Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh recently celebrated his 40th birthday and got a gift of a lifetime. The 40-year old actor got a spanking new Tesla Model X SUV as a birthday gift from his wife Genelia D'Souza. Riteish took no time in expressing his happiness on Twitter and tweeted a picture of him with the car. However, the location in the image seems to be different than India and for this reason, it is unclear at the moment that the actor will bring his Tesla to India or not. In the next slides, we tell you what is so special about the Tesla Model X.
The Tesla Model X electric SUV gets its power from two electric motors that have been mounted at each axle. With this, the Model X sprints from 0 to 100 kmph in a matter of 4.8 seconds. The torque generated with the two motors stands at an impressive 967 Nm. The combined power output of the car on the performance version is 259 hp at the front and 503 hp at the rear.
One of the most interesting visual highights of the Tesla Model X is the falcon doors that open and close vertically. Other features of the electric SUV include LED lighting with cornering function, GPS enabled air suspension system and an all-wheel-drive system.
Inside the cabin, the Tesla Model X feels quite a luxurious car. There are multiple touchscreens present that make the interiors feel upmarket and futuristic. The car also has Bluetooth wireless technology that further steps up the convenience factor.
There is also a ludicrous mode in the Tesla Model X after the activation of which, the car rockets from 0 to 100 kmph in just 2.9 seconds. The Tesla Model X comes with a top speed of 250 kmph. This speed is electronically restricted in the interest of public safety.
Prices of the Tesla Model X start at USD 73,800 in the international market that translates to Rs 47.25 lakh as per our currency. The top end model is priced at USD 1,28,300 or Rs 82.20 lakh. Tesla had announced that it will officially mark its footprints to India very soon.
