Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

If you want a family-friendly electric SUV, the 2016 Tesla Model X is in a class of one. You'll love the large door openings and silent speed of this midsize electric crossover that utilizes many of the same components as Tesla's successful Model S sedan.

The 2016 Tesla Model X is an all-new model.
Lost among the sometimes hype-driven commentary regarding the Tesla Model S sedan is that it's simply a very nice, very fast car. It's sleek and seductive, with luxury, performance and price beyond any electric vehicle on sale today. Tesla hopes to extend its win streak with the all-new 2016 Model X, a crossover-style version of the popular sedan.

Buyers who like the Model S but want something bigger should be pleased with the Model X. Its standard third row of forward-facing seats offers a choice of true six- or seven-passenger seating, compared to the optional rear-facing jump seats in the Model S. The Model X is also available with two rows of seating for five passengers.

Pros
Enough range for daily use
Tremendously quick acceleration
Five-, six- and seven-passenger configurations
Unique rear doors open wide.

Cons
Non-folding second row of seats and vertical-opening rear doors compromise utility
Out of the price range of most crossover buyers
Towing is largely incompatible with Supercharger network
Unknown reliability.

The 2016 Tesla Model X is unique, the sole all-electric SUV, even if its interior flexibility isn't what some buyers may expect from a utility vehicle.

The 2016 Tesla Model X isn't nearly as graceful as the lower, sleeker Model X sedan, but the interior is elegant.

The 2016 Tesla Model X offers startlingly good handling, roadholding, and acceleration—more like a car than a tall SUV.

The 2016 Tesla Model X is comfortable inside, but the vaunted falcon doors offset excellent access with some drawbacks.

The 2016 Tesla Model X should do well in real-world safety, although it hasn't been rated by the IIHS or NHTSA

The 2016 Tesla Model X offers a competitive set of features, including active-safety systems, plus Autopilot self-driving software

The 2016 Tesla Model X runs solely on battery power recharged by grid electricity; it has no direct emissions.

Pros
Astonishing performance and economy
Striking falcon-wing doors
Forward-facing seating for six or seven

Cons
Price can soar above six figures
No flat load-floor over second row
Utility not its strongest point
Clunky styling resembles inflated Model S

The Tesla Model X isn't quite the revelation that the Model S was, but those who have the right lifestyle - and who can afford the high price tag - will find that this car is a perfect match. We prefer the Model S, with its more composed drive, more practical rear doors and more handsome looks, but for those who really want an electric SUV, then there’s little else like it.

Following our first test of the new Telsa Model X in Germany, we've now been given the chance to try the car on British roads for the first time. With the new P100D just around the corner, it’s the more modest 90D we look at here.

The extra practicality of an SUV, plus the premium aspirations of many buyers, means the Tesla Model X is entering into a lucrative market sector. These cars are undeniably on-trend at the moment, and the Model X is positioned to offer a compelling argument for all-electric travel.

There aren't many SUVs that offer the same performance as this one, either. It takes just 4.8 seconds to go from 0-60mph, which is astonishing for an SUV this big and heavy. At higher speed it's not quite as gut-wrenching, but from 40-70mph, where you'll often use the power on faster roads, there's little else like it.

The interior itself is smart-looking and the materials used are suitably plush. The build quality of this early left-hand drive model wasn't particularly impressive, but Tesla promises right-hand drive customer cars will be better. While reports of quality issues from owners in the US are stacking up, we'll have to wait for the results of our Driver Power survey next year to find out what British buyers think. If this year's Model S whitewash is anything to go by, there should be few major problems.
