The forthcoming 2021 Tesla Model X is a three-row all-electric SUV that looks compact and modern. Like before, Tesla X will be offered in two variants. There will be a Long-Range and Performance models. Each of these variants comes with own uniqueness. Besides, the cabin of Model X is luxurious and comfort is one of the best in the segment.
Engine-wise, Model X uses two AC electric motors and a 100-kWh lithium-ion battery. Thanks to that, it provides a vast driving range and plenty of power. According to news, the sales of the refreshed version will start later in 2020.
Will Tesla Model X Be Updated?
The upcoming 2021 Tesla Model X, compared to sedan S, provides almost identical styling. However, because X is a crossover, it has a different shape and proportion.
Design is futuristic, unique and is very recognized on the road because of that. In fact, it’s the best-looking car around. Unique Falcon Wing doors and sloping roofline provides a modern look. Besides, Tesla Model X features unique blacked-out grille and LED headlights. The standard package includes 17-inch wheels, while black 22-inch wheels might be bought optionally.
Interior Is Modern and Durable
The cabin of 2021 Tesla Model X looks clean, modern and simple. Tesla is a company that produces very durable and quality cabins. Of course, the main highlight is still never seen before a massive touchscreen that dominates in the cabin. Moreover, we must credit Tesla for placing three rows in such a small crossover. Model X has a room for seven passengers. Also, it’s available in five-seat and six-seat configurations.
The seats are incredibly comfortable and Tesla provides plenty of hidden storage areas. Inside, one can found heated steering wheel, heated and power-folding side mirrors, 12-way-power adjustment for the front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-speaker premium sound system, navigation, and more. Autopilot ADAS (advanced driving-assistance system) is excellent and it includes adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring.
