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 that can take you from 0-60mph in a gobsmacking 2.6sec. However, as the name suggests, the Long Range Plus version is the one to go for if you want to travel a really long way between charges, plus it's also much cheaper than the Performance to buy.

So is the Tesla Model X as good as other electric SUVs, such as the Audi E-tron, Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes EQC? And can it really rival the seven-seat Vauxhall Vivaro-e Life for outright practicality? Click through to the next page and we'll begin tell you all you need to know. We have separate reviews of the Tesla Model S and Tesla Model 3 too.
