[MUSIC] Now, let's move on to the car itself. What's cool and fun about the car? Doors and windows. Okay. [APPLAUSE] So, you're obviously familiar with the falcon wing door. What we also have is an auto presenting front door. So what it'll do is it will triangulate in my position to take that I am moving towards the front door, it will open the front door without me touching anything. I will sit down and it will close the door, like an invisible chauffeur. It's something that we worked very hard on is a windshield that's a panoramic windshield. So it's come up and over and feels like a helicopter cockpit when you're driving. So it gives you unbelievable visibility and it's really- it's transformative in the driving experience. So open these doors. [BLANK_AUDIO] [APPLAUSE] Originally, we were trying to solve a problem, which is, how do you access the third row if you have child seats in the second row? You basically just press the button. The seats would go forward and I can step directly in. [BLANK_AUDIO] So, it's also important that if you have say a child seat here, that instead of having to cantilever Your kid out in front. And sort of put them basically into a small hole. You can actually just stand right here. You can actually step into the car if you want. And you can just put your child down in the child seat. It makes a huge difference in terms of back strain and comfort. So we're going to open the gull-wing doors. Where there's barely enough room to squeeze between the two cars. [APPLAUSE] Not only is the seat, I think Probably the best looking second seat, that's a superlative ever. But it actually provides more functionality because you have a flat floor and you can stow somethings. So if you got a backpack or a laptop or a handbag you can stow that under the seat instead of having it at your feet. Let's see what the Model S can really carry. [APPLAUSE] The Model S is capable of towing 5,000 pounds. [APPLAUSE] [LAUGH] Up to 5,000 pounds, while carrying seven people and quite a lot of luggage. Even the standard version of the model X has quite high performance. So the standard version 90D has got a 257 mile range, all-wheel drive of course, and gets to sixty miles per hour in 4.8 seconds. And then the P90D ludicrous mode. [APPLAUSE] I mean, this goes so fast it's wrong. 0-60, and this is an SUV and it will do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds. [MUSIC]
