Tesla Motors says two upcoming software updates should fix persistent glitches with the futuristic rear doors on its Model X SUV.

The Model X, which went on sale last fall, has ``falcon-wing'' doors that open upward and then swing out. Owners of the $80,000 SUV have complained that the doors don't always open or close.

At Tesla's shareholder meeting in Mountain View on Tuesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said software updates coming later this month and next month should fix the problem.

Musk said the software that controls the doors has been difficult to refine, and Tesla should have saved some of its trickier features for future versions of the Model X.

Tesla had delivered around 2,600 Model Xs at the end of the first quarter.
