2022 Tesla Model X: Pricing, Performance, and Specs

Tesla Model X


The brand ethos of the EV automakers is best exemplified by the 2022 Tesla Model X. It offers a one-of-a-kind, but pricey, proposal in the expanding EV-crossover market since it is swift, high-tech, and has a spectacular trick in the form of its Falcon-wing rear doors.

The Model X has all-wheel drive as standard and two electric motors with a combined output of 670 horsepower. The Plaid, a three-motor variant, is capable of an incredible 1020 horsepower and is claimed to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds.

According to Tesla, that mega-motor version will be accessible by the end of 2022. The Model X is fairly agile considering its size and weight, albeit it isn't as agile as the virtually identical Model S sedan.

A massive screen that dominates the dashboard and offers touch-sensitive access to the majority of the Model X's capabilities makes the interior a study in modernism. The entire family may fit comfortably in the third row of seats, and captain's chairs can be specified for the second row.

What Has Changed For 2022?

The Long Range model from last year is now simply known as Model X, and its estimated range decreases from 363 to 351 miles per charge. The high-performance Plaid variant, which debuted last year, now estimates a driving range of 335 miles per charge rather than 340. The uncomfortable rectangular (yoke-style) steering wheel from last year is still in use.

Tesla Model X: EV Motor And Performance

The 100 kWh battery, two electric motors, all-wheel drive, and single-speed transmission make up the powertrain of the 2022 Tesla Model X. The Model X boasts a lightning-quick takeoff, even with a modest tap of the pedal, thanks to its impressive 670 horsepower.

Three electric motors in the Model X Plaid combine to provide 1,020 horsepower, with acceleration that will have you pinned to your seat. You'll undoubtedly start looking at nearby drag strips in your leisure time.

The dual-motor Model X has a top speed of 155 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. The Model X Plaid makes a significant improvement: it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, similar to a supercar, and can complete a quarter-mile run in 9.9 seconds. A 163 mph peak speed is available for the Model X Plaid.

Tesla Model X: Battery Life, Charging, And Range

A battery large enough to support Variant X's advertised 351-mile driving range is included as standard; upgrading to the faster Plaid model reduces the projected driving range to 335 miles.

One of Tesla's Superchargers, which is spread out across the nation, may be quickly recharged. Tesla provides in-home charging equipment for purchase. Charging at home using a 240V or 120V connection will be slower, but certainly more convenient for owners.

Tesla Model X: Interior And Comfort

The cabin of the 2022 Model X is sparse, echoing its forward-thinking ambitions more so than any attempt to provide sheer luxury. The majority of the components are of decent quality, but given the car's six-figure price, you might be disappointed with the overall design and lack of flair.

And even if the most recent Model X continues to gradually address long-standing issues with construction, it still falls short of the high standards for fit and finish set by other luxury companies.

Tesla Model X: Connectivity

The dashboard is dominated by a sizable touchscreen infotainment system that operates almost all of the Model X's features and settings. The gauge cluster is a supplemental digital readout located in front of the driver.

Although Tesla's infotainment system is undoubtedly cutting-edge, neither Apple CarPlay nor Android Auto is supported. The little display provided to rear-seat passengers offers amusement and, presumably, some control over the car's features.

Tesla Model X: Pricing

The Tesla Model X Dual-Motor All-Wheel Drive has the highest base price among opulent electric SUVs, starting at $114,990. The list price of the Model X Plaid is $138,990. You can personalize and add a maximum of around $22,000 to $28,500 worth of features, depending on the model you choose.

Which One To Purchase?

The Plaid variant has three electric motors and is guaranteed to accelerate quickly, but it is very pricey. We would save money because its 335-mile estimated driving range is shorter than that of the base model, which costs less.

Due to the immediateness of the electric motors' power delivery, the base Model X nevertheless feels incredibly rapid despite having an estimated driving range of up to 351 miles.
