Almost a full year since we last set eyes on Tesla’s electric SUV, the Model X is finally here. CEO Elon Musk unveiled the car at an event last night in California, revealing an awesome new vehicle with a slightly less awesome price.

The Model X is currently available in two main configurations. There’s the baseline 90D model, which starts at $132,000 and boasts a 257 mile range, 155 mph top speed and the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. For$142,000 you can buy the P90D edition, which boasts even faster acceleration.

Musk previously said he also plans to offer a slightly more affordable version of the Model X. Even that version of the new car will cost about $5,000 more than the Model S, and the company still hasn’t said when it will be available.

The Model X boasts a pretty awesome design, with Falcon Wing doors for the rear seats that open straight up, a huge panoramic windshield, an aerodynamic body and a roomy interior that seats up to seven people. Of course, this is a Tesla so if it also comes with all the high-tech extras you expect. That includes automatic keyless entry, sensors to help with parking and seeing in your blind spot, heated side mirrors, and more.

You can reserve the Model X now on Tesla’s website.
