Tesla Model X Stories April 23

Tesla is currently investigating an accident that happened in February in Guangzhou where a Model X crashed on the highway and caught on fire. The owner of the vehicle and her boyfriend were sitting in the second-row seat and they claim that the Falcon Wing doors were not opening after the crash resulting in them being stuck in the backseat while the car was starting to catch on fire.

They managed to exit through the front door just as the vehicle went up in flames, but not without injuries and now they are asking Tesla for 8 million Chinese yuan (~$1 million) in compensation. expand full story

Earlier this morning, Tesla updated its online design studio for the Model S and X in order to change pricing and standard options for the base models (75/75D and 90/90D) and to introduce new features in the Model X.

The company has now explained that they will implement “slight price increases to their higher end 100D and P100D models”, Tesla’s longest-range (and consequently the world’s longest-range) vehicles, next week, which should result in a similar price average as before today’s changes. expand full story

Tesla made a lot of changes to its design studio today. They mostly had to do with pricing changes for the Model S following the discontinuation of the Model S 60 and 60D option – you can read Jamie’s post for all the details, but the Model X was also updated and with new features – not only price changes.

The flagship all-electric SUV has new wheels and a center console for the second-row seats. expand full story
