Inventory Model X Option Now Available On Tesla’s Website

Zach Model X behindTesla recently added a new “inventory” option on its website for those looking to purchase a Model X SUV, according to recent reports from Tesla stalkers. It should be noted, though, that the company doesn’t seem to have actually listed any yet — the option to buy that was is simply enabled.

The news was brought to my attention through a post by “ShadowR55” on the Tesla Motors Club forum, which stated: “Looks like they have finally added an inventory option on the Model X like they have had for a while with the S.”

A second comment noted: “They just added the option to view inventory to, it might take a bit for them to populate their inventory with what’s on hand. At least I hope that’s what their doing, otherwise it would be pretty useless to have an inventory option.”

While the discounts available when going with an inventory car rather than a “brand new” one usually aren’t that enormous, they are fairly substantial — so they often make a good choice for those looking to cut purchase costs somewhat. In the case of Tesla Model X, the purchase price is (of course) going to remain quite high in the coming couple of years.

So, not a bad discount … but one that still leaves a price tag well into the range that only the wealthy can afford though. Any takers?
