Tesla Motors Inc Model X fans now have an opportunity to buy a second-hand almost new P90D, which the owner is offering after driving it for just 500 miles. The car is available to buy, but this potential sale has a qualifier to it.
Model X – for resale
Presently, there are more than 40,000 Model X reservation holders, and the Model X offered for resale is a special Signature edition for which buyers had to wait too long to get. For these two reasons, the price of the car has gone up with a convenience fee added to it. The surcharge is 60% over stocker or the best offer.
MSRP has been listed at $134,000, but the seller is requesting $215,000 for it. This is higher than Tesla’s original car pricing by $80,800 or nearly the MSRP of a base Model X with 70 kilowatt-hour battery. Giving reason for selling the coveted car, seller said he is not in need of an SUV at present.
“The car is brand new. Only 500 miles on it. No problems, dents or scratches. The reason I’m selling is because I don’t really need an SUV right now. The car has an MSRP of $134,200. Asking $215,000 or best offer,” reads the description of the car.
Tesla Motors Inc Model X offered for sale has many features worth mentioning like it comes in the rare Signature red color, has black Nappa leather interior with black Alcantara headliner along with several other amenities that include the largest battery.
Tesla sues German ‘falcon doors’ supplier
In another news related to the Model X, Tesla has filed a federal lawsuit against a German auto parts maker – Hoerbiger Automotive Comfort Systems LLC – who failed at supplying the signature ‘falcon wing’ doors for the Model X. Tesla has accused the supplier of misrepresenting its ability to design the doors, and this forced the firm to change the supplier at the last minute, which resulted in delays.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court of Northern California, and aims at stopping the supplier from charging more payment from the EV firm after it cut its ties with the supplier in May 2015. Tesla is demanding the court to declare it has not breached any contracts, and order supplier pay damages and attorney fees, says a report from the WSJ.
Tesla Motors Inc claimed it made payment to Hoerbiger for developing the vertically rising side doors for the Model X. Unfortunately, Hoerbiger could not produce a prototype between February 2014 and March 2015 that could pass Tesla’s engineering standards. Falcon-wing doors are one among signature features of the Model X, which has a base price of about $81,000.
