The Tesla Model X Plaid is the fastest-accelerating SUV in the world currently. 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.
Last year's Full Self-Driving Capability suite remains, but its price increases from $12,000 to $15,000. With updates over the air, these features are constantly updated. The package includes navigation on Autopilot, auto lane change, summon, a full self-driving computer, auto park, and traffic light/stop sign control. It is joined this year by a cheaper $6,000 Enhanced Autopilot package that offers most of those features except for the full self-driving computer and traffic-light/stop-sign control. Larger 22-inch Turbine alloy wheels cost $5,500, a wall connector costs $475, and mobile connector goes for $230.
