Quality and performance have remained the better part of Tesla over the years. The latest edition is the ‘Model X’ that is considered to be the most capable, fastest and the safest sports utility vehicle. Being an uncompromised vehicle, it has many interesting and quite a few smart features. The expected price is set at 75,000 dollars respectively.
1. Design and Safety:
The Model X is designed in such a manner that safety was kept as the main priority. The presence of floor-mounted battery keeps the gravitational force to the minimum that reduces the likelihood of a rollover. The battery structure is such that it strengthens the vehicle against any side impact intrusions. Since there is no gasoline engine, the big front trunk functions as a huge impact-absorbing feature.
The Model X is a smart car in the sense that it continuously scans the nearby roadway through radar, sonar systems, and the camera. This enables the driver to get real-time feedback to avoid collisions. If the speed is quite high, the vehicle is capable enough to apply brakes automatically at the time of an emergency.
The outside pollution, bacteria, and pollen are constantly filtered through a medical grade HEPA filter prior to the air circulating inside the cabin. There are three modes for adjusting the filter level that include a ‘bio-weapon defense’, ‘re-circulate inside air’ and ‘circulate the outside air’ respectively. Thus, a positive and clean pressure is created that protects the occupants inside.
2. Falcon Wings:
The Falcon Wing doors are special and unheard of before. They provide easy access to the second and third-row seats even if the car is parked in a tight space. Having only a foot of clearance on each side, the Falcon Wing doors articulate up smoothly. This enables the passengers to enter the cabin from the front and the rear side. Interestingly, the overhead and side opening is so big that even the parents can buckle the children inside without having to strain or duck or even bumping the kid’s head on the roof.
3. Seating Capacity:
The Model X has a seating capacity of seven people in the three rows. Each seat is equally good, but those present in the second row are remarkable. Each seat in the second row is mounted on the single post and reclines independently that helps to maximize the legroom, comfort, and the under seat storage. Moreover, the third row can be easily accessed as well.
When not in usage the third-row seats can be folded flat. While the second-row seats can be made to lean forward that allows for more cargo area.
Two versions of Model X will be available for the consumers. One is the P90D Signature, and the other is sportier P90D Founder. The engine specifications include a 259-hp electric motor that energizes the front wheels and the 503-hp rear-mounted motor that stimulates the rear wheels to account for the all-wheel drive transmission.
The P90D Signature version has a top speed of 155 miles per hour and a 250-mile range. In just 3.2 seconds, it can accelerate to 60 miles per hour respectively.
5. Fuel Economy:
The Tesla Model X will prove to be fuel-efficient as it is expected to perform well within the city and on the highway. The fuel consumption in the city is 88 miles per gallon while on the highway it is at 90 miles per gallon.
Thus, anyone who owns a Tesla will find this version to be remarkable indeed.
