Despite it’s hefty price tag, sales of the 2015 Tesla Model X are rather impressive, according to Tesla Motors Club data.
The club is tracking Model X reservations and reports the number has crept over 13,000 units worldwide, with 10,000 reservations being made in North America.
The numbers are based on the sequence number of reservation holders across the world rather than solid data from Tesla so any future Tesla owners that updated from a regular production model to a Signature may have been counted twice.
These are good numbers considering the Model X will likely cost more than the already pricey sedan. The Model X features an all-wheel drive layout similar to Subaru and lush “falcon doors.” The X features a larger frontal area meaning its drag will be better and produce 10 percent greater energy consumption. It will also be taller than the Model S.
The Model X prototype is currently being tested in California.
