The Model X, introduced in 2015, is Tesla’s largest vehicle. A full-size SUV, the Model X shares its underpinnings with Tesla’s Model S sedan. But the X is a few inches longer and wider, and about 10 inches taller—providing a lot more space and comfort. The SUV comes standard as a five-seater but can be expanded for either six or seven passengers. The electric SUV’s cargo volume is 88 cubic feet, which is quite generous among luxury midsize SUVs.
In 2020, the Tesla Model X is offered with two powertrain configurations. The Long-Range Plus version starts at about $85,000, providing an estimated 351 miles of range, with acceleration from zero-to-60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. Tesla drivers can add around $20,000 to the price to upgrade to the Performance edition, which cuts the time to 60 mph to a blistering 2.6 seconds, but reduces the driving range to 305 miles on a single charge.
The Model X’s most prominent design feature is its falcon doors—making for dramatic scenes as the doors rise up and over the car while passengers get in and out. The cabin is high-tech but not ultra-luxe. With the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds and robust Autopilot features, the Tesla Model X is arguably the most capable EV on the road today.
