2022 Tesla Model X Plaid Trims & Specs

The 2022 Tesla Model X Plaid is the fastest-accelerating SUV in the world. With three motors producing over 1,000 hp, it is a showcase of how far EV development has come in a relatively short time. That power goes to all four wheels and allows for a 0-60 time of only 2.5 seconds. Unlike the regular Model X, the Plaid's range is limited to 333 miles on a full charge.

The minimalist exterior comes with 20-inch wheels, Falcon Wing rear doors, and LED lighting. Six occupants are seated across three rows, and all have a heated seat. Those in front also have ventilated seats, and upholstery is in leatherette. A 17-inch touchscreen interface is joined by a 12.3-inch digital driver's display and another eight-inch touchscreen for second-row passengers, giving this cabin a suitably high-tech feel.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Tesla Model X Plaid?

At the time of writing, the Tesla Model X Plaid carried a price tag of $138,990. But since Tesla keeps hiking its prices, it seems inevitable that the Plaid will soon surpass the $140k mark. This price excludes a destination charge of $1,200.

Although it is the most expensive you can buy, it could be considered a performance bargain since conventionally-powered SUVs from Aston Martin and Lamborghini are both slower in a straight line and cost over $200,000.

🚗What 2022 Tesla Model X Plaid Model Should I Buy?

As there is only one trim available, the choice of which Model X Plaid to buy becomes quite simple. While we still think that the normal Model X is a better buy due to its lower price, longer range, and still-phenomenal performance, the Plaid provides a standard of performance that is untouchable for an SUV. We think that performance like this deserves to be flaunted, at least a little, so we'd have ours with Red Multi-Coat paint and the 22-inch Turbine wheels. The black and white interior isn't as practical but looks so much better than the standard black one, and ticking the box for Full Self-Driving gives you access to some truly advanced driver-assist features. We only wish these features worked well more consistently.

In this spec, the Model X Plaid costs $162,190 including destination. That is a lot of money, but the Model X Plaid is an SUV like no other.
