Tesla Model X: Test Drives, Auto Shows, and Fashion Week

Posted on February 17, 2016 by Matt Pressman

It's happening. The Tesla Model X is beginning to roll out in a big way. Most recently, Tesla has been featuring the Model X at test drive events, auto shows, and (soon) fashion week. Yesterday, Tesla Motors was featured extensively on CNBC with some in-depth coverage of a test drive event in Chicago for Model X reservation holders. The CNBC team worked hard to ask the tough questions -- but, the Model X reservation holders showed their commitment to the brand and excitement they're feeling towards the new Tesla Model X.

We've compiled the CNBC video segments below. These videos feature a wide range of Model X reservation holders including one who flew all the way up from Florida (video #3) just to take a test drive, and, a 91-year-old reservation holder (video #4) who appears to be as happy as a teenager to get his Model X. These videos really capture the excitement and loyalty Tesla customers feel towards the "driving electric" movement...

TESLA AT FASHION WEEK

Next up, Tesla Motors premiered a "teaser" video in order to showcase an upcoming partnership for fashion week; their youtube description notes: "From one runway to another - Tesla Motors has partnered with Neiman Marcus to bring you an up close look from New York Fashion Week 2016." And, the clip features some behind-the-scenes footage of Model X production at the Tesla factory in Fremont...

And WWD reports, "Forget Uber or Lyft — this New York Fashion Week Neiman Marcus fashion director Ken Downing has a more exclusive ride. He’s being driven around in Tesla Motors' much-hyped Model X car, which is making its debut in public streets. He has invited several fashion industry friends to ride along with him — the car has seven seats, after all — and is filming their conversations for a series of videos. 'Tesla Talks' will feature designers Wes Gordon [see below], Prabal Gurung, Rachel Zoe, and Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty of Suno. 'I’m stopped by everyone inside and outside the Tesla X wanting to know where I got it, and how to get one,' Downing remarked."

TESLA AT CANADIAN AUTO SHOW

Last, the Tesla Model X made its official auto show debut at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto this past week as well. Take a look at this revealing segment from CBC News...

If you thought that Tesla Motors was keeping the Model X under wraps, this week would prove otherwise. It appears that Tesla is ready for the Model X to take center stage for the brand... that is, until March 31st when the Model 3 debuts. In any event, we'll keep you posted as we get more visibility on the Model X as more of the vehicles get out "into the wild" -- on our end, we're definitely getting more reports that customers are receiving their "X" vehicles. Now, we just have to get ours...
