What alternatives should I consider to a used Tesla Model X hatchback?
Among conventionally powered rivals, the Audi Q7 runs the Model X close. It’s a seven-seat SUV that's full of luxury, although if you opt for the e-tron version you’ll only fit five people. The e-tron is a plug-in hybrid, not a fully electric car, but it’s remarkably refined and has lively performance and a comfortable ride. The regular diesel Q7 is capacious and practical, too, and likewise remarkably refined, while the high-performance SQ7 is thrillingly quick. Later versions feature mild-hybrid technology.
The Range Rover PHEV is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that combines all the traditional virtues of the Range Rover – the presence, the luxury, the off-road ability – with a little environmental awareness. Performance is storming and on-paper fuel economy is impressive. It’s rather expensive, though.
The Jaguar I-Pace is a great-looking fully electric SUV with an official WLTP range of 292 miles and a real range figure of 253 miles. It comes with an incredibly plush interior and a fantastic driving position. The ride is really comfy, too. Not a seven-seater, though, like the Model X.
The Audi E-tron is another large SUV that is fully electric and five seats only, with an official WLTP range of 237 miles and a real range of 196 miles, in our hands. It's incredibly refined at all speeds, beautifully built and very well equipped. still expensive used, but there are savings to be had.
