Tesla Model X revealed, becomes world’s fastest SUV
When it comes to producing electric vehicles, there is no brand better than Tesla. The Model S has been a very good product in the USA, finding good amount of buyers in the country. Playing the role of a successor to the Model S, Tesla has just unveiled its next vehicle, Model X. Featuring a unique and futuristic design, the company claims that it is the world’s fastest SUV till date.
The front end has a very sleek and narrow front grille with a neatly designed front bumper. The side is fairly smooth flowing as well. The roofline slopes towards the rear with a coupe like look and the rear features butterfly doors, which by far is a very unique feature. The rear end of the electric SUV on the other hand is reminiscent of the Model S and the overall styling does not look like it has been overdone.
The seven-seater electric SUV comes in two different variants, namely, 90D and P90D. The less powerful 90D trim has two motors powering the front and rear axle respectively. Having 259 horsepower of power each, the vehicle can hit the ton mark from standstill in 4.8 seconds and go all the way up to a top speed of 250 km/hr. it has a range of 411 km. The more powerful P90D on the other hand has a 259 HP motor for the front and 503 HP motor for the rear tyres respectively. Capable of reaching 100 km/hr from standstill in 3.8 seconds in the normal mode and 3.2 seconds with the Ludicrous Speed Upgrade pack, it has an overall range of 400 km.
The interior has been tastefully designed with good looking solo seats and a huge screen bang in the middle of the centre console. Being a Tesla, its interiors come loaded with a ton of features. These include an Active Safety that detects when the car might get into an accident thanks to cameras and then applies the brakes on its own, parking sensors, navigation system, blind-spot warning, HEPA filter that keep harmful micro-organisms away, largest production windshield ever, 8-year unlimited kilometre warranty on the drive unit and battery, power folding and heated ORVMs, keyless entry, four latch child seat attachments and a six or seven seating configuration.
