If you've been holding out on placing a $5000 reservation deposit on a Tesla X for fear of how much it would cost in the end, worry not — the configurator is now live so you can check it out for yourself!
We could spend all day equipping various configurations of the Model X, but we'll leave that fun for you. Here's what you need to know.
Of course, the biggest and most expensive options are the battery. The base 75D with a 75kWh battery is good for 237 miles range, while the 90kWh-equipped 90D gets up to 257 miles range, though you'll pay $15,500 for the increased range and acceleration. These numbers don't quite match the range of the updated Model S, but the X is a bigger and heavier SUV compared to the low and slick sedan.
There's also the P90D option, trading a bit of range for even faster accelerations (and an optional Ludicrous Speed Updated) — though you'll be looking at a $35,500 upgrade over the base 75D.
When it comes to style options, you've got the same paint swatches as the Model S, though some colors work better on the X than they do on the S (and vice versa). There are four choices for wheels, with the default 20-inch silver wheels, $2500 20-inch Silver Helix wheels, or 22-inch Silver or Onyx Black Turbine wheels for $4500.
Unlike the Model S, there are three different choices for laying out the interior of the Model X. The standard five-seat interior sports a pair of captains seats up front and a three-seat bench in the rear. For a $3000 upgrade, the six-seat model places a second row of captains chairs with an easy passage through to the two-seat bench in the back. And for maximum passenger capabilities, the $4000 seven-seat layout puts the three-seat bunch back in the middle. Both three-row options add rear zone air conditioning and heating.
The $2500 Autopilot upgrade, $4500 Premium Upgrades Package (with air filtration, ambient lighting, leather arm rests, and ventilated seats), subzero weather package, high-amperage charger upgrade, and 17-speaker ultra-high-fidelity sound more or less match their Model S equivalents. Interestingly, the Smart Air Suspension, with its automatic adjustments for handling and efficiency, is a $2500 option only on the 75D — 90D and P90D customers have it included by default (you would want it anyway).
An option that's not at all available on the Model S, however, is being able to attach things to the rear. The $750 Towing Package adds a removable 2-inch hitch receiver (with towing capacity of up to 5000 pounds on 20-inch wheels), while a 2-inch accessory hitch is available for $200 to allow you to attach your racks for bicycles, skis, snowboards, or whatever accessories you may have.
A base configuration Model X 75D comes in at $80,000 with delivery in June, while a fully-optioned Model X P90D with Ludicrous Speed Upgrade can tip the scales all the way up over $150,000 with delivery as soon as May.
