Alongside the Model Y which is set to hit the market in early 2020, the carmaker should also reveal the newest version of its popular SUV, the 2019 Tesla Model X. According to the manufacturer, the Model X is one of the safest SUVs ever made which provides excellent acceleration. It is very comfortable and depending on a seating configuration, it is able to carry up to five, six, or seven passengers. The Tesla Model isn’t available in classic trim levels but instead, it comes in three different sizes of the battery pack. Therefore, it provides three different ranges. The current version is now in its fourth model year and has entered the market with a lower price than its predecessor. However, the 2019 model year shouldn’t differ much from the current but it is expected to get some improvements inside the cabin.
On the other hand, the new Tesla should keep the same powertrain as before and it will be available in three versions depending on a battery pack. Its styling should remain the same also with unique “falcon wing” styled doors. For those who love luxury cars, the Tesla could be the right choice since it is equipped with many modern features.
2019 Tesla Model X powertrain and range
The 2019 Tesla Model X is powered by two electric motors each per one axle and a lithium-ion battery pack which is placed under the floor. It comes in three variants.
The base version 75D features a battery pack of 75 kWh which can provide the range of 238 miles. It is able to produce 328 horsepower. The 100D variant is equipped with a battery pack of 100 kWh which has the range of 295 miles.
The most powerful model has a battery of 100 kWh but it has the output of 680 hp and 791 pound-feet of torque because of the stronger motors. This version offers the range of 289 miles and it is able to hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. The all-wheel drive is standard and all models work with a one-speed transmission.
Design of exterior and interior
The 2019 Tesla Model X will feature the same rounded shape unlike most of the SUVs with a boxy and square shape. Its design is clean, sleek, and simple and the front end doesn’t feature a classic grille. It rides on the large 20-inch alloy wheels and it is recognizable for its unique Falcon Wing doors.
Inside the cabin, the 2019 Tesla Model X will be available with a five, six-, and seven-seating configuration. It is comfortable, and the second and the third row can now fold flat if needed for more cargo room.
The Model X offers a range of modern standard equipment which includes a 17-inch touchscreen, 14-way power adjustable and heated front seats, synthetic leather, LED lights, power liftgate, and so on. The Premium Upgrades package adds a custom audio system, heated seats for all occupants, a heated steering wheel, satellite radio etc. Furthermore, the semi-autonomous system is available too. As well, the Model X is one of the safest SUVs and comes standard with latest safety features.
Release date and price
We still cannot say for sure when the 2019 Tesla Model X should hit the market. However, it might be sometime by the year of 2020. The price should stay similar to the current and it is around $80,000 for the base model.
