The software limited EV was released back in July and featured a 75 kWh battery pack.
In July 2016, after releasing the Model S 60, Tesla had introduced the Tesla Model X 60D as an all-electric SUV. However the vehicle was fated to have an incredibly short life-span.

It seems Tesla has quietly discontinued the Model X 60D option from its design studio. When available the Tesla Model X 60D had a software limited concept and came equipped with a 75 kWh battery pack capped at 60 kWh.
Since its discontinuation the base price of the car has also spiked by $11,000, taking the grand total to $85,000, making the update a big deal. It is still not exactly clear as to why Tesla removed the trim from its design studio so abruptly. Tesla has failed to comment on their decision.
Not many have any clue as to why Tesla took this move. Since the X 60D was nearly identical to the Model X 75D, the only difference being in the battery pack. Many are speculating the X 60D may not have been as popular as the X75D.
Besides the car wasn’t exactly the right fit for many frugal buyers and such demographics were more attracted to the Model S 60, which has a price of $66,000, according to Electrek.
Hence Tesla may have discontinued the X 60D, a mere 3 months after the debut release of the car. For now the X 75D is the only option in the crossover category left by Tesla.
The discontinuation is not the only change at Tesla this week. Tesla also released several updated designs, while removing two colors. Similarly the Smart Air Suspension was made a standard option for all versions of the Model X.
