The page at Model X Press Kit | Tesla Motors states: "The industry’s first auto presenting door automatically opens and closes as the driver approaches or exits Model X. Why should the driver ever need to touch the door?" I roughly understand the scenario where the drivers door opens automatically when the car senses someone approaching the door within a defined range of angles, and the car detects the fob. Elon demonstrated that at the X reveal, though as many have noted the door did not auto close. However, the statement quoted above appears to indicate that the door will automatically close when the driver seats themselves, and that the door will automatically open and then close without touching it when the driver decides to exit the vehicle. All that would be cool, assuming that sensors built into the door will prevent damage to adjacent objects or to the human entering and exiting (Elon mentioned the X doors have new sensors), but how does the door detect when the driver wants to exit if the driver does not touch the door? Unless there is a voice command for "open drivers door" (which would take longer to speak and then process and initiate the door movement than it would to simply to push it open), the driver is going to have to touch something to get the door to open. I suspect there is some hyperbole in the quoted statement above. I am skeptical that the drivers door will open without the driver touching something.
