Tesla’s Model X crossover was originally scheduled for delivery in 2013 before getting pushed to 2014.
Now, Elon Musk’s company is announcing the Model X won’t be available until the third quarter of 2015, citing “significantly more validation testing time” as the major reason for postponing delivery of the vehicle.
Here is an excerpt from Tesla’s statement on the issue:
Work continues on the finalization of Model X with the testing of Alpha prototypes and initial builds of the first Beta prototypes. Model X powertrain development is almost complete with the early introduction of Dual Motor drive on Model S. We recently decided to build in significantly more validation testing time to achieve the best Model X possible. This will also allow for a more rapid production ramp compared to Model S in 2012.
