Introduction

What Car? says...

It would seem Elon Musk is a very busy man. In between firing rockets into space and digging big holes in the ground, he’s also trying to revolutionise the luxury car market. The Tesla Model X SUV is the largest of the American brand's high-tech electric cars to arrive on British shores thus far.

Although Tesla is hardly a pioneer of the sporty and luxurious SUV, the Model X does have a very distinctive look and there’s plenty of innovation underneath, too. This includes an Autopilot self-driving function, electrically operated ‘falcon wing’ rear doors and a claimed range between charges of more than 300 miles.

If you really want to put the ‘sport’ into your SUV there's the Performance version, complete with a Ludicrous mode. This can also go from 0-60mph in a gobsmacking 2.6sec. However, as the name suggests, the Long Range version is the one to go for if you want to get as far as possible between charges, plus it's also much cheaper than the Performance to buy.

So, it's quick and has lengthy range between charges, but is the Tesla Model X as good as other electric SUVs, such as the Audi E-tron, Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes EQC? Click through to the next page and we'll begin tell you all you need to know.
