Model X Electric SUV Is The First Tesla To Land In India

Tesla Model X Reaches India
Tesla Model X Reaches India Interior
Tesla Model X Reaches India Tesla Model X SUV takes design inspiration from
its Model S cousin and features electric powertrain with cruising range of
over 400 km on single charge Tesla, the leading American electric vehicle
maker, has long been weighing up plans to enter the Indian market. Ever
since the unveil of its entry-level Model 3, and having seen Indian big
shots showing interest, the rumours of Tesla venturing into our domestic
market in the near future refused to fade away.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter, as he often would be, to answer a
question on possible entry into India and his reply of “summer 2017” did
surprise quite a lot of people considering that Tesla does not have
dealerships and service centers and it’s yet to install a cross-country
network of superchargers to serve the customers.
However, he realised the hurdle in Make-In-India plan as it demanded 30
percent local sourcing and Tesla does not yet have any local suppliers. He
hinted at setting up Gigafactory even last year in India but despite the
best efforts by our authorities, he opted to choose the free-trade zone in
Shanghai, China to establish his fully-owned manufacturing unit.
With the electric infrastructure currently being evaluated, Indian
automakers are pushing boundaries to commercialise electric two- and
four-wheelers ahead of the planned 2030 EV Mission which wants every car
running on Indian roads to be electrified. With the uncertainty surrounding
Tesla’s debut in India, it is not surprising to see its first vehicle
reaching our shores at the Mumbai port.
Details of the intention of that particular vehicle is sparse but we have
pictures to show you and it could have been ordered by a customer too. The
Tesla Model X SUV-ish crossover was introduced back in 2015 and it is one of
the hot-sellers for the brand. The five door vehicle is fully electric
powered and is available in two different powertrain options: One being the
P90D and the other one is 90D.
Both the versions come powered by dual electric motors. The P90D gets a 259
hp of peak power producing motor at the front, while also having a 259 hp
electric motor fitted at the front. The P90D can accelerate 0 – 100 kmph in
The timing can be improved up to 3.2 seconds with the Ludicrous Speed
Upgrade package. On the other hand the 90D reaches the same mark in 4.8
seconds. Both the cars come with a top speed of 250 kmph, while the P90D
boasts 400 kilometers of cruising range.
The 90D facilitates 14 kilometers of additional cruising range compared to
the P90D. The transmission duty is done by a single speed transaxle gearbox.
Both the P90D and the 90D have an All Wheel Drive (AWD) configuration.
