The Tesla brand has made electric vehicles desirable choices for luxury-car shoppers, and this is especially evident with the popularity of the marque’s Model X. Handsomely crafted and supremely efficient, the Tesla Model X melds SUV utility and premium content with a modern electric powertrain.
Tesla’s Model X debuted in 2016, and it represents the brand’s first entry into the popular SUV segment. Both inside and out, the Model X showcases the futuristic design that has become a Tesla hallmark. The Model X’s electric powertrain gives it blistering acceleration and range that’s easy to live with, and this SUV also provides a cabin that’s roomy enough for those seeking family transportation.
The Model X is a midsize crossover SUV geared toward luxury-car shoppers, and it can be configured to seat five, six or seven passengers. All-wheel drive and a single-speed automatic transmission are standard.
With sheet metal that reflects a sporty and clean aesthetic, the Model X is instantly recognizable as a Tesla. Standard LED headlights sit at the base of a rounded hood. In back, this Tesla shows off a standard power liftgate and wraparound taillights. Notably, the Model X comes with rear doors that open upward like the gullwing doors seen in exotic sports cars. These doors allow you to easily access the Model X in tight parking spaces.
This Tesla’s cabin offers low-key luxury with a minimalist flavor. It’s notably less extravagant than the cabins of rival models, but its design has a modernity that will appeal to certain shoppers. The optional third row can be folded to accommodate cargo. Due to its electric powertrain, the Model X offers both a front and rear trunk, and total cargo capacity stands at an impressive 88.1 cubic feet.
Electric vehicles provide instant torque delivery that translates into wondrous acceleration, and the Model X is no exception. It offers bracing quickness that adds excitement to mundane commutes. Though this SUV has hefty dimensions, it feels poised on the road, and it handles like a much smaller vehicle. The Model X’s suspension does an adequate job of keeping harshness out of the cabin, but other SUVs deliver a smoother ride quality. Horsepower for this generation of the Model X starts at 328 and climbs upward of 500. Also, models in this generation offer more than 200 miles of driving range, which makes the range anxiety that comes with electric vehicles less of an issue.
There’s a generous list of standard features on board the Model X, and base models come with amenities such as keyless entry, navigation and forward collision mitigation. The options list includes things like ventilated front seats, leather or vegan-friendly simulated leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel and larger wheels.
The earliest Model X SUVs came with a fixed second row that didn’t fold to accommodate cargo. Upgrades made over the course of this SUV’s model cycle include the introduction of fold-flat second-row seats.
Its generous range makes the Model X a more mainstream choice than most electric vehicles, and it is often cross-shopped against hybrid and gas-only models like the BMW X6, Porsche Cayenne, Lexus RX Hybrid and Audi Q7. These are all great choices, but the Model X stands apart due to its peerlessly quick acceleration.
