Tesla’s Autopilot semi-autonomous driving is optional. Tesla’s largest model has made its way to Europe now. The Model X is an attempt by Tesla to step in the popular SUV segment. The practicality of the larger body is a big draw for customers around the world. There are two versions available, with the least powerful Model X 90D and the faster P90D.
All models manage 155mph flat-out, too. The car is loved due to its astonishing performance and economy, striking falcon-wing doors and forward-facing seating for six or seven. The most noteworthy feature of the Model X is its roof-hinged falcon wing doors, which not only pivot upwards from the spine of the roof but also are hinged in the middle.
TESLA MODEL X-2017-EXTERIOR
From outside, with four doors and a tailgate, it resembles the taller Model S from many angles. The higher profile eliminates the grace of the lower Model S. At the nose, the Model X features the latest Tesla frontal design, a flat, narrow and horizontal strip that bends into a slight V to carry the Tesla badge and takes the place of a large grille-like insert.
The distinctive wing-like rear falcon doors made it into production, using dual hinges and a sonar system that adjusts arcs during opening and closing to avoid collisions with low garage ceilings and nearby cars, and require several more seconds of waiting for them to open or close than the usually hinged doors may take.
TESLA MODEL X-2017-INTERIOR
Inside, the car has more conventional luxury trim materials and a bit more storage space than the Model S. Leather seats come in white, tan, or black, and trim is a mix of microfiber surfaces, soft-touch plastic, and wood inserts with matte silver accents. Interior design is stylish, with high-grade materials and a center console featuring by a massive touchscreen. Premium quality material is used in the manufacture of a cabin. A vast and large windshield extend above the front seats to provide a panoramic view for everyone in the car.
The Model X is SUV-like in its ability to seat six or seven in three rows of forward-facing seats. There are three individual bucket seats in the second row, or it can be ordered without the center seat for a six-passenger configuration, though that impedes rear vision. The falcon doors ease entry and exit from the second- and third-row seats; Parents will definitely appreciate the ability to get kids in and out of car seats without having to reach sideways. The car uses many driver assistance safety features. These include automatic emergency braking, along with lane departure and blind-spot warning systems. A standard backup camera and parking sensors help when using this large vehicle in tight spaces.

On the road, the Model X is smooth, quiet, and handles well, with flat cornering, responsive electric power steering, and well-controlled body motions.
