The US-based EV manufacturer, Tesla Motors is quite busy these days after the unveiling of the Model 3, giving a facelift tweak to its product titled as Model S and making some changes in the Model X. The company is replacing the base “70D” version with the “75D” model battery pack. Referring to name change, it actually means that the company is increasing the battery size from 70 kWh to 75 kWh.

With the change of battery size from 70 kWh to 75 kWh, the Model X will return an extended range from 220 miles to 237 miles. Under the hood, the Model X is packed with a dual-motor with an all wheel drive setup that can bolt from 0 – 60 mph in 6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 130 mph while the Model X P90D with ludicrous speed upgrade can make this sprint in just 3.2 seconds.

Tesla Motors started the changes to the Model X lineup just after the company announced its plans to recall around 2700 units of the electric SUV due to faults in the third-row seat. Vehicles built before March 26 are affected by this fault, as the third row seat could fold forward in case of any event of an accident.  Delighted with such a phenomenal response, CEO Elon Musk, confirmed on Twitter that Tesla Motors would enter India even before the Model 3 goes in production.

However, Musk didn't reveal the exact date, but one can expect the company in India in early 2017.
