The 600 horsepower Bentley Bentayga is a monster of an automobile, a massive feat of engineering and speed. But it is absolutely walked by the even more massive Tesla Model X.
Tesla, the little American car company every other automaker loves to hate, recently lent a Model X to Fortune for a review. The car was not what one might expect of a $150,000 luxury car, unless something like an old Jaguar has been in your ownership history.
When the Tesla Model S launched, we called it the world’s most expensive beta test, since the copious quality issues made early adopters seem like guinea pigs. It’s been a few years, and while the fit and finish of the Model S has vastly improved, the new Model X seems to still have a long way to go.
As a society full of innovation and new technology, we give a lot of attention to Tesla Motors and its semi-autonomous features. But even for owners, not all of those features come free—permanently, that is. According to some recent Tesla forum posts, it looks as if the company now offers free trials for fancier perks.
Tesla claims that its Model X crossover has the largest windshield of any production car. It’s also been a developmental nightmare that was delayed again and again for issues with suppliers and engineering those damn Falcon doors. Now it may have a problem with light ghosting in the big fancy windshield causing…
Tesla’s online configurator for the Model X went live today, and the automaker hid an additional Easter egg in their kid-haulin’ egg on wheels: a modest power and price bump for the base model.
Tesla Motors announced to owners and reporters today that it will issue a voluntary recall for all Model X SUVs built in late March and earlier over a possible safety issue with the optional third-row seats.
Earlier this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke of establishing a European manufacturing facility while attending a Tesla owners event in France. Well the people of France were listening, and it’s now reported that the government has offered the electric automaker a re-purposed nuclear power facility as a potential site…
Everyone in Chicago, please, stop what you’re doing right now. There’s an emergency, and we need everybody’s help. A man’s Tesla Model X has been shat upon, and we must help find this rampaging car-shitter, who is still at large. At least, that’s what this Craigslist ad tells us.
It’s easy to forget that the Tesla Model X was intended to start deliveries back in early 2014. Now Tesla faces a legal battle after dropping one of its parts suppliers during development for issues with effectively engineering the “falcon” door system, in part delaying the launch of the electric SUV.
The 2016 Tesla Model X costs $80,000 before you start adding options or tax breaks. But you’d only know that if you were on “the list” to buy one of the first ones. Now you just want to see it because you can’t, right?
Tesla seems happy to talk about the new Model X as an SUV. It’s been called a crossover, too. But is it either? Did Elon actually just make a minivan?
The first Tesla Model X full-electric SUVs have hit the road this week, and we got a a little time to shake it down all the way to 80 MPH in the company parking lot.
The air conditioning system in the new Tesla Model X has three modes: circulating air from outside the car, re-circulating air that’s already inside the cabin, and a “bioweapon defense mode,” triggered by a button on the dashboard, which creates positive pressure inside the cabin to keep outside particles at bay. So,…
Eccentric billionaire, space privateer and auto manufacturer Elon Musk has felt it necessary that his new car, the Tesla Model X, come with protection against a bioweapons attack. And so it does.
The “Falcon Wing” rear doors on the Tesla Model X are pretty sweet. Everyone is amazed they actually made it to the production car. But what happens when you’re in a tight parking space with only a few inches of room?
The first owners are finally taking delivery of the gull-door’d electric crossover they’ve been waiting about three years for: the Tesla Model X. Here’s what we learned from a close look and a quick spin around the parking lot.
