|By:, SA News Editor

Any way you slice it Tesla Motors (TSLA +1.6%) needs to sell a decent number of Model X SUVs to meet what the market is factoring in for the automaker's future revenue, but the company appears to be off to a good start.

The automaker unveiled a prototype of the Model X - including the crossover's DeLorean-style falcon doors - last weekend at a highly-attended event in San Jose. (Model X slideshow)

Tesla says it has received 6K orders already for the SUV which is expected to be priced between $70K and $90K.
