At Tesla’s 2015 Annual Shareholder Meeting held yesterday, CEO Elon Musk has confirmed that the deliveries of the Model X will begin in late Q3 2015, i.e. in the coming three to four months. The company is currently making the final changes on its first crossover.
The CEO himself is driving the new model’s latest prototype to oversee its development. “I’m looking at the software iteration every week”, said Mr. Musk at the event. “We’re really in short strokes with getting this (Model X) to market”, he added. Moreover, the CEO boasted that “the Model X may arguably be a better SUV than the Model S as a sedan.”
Other noteworthy announcements at the event included the Autopilot mode for the Model S, for which Mr Musk himself is testing typically 2-3 builds of the software every week in his car. The improvement is gradual but progressing. Later on, the feature may be made available through a software update (in beta stage) as part of the Early Access Program.
Another highlight of the meeting was revealing the expansion plan of the Supercharger network in North America for 2016, which is depicted in the above image.
