Until the Tesla bakkie arrives, we won’t know if Elon Musk’s company is capable of building a vehicle that can handle any serious off-road abuse. In the meantime Mo Aoun has created these renderings that look pretty realistic.
They show a Model X that’s been transformed into an off-roader that according to Carscoops ‘wouldn’t look out of its depth at the Dakar Rally’.
Most body panels of the electric SUV have been retained except for the front bumper and the vehicle sports a set of huge tyres and raised suspension, naturally. The new nose also has an integrated bull bar and two steel tow hooks.
To complete the off-road transformation, the Model X includes a steel cage on the roof with a LED lightbar, flared wheel arches and a spare wheel resting on a bracket over the rear window.
