In Brief

The famous electric carmaker unveils Model X -- the first all-electric SUV, complete with falcon wings and acceleration faster than a sports car.

Tesla Motors recently debuted the world’s first all-electric SUV — a minivan hybrid called the Model X. Inspired by the Model S sedan, the battery-powered seven-passenger vehicle can also “fly.” The car  is equipped with “Falcon Wing” doors, named after Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s Falcon rocket line, that open upward. The battery pack powers a dual electric motor and gives it a range of between 220 and 270 miles on a full charge. And finally, the Model X boasts an impressive acceleration from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.4 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than the 2012 Porsche 911.
