While much pricier than its upcoming $35,000 Model 3 sedans, Tesla's Model X crossovers fit the bill for electric car enthusiasts that need a little more space. That dream is a little easier to achieve with the new $74,000 Model X 60D, which doesn't go quite as far as the old baseline X 75D but costs $9,000 less.The new model's 60kwh battery gives it an EPA-estimated 200-mile range, which is 37 miles less than its bigger cousin. Otherwise it performs just like the 75D with a top speed of 130 mph and acceleration of 0-60 in 6.0 seconds. Given that Tesla has recently announced slightly cheaper car models that limits battery capacity behind a costly software update, the company could be doing the same and introducing the 60D as a code-crippled version of its longer-range predecessor, wonders Autoblog. Regardless, you can order the newest Model X on Tesla's site and get it by September.
