Yesterday, Elon Musk introduced the MOdel X. It comes with Falcon Doors and Bio-Weapon Defense systems. What more can you ask for from a car? This is seriously the car to want. Check it out:
The Model X is the safest SUV ever created. It is the only one with 5 stars in every safety category. There's automatic emergency breaking and side collision avoidance sensors to help prevent accidents.
The car comes with a Bio-Weapon defense to make sure air cleanliness levels in the car are comparable to that of a hospital's operating room. Musk joked that they were trying to be a leader in apocalyptic event scenarios.
Then people started saying this:
The Model X's front driver side door will automatically open as the driver walks toward it. It will also close when the driver sits down.
You can also attach accessories to it, and it can hold up to 4 bikes.
