The Tesla Model X Draws Nearer...

Interested to know what the next Tesla EV will look like? We're officially one step closer, as Tesla has released its first teaser of the model. The teaser comes less than a week before Tesla will unveil the new crossover.

Tesla announced last month that it will officially unveil the Model X crossover on February 9. Interestingly, Inside Line reports that the unveil will take place at the Tesla LA Design Studio in Hawthorne, California and not at the Chicago Auto Show, which gets underway the day before.

Most of the Model X remains in the shadows - it is merely a teaser, after all - but we do see a grille that looks similar but perhaps a little bigger and more rounded than the grille on the Model S. We also see what appears to be a rather rounded windshield and roofline, though the latter disappears quickly into darkness.

Tesla seems to believe it's designed something more interesting than the average crossover. It has previously called the model is "pretty revolutionary for the SUV segment," and CEO Elon Musk recently tweeted that, "most cars are pretty blah. This is not." The latter sounds like pure hype, but "pretty revolutionary" for an SUV is the type of statement that we'd expect to see backed up by something tangible, though it could just be unadulterated marketing speak too.

While we can only guess about what the rest of the X looks like, we do know that it will be based on the Model S platform. It will offer up to three rows of seating and should therefore be among the most versatile electric vehicles in terms of interior space.

For those that don't intend to be in Hawthorne on February 9, Tesla will web cast the Model X debut at Teslamotors.com. The event will take place at 7 p.m. PST.
