Tesla will delay the production of its Model X crossover sports utility Vehicle and instead focus on production of its Model S sedan.

Tesla unveiled the SUV last year and hoped to deliver them early next year. The automobile will now arrive in late 2014.

The Model X will be shaped like the Model S but will feature a large hatchback.
