First Tesla Model X Seen On The Road In Beijing

A white Tesla Model X, Spotted in China by Reader Lao Wei, thank you for the pictures! It is the very first Model X seen on the road in Beijing, and most likely one of the first customer cars. The Tesla Model X was launched in May and deliveries started on June 24.

There are three variants available: the Model X 90D, the Model X P90D, and the China-only Model X P90D Signature Red edition. The 90D retails for 961,000 yuan, the P90D for 1.15 million yuan, and the Signature Red does a whopping 1.47 million yuan. That translates to $147,000, $176,000, and $225,000 respectively. A new 75D base model is on the way, it will cost about 850,000 yuan.

The China-only Signature Red edition is basically a dressed up P90D. The additions include: a unique red paint job, red brake calipers, darkened windows, standard Ludicrous Speed Upgrade, and a bunch of badges. We haven’t seen a single unit yet, not on the road, not at the stores, and not at any show. The price is probably a bit too high for what you get, even for China.

The white car here is a 90D with a massive 417 horsepower and a range of 257 miles (413 kilometer). Zero to one hundred takes just 4.4 seconds and top speed is limited at 155 miles per hour (250 km/h).

The Model X is truly a huge car, seen here parked behind a Haval H5 with a Hyunday Elantra taxi on the left.
