The anticipated Tesla X SUV is making its first appearance at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed. Standing alongside Model X will be three of Tesla’s exhilarating Model S cars and an AWD chassis.
Model X is the uncompromising SUV that combines safety, size and speed. With enough room to fit seven adults and accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in a little over 3.2 seconds. With all-wheel drive and a 90 kWh battery providing 411 kilometers (257 miles) of rang, Model X is the fastest and most capable sport utility vehicle in history, thanks to power outputs between 328 – 532 hp and top speed in the range of 209 – 250 km/h (130- 155 mph); depending on specifications.
Model X is designed with safety as the first priority. The floor-mounted battery lowers the center of gravity so that the risk of rollover is about half that of any vehicle in its class. The battery structure strengthens Model X against side impact intrusions. And without a gasoline engine, the large front trunk acts as a giant impact-absorbing crumple zone.
In looks, the Tesla Model X features the unmistakable Falcon Wing doors which allow easy access to second and third row seats from even a tight parking space. With only a foot of clearance on either side, Falcon Wing doors articulate smoothly up and out of the way, allowing passengers to enter from both front and rear directions. The side and overhead opening is so large that parents can buckle children in without ducking or straining and without bumping their child’s head on the roof.
And that’s not all, Model X has the largest all glass panoramic windshield in production, best seats in the house, hitch mounted accessory carriers and a towing capacity of 2,267 kg (5,000 lbs) Every seat is the best seat in the house, but the second row seats are a work of art. Mounted on a single post and independently reclining, each second row seat is designed to maximize passenger comfort, legroom, under seat storage and access to the third row. The third row seats fold flat when not in use and the second row seats lean forward and out of the way for even more cargo area.
