The brand new Model X from Tesla Motors is designed from the ground up to blend the best of an SUV with the benefits of a minivan, as only an electric car can. With a center of gravity lower than any other SUV, you’ll notice nimble reflexes at every turn. The electric powertrain delivers instant torque for confident lane changes, even when loaded with seven adults and all their gear.
Model X is offered with optional Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive. The second motor enables more than all-weather, all-road capabilities: it increases torque by 50%. When outfitted with AWD, Model X Performance accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, outperforming the fastest SUVs and many sports cars.
The Model X also features what are being dubbed “Falcon Wings.” Calling them doors would be an understatement. While earning serious style points, they’re functional first. Falcon Wings open up and out of the way, in even the narrowest of parking spots. You easily step, not climb, into Model X.
