The Model X is expected to arrive at buyers’ homes within 6 months, assuming Tesla sticks to its planned schedule. The all-electric SUV will be the company’s second model, in addition to the Model S sedan. Details about the launch are thin on the ground, and Tesla seems reluctant to engage in publicity events, writes John Voelcker for Venture Beat.

Video latest in a series of spy shots

Spy shots and videos of the Model X are currently the only source of information on the progress of the sports utility vehicle. A Twitter account named ModelXnews was created a month ago, and has published four photos of camouflaged Model X test vehicles over the past three weeks.

The account was previously unknown but now has almost 2,000 followers, and its administrators are clearly very quick with their camera when they spot the elusive Model X on the roads of California. You can find photos here and here.

A website of the same name has published large amounts of photos of the Model X, some of which look staged, and others have possibly been given the Photoshop treatment. The spy shots are also published on the site, which only feeds the anticipation for the release of the new Tesla Model X.

Tesla fans eagerly awaiting Model X release

Another fan site called Teslarati published a YouTube video Model X caught testing in the area near the company’s headquarters in Palo Alto, and it can be found in the Sightings and Spy Shots gallery on the site.

Tesla Motors headquarters are located around 25 miles from its factory in Fremont, so spotting a Model X here would make sense. Fremont is currently being adapted in order to produce Model X vehicles in 2017.

As well as preparing for the release of the Model X, Tesla recently announced some updates for the Model S, which will go some way to reducing the “range anxiety” experienced by drivers of electric vehicles, as well as a self-driving autopilot mode.
