Tesla Model X Spied On California Highway

Tesla’s pure electric SUV is nearing launch and there is apparently at least one cruising around California. The video above shows a slightly camouflaged Model X near Palo Alto. The SUV looks good even with all the design elements covered up.

Road testing unreleased vehicles is standard operating procedure for automakers. Likewise, capturing pictures and videos is a fun sport for enthusiasts. Generally more cladding is used the farther the vehicle is from launching. In this case, since the Model X was already announced, Tesla likely just covered up the bits of trim not yet finalized on the production model.

The Model X is said to hit dealerships in the second half of 2015 after its launch date was pushed back several times.

This isn’t the first time the Model X was spied in the wild but the video above should give those who pre-ordered a Model X hope that eventually, one day, hopefully sometime this year, Tesla will actually start shipping the electric SUV.
