Unfortunately just a concept, but this is probably the only thing that would even be in the same league as Model X:

Don't understand why it has such a big grille.
Hey, the Eagle was a beauty queen compared to some of AMC's other offerings (Pacer/Gremlin)Someone did do this sooner - it was the AMC Eagle. It was ugly as sin then, and it still is.
Feh. My parent's early 70's Olds Vista Cruiser had it (if you watch National Lampoon's Vacation, it's the car Clark trades in on the "Family Truckster" at the beginning). :smile:But it had wood paneling! Ahead of its time.
I think you might be alone. They're both cars, I'll give you that.
I would agree with that. I also find the big'ol black 'fake grille' on ModelS/X damages what is otherwise a superb exterior aesthetic. :| The worst part is it, presumably, is an attempt to keep the same familiar 'look' as a standard grilled car. But why!!
And yes if other car companies were smart they'd partner with Tesla and take advantage of all their patents. All new vehicles, worldwide, could be electric in 5 years. But other companies aren't smart.
My point was that a car-SUV hybrid in the form of basically a high-riding car has been done and proportionally it looked like a mess. That, at least to me, looks like what is being done with this concept, hence my comparison. I don't know if an n of 2 makes me necessarily alone on this.
