    Just found this video of some guy who has rigged Model X with all sorts of sensors. I wonder who is paying for this, Tesla should of already done their tests... right? Be warned this video has extreme VVS (vertical video syndrome) :(
    Tesla model X test demo vehicle - YouTube
    The description says that "This car was used to do break testing by an independent testing company in Ann Arbor Michigan"

    Video was linked to yesterday, this is old. The SuperCharger venue was identified and this clearly was filmed in the late summer/early fall using a Model X mule before founder cars 1-6 were delivered on 9/29.

    So yes, all this testing was done before production.

    Agreed! Looks very much like a mule. Those look like MS front seats in that second row.

    Thanks for informing me guys. I've never seen a mule with the correct nose on before!

    I asked the guy who uploaded the video when he recorded it and he said... Screenshot_2016-01-21-08-07-43.png
    He said he recorded it mid December so could they have already delivered some X's by then?
