Tesla Motors Sizzle Reel - YouTube
Tesla Motors just posted this video on their YouTube channel 2 minutes ago. This must be the closest thing to an official Tesla Motors commercial.
Love the Model X tease.
Though it is almost alarming to see a car without (significant) side mirrors.
It's nice to see that they gave a nod to the Roadster, even if it is the only untitled thing in the video.
Clips from 1m38s to 1m41s: does anyone have an opinion as to whether that FWD unit is going to compromise footwell space? My wife raves about how much more foot/legroom she has in the S compared even to our F-350. There certainly is no argument that frunkspace in any Tesla AWD will be less than in the S, as all have been long aware.
I wouldn't think the front motor would eat up any leg room. It seems to occupy most of the rear cubby area of the frunk though as you indicated.
I'm sorry to read it's so painful to you......
Except if it is MX - the amount of space lost in 'microwave' area will be more than offset because MX has significantly taller profile, and frunk will be much deeper than in MS because of it. :smile:

Does the front motor look different or is just the angle? It appears they have made changes.

As far as I can tell this vid is just made up from clips of other vids we've already seen. (The Model X bits are from two years ago.). Makes for a nice montage.
I think that drive units shown on both pictures are the same. Note that the reduction gear on second picture appears to be somewhat recessed when looking slightly down from the rear - the angle shown in the video. If one looks carefully at the picture extracted from the video, it appears that the narrow recessed part is the view of the reduction gear from this angle, and the box on the left is power electronics unit.
