Tesla Model X; Specifications, features and price

The Tesla Model X is a battery electric mid-size luxury crossover SUV built by Tesla, Inc. since 2015. Developed from the full-sized sedan platform of the Tesla Model S, the vehicle notably uses falcon wing doors for passenger access.

Model X is built from the ground up as an electric vehicle, with a high-strength architecture and floor-mounted battery pack that enable exceptional occupant protection and low rollover risk. Every Model X includes Tesla’s latest active safety features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, at no extra cost.

The Model X has an EPA size class as an SUV, and shares around 30 percent of its content with the Model S, half of the originally planned 60 percent, and weighs about 10 percent more. Both the Model X and Model S are produced at the Tesla Factory in Fremont, California. The prototype was unveiled at Tesla’s design studios in Hawthorne, California on February 9, 2012. First deliveries of the Model X began in September 2015. After one full year on the market, in 2016, the Model X ranked seventh among the world’s best-selling plug-in cars. A refresh of the Tesla Model X was introduced in 2021, offering a new “Plaid” performance model, along with a revised interior, powertrain, and suspension.

As of September 2023, the Model X is available as a Long-Range version with an estimated EPA range of 348 miles (560 km) and a high performance “Plaid” version with an estimated EPA range of 333 miles (536 km).

Tesla Model X provides an all new interior to customers while maintaining its unique Falcon-Wing doors. The Model X has also adapted a glass panoramic roof from the Model Y, offering ultraviolet and infrared protection for passengers.

The Model X is the only Tesla to come with a tow hitch standard, capable of hauling up to 5,000 lbs. The smaller Model Y is also available with a tow hitch, but it requires an additional fee.

Both the Model X and Model Y are the only current Teslas available with seating for up to seven people.

Furthermore, the Model X now comes with other features that debuted on the Model Y such as Tesla’s heat pump and a chrome delete exterior.

In August of 2021, Tesla subtly updated the Model X on its website with new darker wheels.
