The Model X will launch in the US this fall. Tesla first unveiled the SUV back in February 2012 and said at the time that the vehicle would start sales the following year. Since then, there have been a number of delays. The unique, falcon-wing door set-up has been said to be particularly challenging to reproduce on a grand scale, and the door seals and second row of rear seats have also pushed things back a bit.
Tesla representatives in the US didn't respond to a request for comment about the Model X's slated China debut from AutoblogGreen. Tesla chief Elon Musk has said that, once live, the Model X is likely to double Tesla's annual deliveries. Currently, Tesla's only model is the Model S all-electric sedan, which just got new, ludicrous options. The Califorinia automaker is looking to deliver as many as 55,000 vehicles worldwide this year. Through the first six months of the year, Tesla sold around 21,500 vehicles.
