Tesla, Inc. do things in a large and flamboyant manner. Just look at their prolific CEO Elon Musk and his larger-than-life persona, and everything about the company is done in a big way. The Model S for example, their first electric sedan is a practical car that can scare many purpose-built drag machines on the quarter mile. The Model 3 is cheaper than many executive cars, yet rivals them in luxury and performance. When they turned their eyes to the SUV market, the Model X was the result back in 2015. The flamboyant feature here are the falcon doors for second and third row passengers. This 2022 Tesla Model X Plaid has just 3,690 miles since new, and is the most potent variant on offer. Why not treat yourself to the fastest SUV on the planet right now?
Tesla designs are the work of Franz von Holzhausen, and the brand has developed a signature identity that’s instantly recognizable. Even before the Falcon Doors or Tesla crest are seen on this 2022 Tesla Model X Plaid, you know who made it. Sporting a Midnight Silver Metallic paint coat, and rolling on blacked 22-inch twin five spoke alloy wheels, it looks different from the other mid-sizers in the SUV segment. Of course, when the Falcon Doors open, everyone will be captivated. The black six-seat interior might look spartan, but don’t let that fool you as Tesla believe in minimal buttons. Everything is controlled via the 17-inch center touchscreen with tilt, while instrument cluster duties for the driver are taken over by a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. There’s another 8-inch touchscreen for the rear as well. Amenities include dual-zone climate control, 22-speaker 960-watt audio system, electric seats that are heated, as well as ventilated for front occupants, and the Yoke steering wheel. You’ve got Bluetooth, phone integration and ample charging options for smart devices too. Let’s not forget the on-board wireless gaming capability with processing power to rival the best consoles on the market.
This 2022 Tesla Model X Plaid offers 1,020hp of total output, thanks to a tri-motor set-up that drives all four wheels. Zero to sixty is a mind-blowing 2.5 seconds (with rollout), and average range when you’re driving like a normal person is rated at over 330 miles (EPA). The top speed is limited at 163mph, and you can avail yourself of Tesla’s supercharging network since this Model X Plaid supports up to 250kW supercharging.
