The first Tesla Model X full-electric SUVs have hit the road this week, and we got a a little time to shake it down all the way to 80 MPH in the company parking lot.

A Tesla product planner named Richard was kind enough to ride shotgun with me, show me some features, and keep me from tearing off into the sunset never to be seen again.
