The Tesla Model X is the MPV version of the Model S electric car using similar chassis, drivetrain and suspension components, combined in a more practical body.
The Model X packs an electric motor with a 60, 75 or 90kWh lithium-ion battery, but exclusively powering all four wheels. This means improved grip and all-weather ability. The electric engine provides quiet and smooth acceleration with spectacular performance (0-62mph in 3.2 seconds) in Ludicrous mode. Yet you can enjoy 250-mile range, which is impressive for an electric car.
Space age interior design comes courtesy of a huge tablet control interface and a pair of gullwing rear doors that give excellent access. The Model X is a seven-seater and, with the battery pack housed in the floor, there is plenty of room for occupants and two boots.
Equipment levels are good with all cars coming with LED headlights, all-round parking sensors, reversing camera, keyless entry, powered boot door and a huge 17-inch infotainment system.
If you’re looking for a slightly more affordable electric SUV, Tesla is planning to launch a new baby Model X in the near future. Read our Tesla Model Y price, specs and release date article for full details.
