Tesla Motors has just released their electric SUV to the market, and audiences are buzzing about the Model X.

The company held an official release event on Tuesday, September 29 at the Tesla factory in Fremont, California with host Elon Musk. He covers the latest developments within automotive technology with the release of the Model X.

“It is incredibly important we move to a sustainable world, and the sooner we do it, the better it is.” – Elon Musk

In an era of rapid growth within the renewable energy sector, many automotive critiques and car companies will be looking to outpace Tesla in the clean energy movement.

“Any kind of car can go electric.” – Elon Musk

Recently, Volkswagen has seen a severe backlash for producing automobiles that generate an excess of carbon emissions. In return, the companies stock has dropped over %30 from its price before the news hit that the company would not be able to release their new vehicles due to Volkswagen creating software to lower diesel cars’ emissions during inspections.

This is important because Tesla Motor’s stock is up this week. The investors that were supporting a fossil fuel industry is experiencing a rude awakening that politicians and scientists have been warning the public about for years.

Fortune Magazine has stated that: between the Model S and the Model X, Tesla plans to ship between 50,000 and 55,000 cars this year. Meeting that goal could be difficult because it requires increasing production of two cars at the same time at the Fremont factory.

“What is most important for a car, is safety.” – Elon Musk

In addition to helping curb carbon emissions, the Model X is designed with safety features that will help save lives on the road.

Every part of Model X is designed with safety as a first priority.

The floor-mounted battery lowers the center of gravity so that the risk of rollover is almost nonexistent. The battery structure strengthens Model X against side impact intrusions. And without a gasoline engine, the large front trunk acts as a giant impact-absorbing crumple zone.
