In an interview with Bloomberg, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the Model X SUV which was first detailed in 2012 and was scheduled to begin production late last year, is now been delayed until 2015.
Musk gave several reasons for the delay such as, a need to focus on distribution of the Model S, and his own personal gripes with the design of the Model X prototypes.
The company will also have to boost battery production to be able to meet demand, before they can release an SUV. Musk said:
"It's damn hard to make an SUV... that is beautiful and yet incredibly functional at the same time. It's a harder design problem than the Model S."
Currently Musk seems focused on completing the design of the Model X and moving ahead with his plans for the giga battery factory, which would help the team produce enough batteries for the next several years.
