PALO ALTO, California – Production of the new 2016 Tesla Model X electric SUV is “increasing exponentially,” Tesla Motors said on Sunday as it issued a report on its 2015 deliveries.
The Model X debuted in late September.
Tesla delivered 208 of them in the fourth quarter of 2015. It said 507 Model X vehicles were produced during that quarter, with the remainder to be delivered in early 2016.
“Model X deliveries are in line with the very early stages of our Model X production ramp as we prioritize quality above all else,” Tesla said.
Tesla will begin making 238 Model X SUVs per week, the company said.
Key Model X competitors include the BMW X6, Porsche Cayenne and Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
The electric start-up delivered 50,580 vehicles in 2015, including the Tesla Model S sedan.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers who are anxious to get their hands on the highly anticipated Model X received some encouraging news from Tesla.
