Model X 12V?

It seems like one of the most common problems with the Model S is dying/failed 12V battery. (Not that it happens a lot, just more than most problems.)

On the Model S, the nosecone can be removed from a dead car to access 12V power terminals - but the X doesn't have one.

I realize there isn't much out there yet with just the six founders in the wild, but does anyone know how they addressed putting power on the car? Do we know if they changed the 12V battery?
