The 2019 Tesla Model X is no longer the only all-electric SUV you can buy this year. It’s swift, pleasant to travel in, and relatively practical, save for its somewhat silly doors.

Pros
Doors with more flair than some supercars
Performance and handling
Smooth, quiet ride
Quick, clear 17-inch touchscreen

Cons
Looks like a bulbous Model S
Rear doors are a gimmick
Disappointing interior space
Prices go well past $140,000

The 2019 Tesla Model X SUV comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 1-speed direct drive.Revised trim-level lineup with greater range capability
New Full Self-Driving Capability feature adds extra skills to Autopilot

PROS
Instant and powerful acceleration
Electric range is impressive
Three-row seating is available
No engine noise makes for a quiet cabin

CONS
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality
More squeaks and rattles than other high-end luxury SUVs
Rough, choppy ride with larger wheels
Vast windshield lets far too much sun and heat into the cabin

The 2019 Tesla Model X might be the greenest—and one of the fastest—way to tote up to seven people over hill and dale. As the crossover cousin to the brand's iconic Model S sedan, the X is actually practical, with all-wheel drive, a high-tech cabin with room for up to seven, and striking but fussy Falcon Wing doors.
