Car lovers who want to have a slice of the Tesla Model X received good news on Tuesday. After opening the pre-selling phase, first customers who booked a unit can now choose the colors of their Model X, what sizes of wheels they want and how fast they want the crossover utility vehicle to be.
The much-awaited Tesla Model X can now be reserved, although this is not visible on their website, according to Bloomberg.
The Model X Signature series, the first few units to be produced and released that contain more options for clients, is now out for early reservation. This is almost the same as how Tesla first released Model S, with 1,000 units produced as ‘Signature’ units.
The Tesla Model X Signature will have the following specs:
– 90 kWh battery life

The excitement for the Model X will have to pave the way for the reduction in the Model S sedan production. Bloomberg reports that Elon Musk announced it may mean the original target of 55,000 units will be slimmed down to just 50,000.
The Model X will be released by the end of September.
