Tesla in mid-July announced the entry-level 60D option for the Model X. Its arrival helped bring the price of entry for the electric SUV down to $75,200.

Just three months later, the 60D is no longer available, meaning the entry-level Model X is now the 75D, which starts at $86,700. Both figures include Tesla’s standard $1,200 destination charge.

Tesla has quickly dropped slow-selling options in the past, and the same is likely true for the 60D option on the Model X. Crucially, it allows the automaker to allocate its limited production capacity to more profitable models.

Beyond the 75D, Model X buyers can choose from 90D and P100D options. The 90D starts at $96,700 and the P100D at $136,700. Once again both figures include destination.

The P100D is the current range-topper for Tesla. Also available on the Model S sedan, the P100D option adds a massive 100-kilowatt-hour battery, which Tesla says gives the Model X an EPA-rated range of 289 miles. It also makes the vehicle the quickest accelerating SUV ever produced, with a quoted 0-60 mph time of just 2.9 seconds. Top speed is 155 mph.

2016 Tesla Model X 75D – $86,700, 237 mi
2016 Tesla Model X 90D – $96,700, 257 mi
2016 Tesla Model X P100D – $136,700, 289 mi (estimate)
