Introduction

What Car? says...

It would seem that 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 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.
