Elon Musk disappointed Tesla’s fans with its latest tweets. The 2020 Tesla Model X is about to arrive. And while everyone hoped for further upgrades, that will not happen. Elon Musk said on Twitter that the company will introduce a series of minor upgrades for its Model X and Model S vehicles. Knowing that Tesla will deliver only interior upgrades in 2020.
The rest of the vehicle will largely remain. That is another disappointment as everyone expect even better driving range. However, that will not happen in the near future. Despite the disappointments, Model X will remain one of the fastest SUVs on the markets.
Exterior Will Largely Remain
You must credit Tesla for the uniqueness and futuristic design. The 2020 Tesla Model X looks very modern and upscale. It makes a real stand-out in the crowd and it wears an impressive styling. Chrome door handles, perfect roofline and other angular features are making this SUV very attractive. Unlike the Model S, Model X is wider and it comes with a taller stance.
Sadly, the 2020 model will be a carryover in terms of exterior design. That means the all-new model won’t be that much new. LED headlights, 17-inch wheels, and blacked-out grille are still offered as standard. Falcon Wing doors are still a popular topic among the fans.
Once you step inside the all-new 2020 Tesla Model X, you’ll see an almost buttonless design. Huge touchscreen simply dominated the dashboard. Leather upholstery is everywhere from the steering wheel to the seats and door panels. Model X looks very modern from the inside and very unique. For instance, the windshield looks very unique.
On the other hand, the interior is very practical and it offers a generous room. Elon Musk confirmed only minor changes and all of them will happen in the technology department. Yes, it sounds like a disappointment, probably because it is. Tesla will look to update the infotainment system and displays. Besides that, nothing will change from the inside. Once again, there will be room for seven passengers.
Model X is the Safest SUV Ever
One of the things we like the most about this SUV is its safety rating. Whatsoever, Tesla Model X is the first and still the only SUV that achieved an NHTSA five-star safety rating. That includes a five-star rating in every category and subcategory.
On top of that, the 2020 Tesla Model X has the lowest probability of rollover. Next, to that, Tesla also offers plenty of safety systems. Some of them are standard while some systems are still optional. That includes numerous sensors, radars, and the semi-autonomous driving mode.
Performance, Mileage, Acceleration
Despite zero upgrades, the arriving 2020 Tesla Model X will remain powerful and quick like before. Model X is equipped with a large battery that delivers 325 miles of driving range. If you opt for a high-performance variant than the battery provides 290 miles of range.
On top of that, the performance version sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. If that is not enough for you, then buy the optional Ludicrous Mode. This package lowers the acceleration to only 2.8 seconds. For that reason, Tesla Model X is still the quickest SUV on the market and it offers superb handling.
2020 Tesla Model X Price and Release Date
The price of the all-new 2020 Tesla Model X remains unchanged. That means you can buy this SUV for $83,000. Of course, loading more options will cost you significantly more, above $100,000. For instance, Ludicrous Mode is priced at $20,000. New Tesla’s SUV will hit the dealerships later in 2019. Also, a couple of models such as Jaguar I-Pace will try to compete with Tesla’s new SUV.
