Australian pricing & availability announced for Tesla’s Model X SUV

A couple of years after the Tesla Motors Model S all-electric luxury sedan launched into the Australian market, we’re also getting its newer, larger sibling. Based on the same chassis and electric motor and lithium ion battery setup, the Tesla Model X will cost roughly the same price, with the most basic twin-motor all-wheel drive Model X 60D starting at a $111,900 RRP. And it’ll be in Australia before Christmas.

Luxury Car Tax, registration, compulsory third-party insurance and stamp duty costs drive the price of the Model X up to $123,958.20 in ACT, $125,966.20 in QLD, $127,113.05 in NT, $128,307.23 in TAS, $128,402.20 in SA, $129,255.20 in NSW, $130,087.20 in VIC and $131,650.84 in WA. these prices are all within $5000 of the price of an equivalent Model S 60D, and keeps Tesla’s local pricing in line with its US parent, where the Model S 60D’s $US71,000 price is closely shadowed by the Model X 60D’s $US74,000.

Dare to dream…

Gizmodo does an excellent job of breaking down all four variants of the new Model X along with applicable taxes  and state charges. I’m not buying one or about to anytime soon but for those of you with a spare $100k+ to splash about, this is the article for you.
