Delayed more than once, the Model X is the third electric vehicle to finally debut from the futuristic labs of Tesla Motors. In doing so, Tesla has somehow made it possible to be genuinely excited about the release of a new kind of SUV.
Billed as an electric crossover, the Model X is truly special, especially its P90D variant: a function called “Ludicrous mode” that lets you go from 0-60 in just 3.2 seconds, with 250 miles of range on a charge. Seating for up to seven adults, sensor-rich Falcon Wing doors, the autonomous capabilities seen in the Model S, a 17-speaker sound system designed to quietly sip on power, glass panoramic windshield (which extends over the front seat) and finally, the famous 17-inch touchscreen used to control the vehicle.
The starting price? $132,000. Yes, it is incredibly expensive, but it is the last of the high-priced Teslas — the next planned model is an entry-level luxury sedan.
