With models coming out at the end of this year and full production in 2015 shouldn't Tesla have a 'Design Studio' link by now for the X similar to what the S has?
They haven't announced a final design or pricing yet.
I realize that, but at this point if they plan on having the X out by 2014 then shouldn't those details hammered out by now?
Has Tesla said anything about when they'd have pricing and features available by?
From the main banner on the page for Model X, it said deliveries are in the 3rd and 4th quarter of next year?
It says Summer 2015 for NEW reservations.
If they still plan on having any out by year's end then they really should have all that stuff (pricing, features) finalized by now.
I'm going to assume (based on nothing but guesswork) that the configuration system will set up about October 1, 2014.
This will be for Signature owners who may only have 1 or two choices, such as "Signature Red" or "Signature Black"?
The Signature vehicles will be built over the October - December timeframe and delivered in the December 2014 - January 2015 timeframe.
This will give Tesla's 2014 Yearly report at least a few Model X deliveries.
For other reservation holders, I guess (again, only a guess) that the configuration site will be updated around December 1 for those customers who already have reservations. Since there are about 10-15,000 reservations currently, Tesla will build similar models together (most expensive first) and deliver over the January - June timeframe.
New reservations (April 2014 and forward), will have about 12-15 month timeframe between order and delivery. This time will go down as 2015 goes on and efficiencies improve the build rate.
(remember, this is ONLY a guess)
Any guess is better than none at all.
Realistically, Model X deliveries won't start until March at the absolute earliest. Sure Tesla may roll out a few early test models to a few select individuals, but significant deliveries won't start until well into 2015. I wouldn't expect the Design Studio to be on-line until January-February at the earliest.
This is from the fact that I read somewhere that Model X was expected in Q2 2015 and new deliveries are advertised as Summer 2015.
I hope I'm wrong and it comes out earlier!
