2016 Tesla Model X: We Chose a Nice Color
Travis Langness, Automotive Editor on August 24, 2016
With our last long-term Tesla, we went with a dark blue or as Tesla calls it, "Deep Metallic Blue." It was good-looking, no doubt, and certainly better than all the boring beige sedans on the road today, but it wasn't my favorite. With our long-term 2016 Tesla Model X we opted for a fantastically deep red. The red looks good at night and even better in sunlight. Tesla calls it, drumroll please... "Red Multi-Coat." OK, so the name isn't exactly a charmer, but boy, does the paint look good.
I've seen several Model X's in Los Angeles, in varying colors like black, white, black, gray and black. If we're being nitpicky, none of those are actually colors, they're more like shades. Tesla sells the Model X in two different shades of black, two different shades of white, a silver metallic (gray) and a color they call Titanium Metallic (also gray), but all these other shades pale in comparison to the Red Multi-Coat.
