Ever heard of a 287,000 pound Boeing 787-8 being towed for nearly 1000 feet by an SUV? That very SUV was the Tesla Model X – holder of Guinness Book Of World Records for “Heaviest Tow By An Electric Production Passenger Vehicle” as on date May 15th, 2018. This is how legendary Tesla has made it’s Model X SUV. The Model X is built on the contents of the Model S. It was earlier planned to use 60 percent of the contents of the Model S, but after production, it actually used just 30 percent and made the vehicle 10 percent heavier than the Model S.
The sale of the Tesla Model X started selling on September 29th of 2015, and as of December 2017, Tesla has sold about 72,059 units of the Model X. But what makes this Tesla Model X stand out so much? Let’s check it out.
Tesla Model X Engine And Specifications
There are mostly three popular variants of the Model X – the 75D, 100D and the P100D. The 75D derives its name from its 75 kWh battery pack. The 100D as well as the P100D shares the same battery capacity of 100 kWh. The P100D also gets the Performance motor, that makes it one of the quickest and fastest crossovers in the world car market right now. But due to it’s largely bigger body, the performance falls a bit short to the Model S.
The 75D can reach 0 to 100 KM in just 4.9 seconds. It can also do a top speed of 209 KMPH. The driving range is however 417 KMs. Coming to the 100D, it can do 0 to 100 KMPH in just 4.7 seconds. The top speed and the driving distance on a single charge are 250 KMPH and 565 KMs respectively. The P100D though can reach 0 to 100 KMPH in just 2.9 seconds, which is just blazing fast for a car of this size. The top speed is same as 100D at 250 KMPH, and it has a driving distance of 541 KMs.
Tesla Model X Interior, Exterior and Features
When it comes to the exterior of the Model X, it sure does do a pretty unique job. The exterior is not at all a box-shaped, but more like the pumped up version of the Model S. There will be two wheel options – 20 and 22 inches. It comes with those stunning falcon wing rear doors and an overall taller structure. The front doors opening and closing is again old fashioned though.
On the interiors, it comes with a huge 17-inch touchscreen front panel on the centre console. The cabin is very much similar to that of the Model S. The standard Model X comes with a 5 seater, and it can be increased to 6 or 7 seaters for an extra price. The Model X has two dedicated laces for cargo, and thus definitely will carry more luggage than the Model S.
Coming to some more extra features offered by the Model X, they are – engine immobilizer, rear parking camera with sensors, automatic lock doors, airbags, as usual, anti-locking braking system and daytime running lamps as well.
