Tesla Model X REVIEW IN CANADA
Electric SUVs are still very new to the market, but there’s already one model that stands out from the crowd. The Tesla Model X has been on the market since 2015, and it has quickly become one of the best-selling electric vehicles on the market. With its all-wheel drive, spacious interior, incredible performance, and cargo capabilities, this SUV has everything you could ever want in an electric vehicle!
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
The Tesla Model X range is made up of two versions , which differ from each other by power and autonomy. These are called “Dual-Motor AWD” and “Plaid”. The Tesla Model X has mechanics similar to that of the Tesla Model S, including a four-wheel drive system based on two electric motors for the base model and three electric motors for the “Plaid” version.
Model X has a range of 565km and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h. The more powerful Model X Plaid can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds, has a top speed of 262 km/h and a slightly less range with 539 km with a full charge.
The hallmark of the exterior design of the Tesla Model X is in its “falcon wings” style doors. With them, it attracts more attention than many sports cars, since they are vertically opening doors, similar to the famous “gull wings” popularized by Mercedes-Benz.
The “falcon wing” doors only need 31 cm to unfold. They hinge slowly upwards and facilitate access to the passengers in the rear seats, to their second and third row seats, which is the real excuse that has led to Tesla to design an atypical door system. The doors have six sensors that detect if there are obstacles and open the doors in one way or another, ensuring that they do not collide with anything.
The interior of the Tesla Model X is available in three custom passenger configurations, with a choice of 5, 6 or 7 seats. The dashboard is dominated by a huge 17-inch horizontal screen, from where you can manage apps like Spotify or locate the nearest supercharger. In addition, it has a large panoramic glass windshield that offers spectacular visibility for the driver and front passenger. As it does without a sun visor, a special solar tint has been used on the upper part of the front window.
The Tesla Model X has achieved five stars in all safety categories and subcategories by the NHTSA in USA making it an extremely safe SUV to drive.
