Tesla is quietly pushing back the start of production for their next model, the Model X.

Originally Tesla said production of the Model X crossover would begin this year, with sales beginning in early 2014. However in a filling with Securities and Exchange Commission, Tesla push back the production date to 2014.

"We currently plan to start production of Model X in late 2014. We anticipate that we will make Model X available with 60 kWh and 85 kWh battery pack options, with pricing of each version similar to those of a comparably equipped Model S. We currently intend to target an annual production rate of approximately 10,000 -15,000 cars per year from our Tesla Factory," Tesla said in their filling.

So why the delay for the Model X? Tesla spokeswoman Shanna Hendriks told the Los Angeles Times the company is focusing on the production of the Model S, which is expected to reach 20,000 units this year.

Went on a road trip from LA to SF over the weekend and saw Model S's everywhere, including on I-5 at every Supercharger station. The solar-powered stations look very futuristic... car's not bad either.
