Has any research been done to determine what the key benefit of the Tesla Model X is that people are waiting for?
More and more I am hearing from people that one distinctive element is going to put the Model X on the map and for good reason. No other EV by any other manufacturer has this feature so if you need this, you will surely need to wait for this car to hit the market.
What am I talking about? No it is not the Gullwing Doors! It’s not a 60 inch navigation screen, on the insanity button, but it is something that truly would make the Tesla X unique. If you live in the Northeast or any mountain area that has snow, you know what I’m talking about. The Tesla X’s 4 wheel drive is what people have been asking me for in an EV for over 5 years.
Now why do people ask me for this? It’s an energy drain, it more expansive to produce and will cut down the range! As an EV driver of 8+ years, cutting off range to make sure all wheels are propelling the car seems stupid however the last two winters here in NJ has made me appreciate the people that want 4 wheel drive. As stated in previous articles, I live on a hill and getting up the driveway with eco tires on a snowy day leaves you seriously questioning Eco low rolling resistance tires.
The 4 wheel drive treat that the Tesla X will be, will surely fill a void that is currently missing from the current EV fleet of cars! Here is video of the Tesla X spotted testing back in January.
