12,133. That’s the number of Tesla Model X reservations that have been placed so far, and with production still a year away, that number could easily go up. The third vehicle to bear the Tesla badge could be its biggest hit yet, especially in China, which isn’t included in these numbers.
A few important footnotes to point out. The 12,133 reservations marked by members of the Tesla fan club message board are for one of two versions of the Model X; the early-production, fully-loaded Signature series, and the regular Production run that will follow. To reserve a SIgnature series Model X, you’ve got to put down $40,000 with your reservation, rather than the standard $5,000 deposit. The Model X will come with all-wheel drive standard, making it a little more costly than the Model S.
