Model X.

But the removal of the 60D trim is by far the biggest update to be pushed to the studio since it significantly increases the price of the Model X by $11,000.

It’s not clear why the version of the vehicle was removed and we reached to Tesla yesterday for a comment, but the company didn’t respond.

It’s certainly not to streamline the production since the vehicle was identical to the Model X 75D, but its battery pack was software-limited to 60 kWh. The same concept is still available on the Model S’ online design studio. The option might not have been as popular on the Model X.
