Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Tesla Model X comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 1-speed direct drive.No major additions announced yet, but Tesla typically updates its vehicles throughout the calendar year.

Pros
Instant and powerful acceleration
Electric range is impressive
Three-row seating is available
Access to Tesla's extensive Supercharger network

Cons
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality
Rough, choppy ride with larger wheels
Vast windshield lets too much sun and heat into the cabin
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren't offered

Ignore the silly falcon doors and the 2020 Tesla Model X is a compelling family electric crossover.

Pros
Stupefying performance
Rides well
Quick, clear 17-inch touchscreen
All-electric powertrain

Cons
Awkward style
Falcon doors are a gimmick
Disappointing interior space
Expensive

It's hard to know exactly what's new on 2020 Model Xs because Tesla, unlike almost every other automaker, makes constant running changes to its products throughout each calendar year. According to a blog post on its consumer site, Tesla touts more efficient electric motors, faster charging via more robust onboard chargers, and a fully adaptive air suspension system. Tesla is also testing a new variant of the Model S—the Model X's sedan cousin—at Germany's famed Nürburgring race course.

Pros
Long driving range,
quick-charging battery,
impressive acceleration.

Cons
Cabin doesn't live up to the price,
gimmicky Falcon Wing doors,
build quality could be better.

Both the R1S and the Rivian brand itself are new entrants in the SUV marketplace. The R1S will be sold directly to consumers, although Rivian says that it also will set up a network of service centers and Tesla-like stores. The R1S will go on sale in early 2021.To take advantage of the R1S's longest available driving range, buyers will need to spring for the largest 180.0-kWh model. We think it's worth it given that the average driver will need to recharge the battery less frequently and the extended range will come in handy for road trips.
