Tesla is a company that does not stop being in the limelight and not only for its incredible Model X, an electric car able to remove the hiccups. The Tesla Model X is the world’s first electric SUV. Unlike the Model 3 that wants to be “the electric car of the people“, with the Model X, Tesla has entered fully in the segment of the models of great luxury.
Meet Model X: The Safest SUV Ever made by Tesla motors
Tesla X model is the safest, fastest and most powerful sport utility vehicle in history. Designed as an uncompromising family car, the Model X comes standard with 4 x 4 drive, seating for up to 7 adults, standard active safety features, and drives a range of 475 km on a single load. And it’s the fastest SUV in production, capable of accelerating from 0-60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds.
DragTimes recently released a video on YouTube that sees a Tesla Model X P100D win the game by 0.05 seconds in an acceleration race to a Lamborghini Aventador.
Although the Italian missile weighs 545 kg less than the creation of Elon Musk, the Tesla Model X not only wins in this confrontation (by a minimum margin, everything is said) but also this car achieved the world record by becoming in the fastest SUV, capable of covering the quarter mile in 11.418 seconds and reaching a speed of 189 km / h in the process.
We have had the opportunity to test the Tesla Model X. A vehicle that is surprising to have gull wing doors, double trunk and have a performance … of Lamborghini.
Tesla Model X: First Impressions
At the Geneva Motor Show the Tesla stand was not the greatest nor much less but it was one of the most visited. An expectation that was due mainly to the Model X. At first glance the car also does not draw much attention. It is larger than the Model S but a Land Rover or a Volvo XC90 impress more by taking a look.
Tesla Model X: Interior
Once again we can rely on the helped cliche that reminds us that appearances deceive. Thanks to its electric motor, Tesla engineers have found spaces that are unthinkable in a conventional car. As in the other models of the company, the batteries are located far down in the chassis. Which means that the front and rear of the Model X can be used as a boot. The front carrier is gigantic, even with the SUV in seven-seater configuration. At the back there is also a decent space to transport the purchase.
The interior looks like its brothers. In it is a gigantic 17-inch screen that we had already seen in the Tesla S. The company says that this is the largest curved screen used so far in a car so it does not bother anything at all in driving. On the other hand, the gull wing doors make it even interesting to get in and out of this curious electric car.
Tesla Model X: Seagull falcon wing doors
The gull wings look like a concession to the gallery. Tesla says they’re designed to handle Model X better in confined spaces and I think the company is right. It is designed large from inside, even a person with 180 cm of height can sit easily into the car, as the doors are clearly above the head. Oh, and of course there are sensors that stop the door before it hits a low ceiling.
Falcon Wing doors improve accessibility in the second and third rows, and are able to open even in the tightest parking spaces. Each door is equipped with sensors that monitor the proximity of the surroundings and open smoothly, allowing parents to easily fasten the child without forcing or banging their child’s head on the roof.
Also under the skin the Tesla Model X is spectacular. Like other conventional saloon, the air that reaches the interior is cleaned through a Hepa filter. But it also has another function called “bioweapon defense mode” that it does is pressurize the interior cabin. The result? The particles of dust and pollution are left out.
So, what is our verdict? Although we did not have the opportunity to try everything we would have liked, we understand perfectly why Tesla is so proud of the Model X. It is an SUV that combines practicality from day to day with benefits that will convince even the most daring.
The Tesla Model X is capable of accelerating from 0 to 96 km / h (60 miles per hour) in 3.2 seconds.
In addition it has the power enough to drag a caravan of 2,270 kg. All this in a comfortable way thanks to the pneumatic suspensions.
