Tesla Model X: The Future of SUV’s is Here
Tesla Motor Company announced the new SUV named the Tesla X. This is a game changer of an automobile. Boasting impressive styling with the largest panoramic front windshield on a production car, “falcon wing” rear doors, and room for 7, this is the SUV people have been waiting for.
The Tesla Model X Boasts Impressive Performance
The Tesla X performance all wheel drive model has a 250 mile range on a charge, and boasts an impressive 0-60 in 3.8 seconds (with a 3.2 second 0-60 on the claimed “ludicrous Speed Upgrade”) and a top speed of 155 mph. This is no slouch for an SUV. Safety features abound in the Tesla X with Parking sensors, blind spot and side collision warnings, and automatic emergency braking.
Tesla claims that the Model X is the most aerodynamic SUV in production. At 0.24, Model X’s drag coefficient is 20% lower than the next best SUV. In addition, an active spoiler deploys from the rear lift gate to optimize highway efficiency and stability.
The Tesla Model X is also said to come with a medical grade HEPA filter that strips outside air of pollen, bacteria, viruses and pollution before circulating it into the cabin. There are three modes: circulate with outside air, re-circulate inside air and a bioweapon defense mode that creates positive pressure inside the cabin to protect occupants. Is this the ultimate Zombie apocalypse vehicle?
Tesla automobiles have been at the forefront of innovation since their inception, and the Tesla Model X is no exception. While the major automobile manufacturers have yet to catch up with the advances that Tesla has made, they soon will. The Tesla X is an automobile of the future, and the future is now.
