    Model X now online via US site for builds and pricing.

    $80,000 for the basic model, the 70D version, conversion today via XE = £53,064.49

    Cheapest US price found so far with incentives is $66,500 = £44,112.56 (Federal Tax $7500 + Colorado State $6000)

    Keeping in mind sales Tax in the US and our VAT would a base price of say £49,995 inc UK VAT before any UK incentives be near the mark for the 70D versions? 90D and other models get very expensive in my view. If so would there be many takers for this the Model Xs cheapest option?

    I've just been approaching the Model X pricing in a different way. I've had a look at the Model S pricing on the US and UK website to see if there is a constant ratio and found there sort of is, though it gets less favourable as the cost goes up:

    US Price in USD UK Price in GBP Ratio UK/US Price
    70D 75,000 55,000 0.73
    85D 85,000 63,200 0.74
    P85D 105,000 79,900 0.76
    P85D maxed out 138,000 107500 0.78
    So taking prices from this post on the Tesla Motors forum it gives the following approximate Model X prices, by taking a suitable ratio from the table above.

    US Price USD UK Price GBP
    MX 70D Base 80,000 59,200
    MX 70D maxed out 108,950 82,800
    MX 90D maxed out 121,950 93,900
    MX P90D maxed out 151,950 120,000
    If we're still getting the £5000 grant when the Model X arrives in the UK then the prices in the table above can have that subtracted.

    Finally, this is all rather rough and ready, with various inaccuracies, so I'd like to be clear that no one has my permission to quote anything from this post, or use the numbers, outside the Tesla Motors Club forum.

    Elon has said there will be $5000 (£3300) difference in price between Model S and Model X like for like. Option prices likely the same. So spec a Model S add £4000 and you should be very close.

    I did the same analysis for the Roadster Vs Model S before the latter arrived in the uk and I'd say Mr Musk's comments are accurate. MW
