Tesla has lifted the lid on its 2016 Model X, offering pricing for the entry-level 60D variant ahead of a wider announcement for the entire range.

Australian customers will be able to get into the Model X 60D from a highly specific $122,812.20 before on road costs, meaning that, depending on your state or territory, the Model X could be on the road for between $123,958.20 and $131,650.84.

A full announcement regarding standard features and specifications for the local market is yet to be made, but the Model X 60D will provide a driving range of over 350km, and a 0-100km sprint time of 6.2 seconds.

The launch pricing makes the Model X 60D $4635 more expensive (before on-roads) than its Model S equivalent, with a similar pricing premium expected across the model range.

While standard features are yet to be revealed for Australia, overseas customers are offered powered front seats, seating for seven, a 17.0-inch touchscreen interface, tyre pressure monitoring, powered tailgate and powered, roof-hinged “falcon wing” rear doors, and 12 airbags.

Model X buyers are also granted access to Tesla’s Supercharger network, allowing free fast-charging at charging stations spaced out between Melbourne and Brisbane, and set to expand even further.

As with other members of the Tesla family the D designation in the name stands for dual motor, with front and rear electric motors providing all-wheel-drive ability (each providing 193kW and a combined 525Nm of torque).

Although not yet confirmed, but certainly likely to appear in Australia, other Model X variants include the progressively more powerful 75D and 90D, and topped by the high performance P90D, capable of sling-shotting the Model X from 0-100 km/h in a supercar-like 3.4 seconds when optioned with Tesla’s Ludicrous package.

Launch timing is yet to be confirmed, but interested buyers can find out more at their local Tesla Store ahead of deliveries that are expected to begin before the end of the year.
