The plug-in electric crossover is based on the same platform as the Model S sedan (which Tesla says it will go into full production this summer), but the X is wider and actually has some styling cues that make it look like a DeLorean, such as its “falcon wings” that are gullwings that fold up.

Tesla says that its new Mode X is supposed to be priced at about $60,000 to $80,000, which is the same as its Model S sedan.
