The article is misleading especially about the monopost 'option'. There are not multiple 7 seat options.

1) The base price is 5 seats included. The back area of this is different than the 7 seat option with the 3rd row folded. I know people that waited for this just so they can take their pets and have more space (floor to ceiling).
2) Only 7 seats option is the bench for $3000.
3) Only 6 seat option is monopost for $4500 (and you can choose to get the center console or not — same price)

Tesla reduces the price of Model X, adds more standard options to performance vehicles

Tesla introduced several changes to its online design studio overnight in order to reduce the base price of Model X, its all-electric SUV, and make more options standard on the performance versions of Model S and Model X...


But after a $3,000 price drop today, the Model X 75D now starts at $79,500 with the standard 5-seat configuration or exactly $5,000 more than a Model S with similar options.

Tesla explained the price change in a statement:

“When we launched Model X 75D, it had a low gross margin. As we’ve achieved efficiencies, we are able to lower the price and pass along more value to our customers.”

Tesla had a lot of production difficulties with the Model X and its many “bells and whistles”, like Falcon Wing doors and self-presenting front doors, and it resulted in what Musk referred to as “production hell” during most of 2016.

At a press briefing for the launch of Model 3 last week, Musk said that Model X has now reached production parity with Model S in Fremont, where they are producing about 2,000 vehicles per week.

After hitting the lower-end of their delivery guidance for the first half of the year, Tesla said that they expect higher deliveries in the second half of the year – helped by Model X, which is now on display and test fleets for all of Tesla’s locations and in full production.

The new price drop shouldn’t hurt either on the demand side...

https://electrek.co/2017/08/04/tesla-mo ... e-options/

If the asking prices below are correct, it looks like the price of all(?) the (nearly) new P100D X's in TSLA inventory (67 for sale, including a few CPOs) dropped by $9 k to $10 k overnight, and closer to a $6k price drop for those which already had depreciated significantly.

Good news, unless you already bought one...

Bjorn Nyland's X stops short and takes a ride on the flatbed of shame.

Car shuts down with 14 km range left. I'm stranded 7 km away from the supercharger...

A guy could tow me. But car would not go in tow mode. Waiting for flatbed now...

Unbalanced cells. Normal speed at 85 % is 30-35 kW. This is why my car stopped at 14 km left yesterday...

I guess there are worse problems than still having > 2 kWh and > 15 miles of range when you see no range left blinking guess-o-meter and get the VLBW, like I have experienced with my 2011 LEAF.

He just had a Model X breakdown that he posted on Sept 11th while livestreaming: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... st-2305203.

I haven't watched the whole thing but the breakdown is near the beginning. I saw it go on the flatbed of shame near the end. He got a Kia Rio loaner.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wanr0LThvkM was posted by him on Sept 11th. It's the same embedded video.

While I don't know the delivery date of Bjorn's Model X, it couldn't have been before Sept 2015. This is well after the mistakenly thought to be "1,000,000 mile drivetrain" :roll: start date (see viewtopic.php?p=498198#p498198). I saw 113888 on the odo, which I presume to be km, so that's about 70K miles. I don't know if his DUs were replaced before then.

Only a few days after I got Optimus Prime back, I went on a 1200 km road trip. And unfortunately, the car broke down again...

Scott, have you given any update on how your eye is doing?

Very thoughtful of you to ask. I just had another surgery to replace the floor in my eye orbit. They used the CT Scan to build a custom one to match my floor and fasten it in. This one raised my eye horizontally and moved it forward but more work needs to be done to bring it forward unfortunately. Then a fix to the cataract (traumatic not age related as you would guess). Still unclear on the final outcome as far as how my sight will be. Making steps forward.

Aside2: Wow edatoakrun is a piece of work. 10 of 1000s of happy X owners including Bjorn Nyland who even shows the rare things and clearly pushes his X. Nice X sales in Sept (3rd quarter push obvioiusly).
