Mat's flown over to the American West Coast, and he's spending the day in a Tesla Model X Plaid! He's already attempted one out over the 1/4-mile in a drag race, however let's see what he makes of it for daily living.
Beginning with the design, it's pretty much similar to the original Model X. The outside is extremely simple, with a minimalist take a look around the front, back and sides. As Tesla has just ever produced electrical automobiles, there's (the good news is!) no fake grille at the front. However, one style feature we're not a fan of are the body panels, which sometimes don't match up and are noticeable throughout the vehicle.
Step within, and the minimalist style continues! Apart from a few buttons steering wheel, seats, and on the doors, whatever in this vehicle is managed through the big infotainment screen on the dash. The good news is the screen is extremely easy to utilize and really quick, however we would choose a few more physical buttons to make things simpler to manage when driving. As for the construct quality, it's ok in the majority of locations, however some areas leave a little to be desired.
As Mat remains in the Plaid, it features 6 seats – the only alternative available for this version of the Model X. If you select a dual-motor, regular Model X, there's the option to have it with 5, 6 or 7 seats.
When it comes to efficiency, the regular dual-motor Model X can produce 676hp, while this Plaid comes with 3 motors and can produce an amazing 1,020 hp! Both cars come with the very same 95kWh battery pack, and while the double motor benefits approximately 348 miles of variety, the Plaid's range drops somewhat, to 337 miles.
The regular Design X expenses from around ₤ 102,000, while the Plaid comes in at around ₤ 127,000. The question is – is it worth it ?! Or should you choose one of the other expensive, high-performance electric SUVs out there? You'll require to stick to Mat and see for yourself!
