Tesla has finally slapped a price on its long-awaited Model X.

Before delivery charges, it’ll cost buyers $80,000, says Tesla—which is about $5,000 more than the cheapest version of the older Model S.

The Model X is an SUV, compared to the lighter Model S sedan, so it has a slightly shorter range. The Model X can travel 220 miles per charge, compared to 240 miles. The new model, which was launched in September, includes a host of futuristic elements: falcon-wing doors that swing upwards, HEPA-grade air filters, detection systems that automatically apply brakes in an emergency, and a panoramic windshield.

But don’t expect to see it on the road anytime soon. According to Tesla’s (TSLA) website, the estimated delivery date for reservations is the second half of 2016.
