Am I the only one who thinks the Tesla Model X is a move in the wrong direction?
Yesterday Tesla revealed the details of its expensive Model X SUV. I went online and searched to see what people think about this release and found this interesting question posted in one of the auto discussion boards. I think the person who asks the question has a good point. Do you think so too?
"Tesla announced the new "signature series" SUV model X. It starts at $134,000 and features most notably falcon doors and a 240 mile range. However to me that seems like a step in the wrong direction.
"Elon Musk wants electric cars to become the main stream way of transportation over gas. They already announced the Model E which is supposed to be the "cheap" option however how are they going to make electric mainstream by coming out with these high priced models? If they want to get more Teslas on the road why come out with a higher priced one? Plus at that price range I can't imagine people would choose an SUV over stuff like the S-Class.
"The only thing I can think of is they are trying to compete with Porsche but still this doesn't seem like the right step, at least to me. Anyone care to give me a reason to not think that? Anyone feel the same way?"
