Tesla [NSDQ: TSLA] has already broken the ice for electric cars in the U.S.—and in the world, thanks to its all-electric (and thrilling) Tesla Roadster.

But the Roadster alone, which is now out of production, doesn't make much of a business model. For a company that raised $210 million next year and has already developed the very attractive Model S luxury sedan, it has bigger aspirations.

Tesla is ramping up operations in Fremont, California, at the former GM/Toyota NUMMI plant, and it plans to make up to 20,000 Model S sedans there annually.

And now, the Model X, a sporty luxury crossover that has been in the pipeline for some time, is entering the limelight. Tesla has kept details under tight wraps. So far, we know that it's quick; that it's a seven-seater, and that the packaging flexibility of EV components allows an almost van-like interior. 

There's much more to come. Stay tuned to for the live webcast, then check back to our companion site Green Car Reports for the full details, live pictures, and related stories.
