When it comes to Electric car tech, there are few who’d argue that Tesla are the clear front-runners in the field. With mainstream manufacturers still playing catchup in 2021, the technological march was well and truly stolen by Tesla. And this 2020 Tesla Model X Long Range is a prime example of how, after the Model S sedan, Tesla aimed to branch out into the SUV marketplace with their Model X family car. This example, located in Florida, has just 11200 miles on the clock and has the added value of being the seven-seat variant. It has the optional and surprisingly spacious third-row of seats installed from the factory.
Central to the Model X’s interior is the 17-inch screen that all commands and controls are routed through—even the glovebox opening is controlled via the display. The Model X benefits from over-the-air updates, much like a modern smartphone. Updates enable Tesla to roll out new features periodically. This 2020 Model X Long Range Plus features the Cream Premium interior with Oakwood décor. It also includes access to Tesla’s Level-2 Autonomy sweet, Autopilot, an optional extra that has been activated on our subject car. The exterior is finished in Tesla’s multi-coat Pearl White, with 20-inch wheels. Perhaps the most striking features of every Model X are the large and fantastically-engineered gull-wing doors that open upwards. From whatever way you look at it, the Tesla Model X is a statement and conversion piece for both fans of cars and fans of tech.
As with any all-electric car, the battery range is always going to take precedence. For the Model X Long Range Plus, Tesla claims their 100kWh battery is good for 630km. Despite weighing more than petrol-powered SUVs, this family car can accelerate to 100km/h in 4.6 seconds—impressive for any seven-seat-capable vehicle. It does so thanks to the combined power of 398kWs from dual motors and all-wheel drive.
