Tesla to reveal Model X electric SUV on February 9

CNET wrote:Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed in an interview with GigaOM that the Model X will be shown at an event on February 9.
An alpha build of the car was apparently shown to investors last month. Autoblog reports that the Model X will be shown at Tesla's design studio in Southern California.
The Model X will be Tesla's third production model, after the Roadster and Model S. Based on the same platform as the Model S, it will have a larger, SUV-like body reportedly capable of seating seven adults.

Yuck.. an SUV. I was hoping for a small sportscar that could seat at least 4. IE, something that would compete with the Leaf in range and price, but be faster and sportier.

Smart move with a common platform between S, X, van and convertible.

Hopefully we'll have a choice between X and S at the end of our current lease vehicle... Although my wife might want to wait for the drop top.

“Skateboard” chassis should allow a minivan size interior in a station wagon form factor. 100+ mile range, a 30amp+ onboard charger, and real utility. Very interested in the X.

Probably - but unlike the hush-hush meeting with investors, this will be a press event.
