This is the car for you if… want to drive an electric car that makes you feel like Marty McFly.
Dive into the future with the Tesla Model X. This electric car is like nothing else on the market. And makes a real statement on the road.
Designed as an electric car from the bottom up, Tesla hasn’t compromised on any of its features. With no engine or mechanical parts to worry about, the Model X boasts the most storage of any SUV in its class. There’s a boot at the back and front of the car. Plus roomy seating for seven adults. With the option to switch this around in configurations of 5,6 and 7 to maximise the space available.
It’s a completely practical car that works for you, whatever the reason for your journey… Whether you’re a family of five travelling to the airport. On your own ferrying six children to and from football training. Or touring Europe with a car packed full of ski gear. And with the capability to tow up to 2,250 kg, you could even add a caravan into the mix too.
But let’s jump straight to the space age features that make the Tesla Model X so distinctive. For a start, there are the unmissable falcon wing back doors. Which make you feel like a VIP every time you get in and out of the car. They’re also tremendously practical if you’re transporting small children or elderly parents in the back.
They don’t just look good though – they’re smart too, with sensors to monitor the proximity of their surroundings. So they can magically open in even the tightest parking spaces.
Then there are the slick features that make the Tesla Model X so iconic – like front doors that open automatically as you approach the car. And the car key – if calling it that doesn’t make it sound too retro – in the shape of a Tesla with each vehicle part corresponding to the real car’s body parts.
Inside, there are familiar Tesla touches – like the 17-inch touchscreen in the central console for managing all the car’s controls. And the glass roof that doesn’t just extend from front to back. But in the Model X spreads across the entire front of the car – and which Tesla claims is the largest panoramic windshield in production.
The luxury experience continues on the road. The Model X glides round corners and tightly grips the surface – whether it’s sun, rain or snow – thanks to Tesla’s dual motor all-wheel drive system.
The Model X’s size and strength doesn’t come at the expense of speed either. It can do 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds. But anyone thinking that it’s a battery guzzler needn’t worry. The Model X has a WLTP range of 314 miles. So you could travel from London to Brighton and back THREE times without needing to re-fuel.
Our three favourite features:
- Try out the Model X’s autopilot function to get a taste of the future. Although Tesla’s very clear that autopilot requires a fully attentive driver at the wheel, it’s hard not to imagine a driverless future, as the car’s sensors and cameras take over the Model X’s steering and speed.
- It’s not one of the flashiest features on the Model X, but the movable seat combinations are certainly one of its neatest innovations. And it’s this kind of detail that makes it really appealing for families.
- And did you know, the Model X is the world’s cleanest SUV on the inside? It’s fitted with a HEPA filter system, so the car’s interior contains medical-grade air – no matter what’s going on outside.
You’ll like the Tesla Model X if you… want to experience what it’s like to drive the ultimate SUV.
