Tesla Model S

Tesla’s model portfolio will be expanded with the addition of a third electric vehicle called the Tesla Model X, which will be an SUV. The Model X joins the existing Tesla Roadster as well as the yet to be released Tesla Model S sedan, which is itself still about 2 years from production.

The Tesla Model X SUV will be revealed later this year, and CEO Elon Musk promises it will be way “cooler” than any SUV or minivan. It only makes sense to sell an SUV model alongside the Model S sedan as it would be quite easy to develop a crossover SUV body on a sedan’s platform, and Americans as you know are mad about the SUV bodystyle.

Why hasn’t anyone hasn’t put the Lotus APX into production as some kind of EV SUV yet?
