Like the 2021 Model S, the Model X has received a number of updates for the new model year, but the biggest news is the arrival of the Plaid variant, which has a total of 1,020 horsepower. Previously, the most powerful Model X you could get had "just" 778 hp. Tesla claims this new Model X will sprint to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and top speed is clocked at 163 mph. The Model X Plaid can achieve a 340-mile range.
Design-wise, the front end has been tweaked and there are new 20- and 22-inch wheel design options. You'll also spot a new rear diffuser. The interior, however, now has that somewhat controversial yoke-style steering wheel and an impressive 17-inch horizontally-mounted touchscreen display screen.
Sales are currently underway with pricing beginning at $119,990, though this does not include any state or federal tax incentives.
