Tesla Model X...better have a tall garage.
 
The AWD-only Tesla Model X crossover is getting market ready. Dynamic power delivery to all the corners will be in all-time vectoring mode, on all road surfaces and conditions, adjusting multiple times each second. Besides the expected Tesla EV tech goodness, the length and wheelbase would be comparable to the Model S. Using the fashionable crossover template, the Model X is taller and have a higher profile but it's biggest segment busting feature will be the vertically swinging rear 'falcon doors'. This will make production and ready next year. Measure your garage clearance or get the contractor ready for some reno.

"Sell part of your soul to drive a minivan", what a wanker. Falcon fail, at least it seats 7, something you don't see usually in an suv unless it is aircraft carrier sized (with ironically little cargo room).

Doors go up no higher than the rear hatch, and appear to need no more space to the sides than a normal door.

"muscular sinewey feel, the athletic voice of the car". I'm gonna hurl now.

Tell me how much does it weigh, how much power does it make, how long does it make that power, what is the CDA, what is the price, then shut the hell up.

Some cases of very lower garage door opener clearances. Some just take care of it!!!

I'm holding out for the Model C.

The height doesn't seem to be much of an issue. It wasn't even a foot over the height of the man speaking, who was probably no taller than 6ft himself.

Did they say why it has gullwing doors? Seems strange to have both a conventional door and gullwing on the same car. I suppose I have had issues loading large boxes into the rear seats due to the door not opening wide enough.

..looking forward to Tesla's "cheap" EV for the common man.

Those rear doors, imagine wanting to get into the car in a hurry. Or out, for that matter.
I feel the novelty factor would wear off in the real world quite quickly.

And I just don't like the way they open and then wobble.

If Tesla makes it, I have confidence in their execution, but I knew a Soldier with Lamborghini doors that he liked so much that he wanted to sell the car, and a woman that did not purchase a car because it had problematic Lamborghini doors.

5 of the 7 passengers better be amputees. Really needs a longer wheelbase to be practical for family duty, otherwise I don't see an advantage over the rear facing S seats.
