Tesla Model X video review
Tesla brings its follow-up to the Model S in the shape of the all-electric Model X SUV priced at £64,100 for the base Model X 60D.
The Model X delivers all of the technology you'd expet from Tesla, and more with the market leading gull-wing doors for passenger access at the rear. The 60D battery pack provides an official 220 miles of range and a top speed of 130 mph and 0-60 mph completed in 6.0 seconds.
Stepping up the model range, another £7,800 buys another 11 miles EV range with the 75D, £18,300 takes the range up to 303 miles in the 90D and a staggering £53,100 gets the range-topping (in all senses) P90D capable of 336 miles on one charge and zero to sixty in 2.9 seconds (termed 'Ludicrous').
As with other Model X specifications, standard equipment includes five seats with options for six or seven seat versions, free use of the Tesla Supercharger network, regular over-the-air software upgrades, a huge panoramic glass windscreen, all-wheel drive, and Autopilot capability. Options such as self-presenting front doors, Bioweapon Defense Mode air conditioning system, smart air suspension, and a towing package are all available.
The launch of the Model X means there is now a Tesla SUV available for a similar cost of a large PHEV SUVs. The likes of Volvo's XC90 T8 Twin Engine, the BMW X5 xDrive 40d, and Audi Q7 e-tron; the Volvo very similar in price, BMW's offering a few thousand pounds cheaper, and the Audi more expensive.
The Model X is available to order now with deliveries expected in 'Early 2017'.
