Tesla has announced that the Model X Design Studio configurator for general production cars is now available online. Signature reservation holders are being invited by the company to choose the options, color and equipment levels for their 70D, 90D or P90D Model X.

As  previously mentioned by Elon via Twitter, the base price of a Model S 70D will start at $80,000 — exactly $5,000 more than a Model S 70D sedan. 

Tesla has provided no information on when invitations to the Model X Design Studio will be rolled out to general reservations holders. Tesla has provided no information on when invitations to the Model X Design Studio will be rolled out to general reservations holders. The Verge notes that the Tesla factory is still working through the backlog of orders for the well equipped Signature Series vehicles promised to those who put down a large deposit as far back as 2 years ago. Production is expected to begin in January, 2016 and ramp up as Tesla continues to reduce its supply constraints by producing critical components in-house.

The Model X 70D will have a range of 220 miles and be able to make a quick dash to 60 mph in a respectable 6.0 seconds. With the larger 90 kWh battery, range increases to 257 miles and 0-60 acceleration drops to 4.8 seconds. Range for the performance oriented P90D will be 250 miles, while acceleration drops another full second to a blistering 3.8 seconds. Make that 3.2 seconds if Ludicrous mode is selected.

Assuming every Model X costs $5,000 more than a comparable Model S, the Model X 90D should start at $93,000 and the Model X P90D at $113,000.
