Tesla's design philosophy is based on simplicity, and this carries through to the Model X SUV. The basic shape has aged remarkably well considering updates are few and far between. LED headlights and fog lights feature on a smooth and simple front end but, one of the most notable features is the panoramic windshield that is the largest on any production vehicle. Flush door handles and smooth creases define the profile, while 20-inch Cyberstream wheels fill the smooth arches, although 22-inch Turbine wheels in a dark finish are available. At the rear, a deployable spoiler can be fitted, while the roof features two individual rear-seat sunroofs.
The Tesla Model X is an impressive people and cargo hauler thanks to its relatively large dimensions. Length measures 198.3 inches while the width excluding the mirrors measures 78.7 inches. The wheelbase measures 116.7 inches and, in its highest setting, the suspension can allow for up to nine inches of ground clearance. Due to the battery packs, curb weight is considerable and starts at 5,185 pounds.

Just one color is free with your purchase of a Tesla Model X: Pearl White Multi-Coat. Other options that cost $1,500 each are Solid Black, Midnight Silver Metallic, and Deep Blue Metallic. Red Multi-Coat is also available, but this costs $2,500. The optional 22s are finished in a darker shade and have a Turbine-style design, but we'd be happy with the standard silver finish on the wheels, although the black does add some menace.
