    Tesla Model X revealed at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show

    The new Tesla Model X will be Tesla’s third car. Think of it as an AWD 7 passenger Crossover that also happens to be an electric car.

    The Tesla Model S features some unique design elements like the Falcon Doors (no not gull-winged) and the Frunk.

    If you don’t know what a frunk is just watch this video from the 2013 Detroit Auto Show to check out the newest Tesla vehicle.

    Just like the Tesla Model S the Model X also features a flat floor, a 17 inch video screen and, of course, thousands of batteries instead of a fuel tank.

    Check out this exclusive TFLcar car video as we get up close and personal with the Tesla Model X.

    Editor’s note: The other day, while I was moving past the Tesla display at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, I overheard one of our competitors say, “This would be such a hot car if someone put a 400 horsepower, twin-turbo V6 inside.” You know what? That’s an interesting assertion. That also encapsulates the overall feeling automotive journalists have regarding Tesla’s shape.

    It’s a damn good looking car.

    I have no idea how practical the “Falcon” doors are, nor do I foresee the Model S and X becoming mores accessible to the middle class, but they did a pretty good job making it look fast.
