Tesla Model X

In a word? ‘unconventional’


Unconventional capability

Tesla has unveiled its newly refreshed Model X electric SUV. A unique car in today’s market, the Tesla Model X is distinctive on the outside, minimalist on the inside, and innovative underneath. With ‘falcon wing’ rear doors, space for seven, and incredible acceleration, this all-electric three-row crossover earns high marks for space, efficiency, and performance overall. The Model X also scores bonus points for its Autopilot self-driving function and claimed 580 km range. With the most storage space and towing capacity of any electric SUV, the Model X also delivers maximum utility. Paired with updated battery architecture, both Long Range and Plaid powertrains deliver instant torque at any speed.


Unconventional luxury

Unusually-styled and digitally outfitted, the Tesla Model X 2021 electric crossover makes conventional SUVs feel fairly analogue by comparison. Inside, the refreshed Tesla Model X sports a radical new-looking interior. Gone is the old school steering wheel, and the out-dated, vertically-oriented touchscreen has been replaced, too. Instead, you’ll feel more like you’re flying an aircraft with the newly designed "stalkless steering yoke" and tiltable 17-inch cinematic display that ‘houses’ the driving controls. There's also a new, separate 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen for passengers in the backseat. The X can also “guess” drive direction based on context, nav map, and obstacles.


Unconventional performance

Tesla’s long-awaited Plaid powertrain is "beyond ludicrous" and gives the refreshed Model X the capacity to sprint from 0-100 km in 2.5 sec in Ludicrous Mode—the quickest acceleration of any SUV. Both platforms unite innovative powertrain and battery technologies, so, whether you choose Long Range or Plaid, you’ll get unrivalled performance, range and efficiency. In the Model X, you can travel farther on a single charge than any other electric SUV. And, with access to Tesla’s 20,000+ Superchargers globally, who knows how far you will go. Plus, every Model X comes with Tesla’s latest active safety features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, standard.

Top FAQs electric driving

What is a full electrical vehicle? An electric vehicle, also called an EV, uses one or more electric motors or traction motors for propulsion. The energy used for driving an EV is stored in the battery and the battery is charged at a charge station (at home, at the office or in public).What do I need to charge my electric vehicle? To charge your electric vehicle, you will require a recharging station, a charging cable, and a charging card.How many kilometres can I drive on a fully charged battery? A fully charged battery with a capacity of 40 kW will enable you to drive 200 to 250 kilometers. If you drive sensibly, you will achieve even more. Speed has the most effect on the amount of power drawn down from your battery, so you are advised to keep to the permitted speed limits. There are also other factors that may have an effect on your driving range: - High or low temperatures (resulting in continuous operation of the air conditioning/heating) - A (too) sporty driving style - Driving with a strong headwind - A fully loaded car - Driving uphill for a long period of time Does an electric vehicle require different maintenance than a vehicle with petrol or diesel? An electric vehicle requires less maintenance. This is due to the engine's reduced number of moving parts compared to a conventional combustion motor, which therefore leads to reduced wear. Moreover, oil changes are a thing of the past and the vehicle does not have an exhaust or gears. In addition, the brakes are less susceptible to wear thanks to the regenerative braking capacity.How safe are electric vehicles? Electric vehicles are approved for all safety factors, just like conventional vehicles. In the event of a collision, there is a possibility that some parts may receive an active charge or that short-circuiting causes an electrical fire, though the safety precautions and construction have limited this risk to an absolute minimum.How long will it take to charge my vehicle? That depends on a number of factors: the type of vehicle, the power left in the battery, how fast your vehicle charges, and which type of recharging station you will be using. When charging your vehicle with a standard power socket, approximately 10 hours is required. This is approximately 2 to 4 hours when using a public recharging terminal. When using a fast-charger (primarily located along highways), your battery will reach 80% charge in 30 minutes. Do keep in mind that using fast-chargers is more expensive than standard recharging stations.What does it cost to charge an electric vehicle? This depends on where you will be charging your vehicle. Home recharging stations are the most economical in most situations. The average electric vehicle uses 15 to 20 kWh per 100 km. If your home electricity rate is €0.25 and you drive an average of 15,000 km per year, your charging costs will range between €563 and €750 per year. When charging away from home, your rate is determined by the recharging terminal provider. A starting fee and incentive rate are often charged in addition to the kWh charge. Via www.plugsurfing.com, you'll find an overview of available recharging terminals in Belgium and Europe including the price per kWh.
