The best crossover SUV ever
Tiger Driver, 12/29/2017
The front end cost can be reduced by state and federal tax credits if you buy fairly soon, depending on the state. You will also save about $10,000 in the first 4 years based on current gas prices. BTW, all currently new 2017 Tesla Model X vehicles and presumably the 2018 models come with fold-down back seats to add to the storage capacity of the vehicle, and the 4,000 lb. hitch is standard. In 2018, if you get a referral from an existing owner of a Model S or X, you can still get lifetime free charging at Tesla stations (2018). Otherwise, there will be a charge at the Tesla charging stations to charge up. Model 3 owners get charged as well. Now have 13,000 miles on the vehicle without any problems.

In the past 12 years I have owned 18 different vehicles. I purchased the model X 100D 2 months ago. It accelerates faster than my Golf R, Nismo 350 Z, or Infinity M class. The car is as luxurious as my MB E63 AMG and rides as well as my Cadillac CTS-V. Recently I had to take it off-road. I live in the mountains and had to pick up a sick child. The roads were unplowed and recommended chains only. I simply raised the suspension and easily drove miles and miles in 2 feet of snow. It handles as well off road as my Toyota Tacoma. Then driving down the canyon I didn’t have to hit my brakes once because of how the vehicle torque charging works. The canyon is a 65 mph 5-6% grade for 20 miles. Finally, because of the torque charging my battery charged on the way down the canyon. I can’t express how impressive this vehicle is. Elan Musk not only built a competitor he built a game changer.
Little disappointed.

Owned car for three more months and it had to be towed to service center, already. Problems with electronics. Love car but have had a couple of issues with it already.
If only my X can fly
Bamboo, 6/21/2018
Like most consumers, I've owned five different cars and wanted to try something different but also environmentally friendly. As with anything new there's a transition period but in all honesty, I will never go back to gas cars! Beside the supercharging and little to no maintenance, my X is just an incredible work of innovative technology matched with style, efficiency, and green consciousness! The only issue is that for back seat riders you do feel the bumps a bit more because there's not a whole lot of cushion/shock absorption but let's just say given the all-around luxury features, my riders got over it quick. Just love my ride and highly recommended!

More about the 2017 Tesla Model X

The 2017 Tesla Model X is an all-electric midsize crossover SUV that has a mix of appealing and confounding attributes. Like all Teslas, the particulars of its offerings are subject to change at any time and don't necessarily coincide with a typical model-year cycle. Many buyers will visit the options list where a variety of features — some of them unusual — are available.

Offered in four trim levels — 75D, 90D 100D and P100D — the 2017 Tesla Model X is equipped exclusively with two-motor all-wheel drive. All trim levels are differentiated by their battery capacity, which in turn largely correlates to driving range. Option packages are the same across all trim levels. Options run the gamut, and include a sensor-laden Enhanced Autopilot semiautonomous driving mode, numerous 20- and 22-inch wheel options, a towing package, additional seating configurations, heated seats and steering wheel, a cabin materials and door upgrade package, and a high-current charger.

The entry-level 75D is equipped with a 75-kWh battery that provides the least driving range of any Model X. Navigation and a colossal center touchscreen are standard, along with keyless entry and a power tailgate. Five-passenger seating is standard.

Since driving range is such a crucial factor when it comes to electric vehicles such as the Model X, it's worth spending the extra money to step up to the 90D. This has a larger battery for more range, sure, but it's also much quicker. Beyond that is a relatively small premium to the 100D, which isn't any quicker but has an additional 38 miles of range over the 90D. It's a big jump up pricewise to the range-topping P100D, which will appeal to those who want one of the quickest-accelerating cars on the market.

Other minivans and sport-utility vehicles offer significantly more functionality than the 2017 Tesla Model X, but none of them offer electric propulsion. It's a key consideration for many buyers and it renders the Model X the default choice. It is in a segment of one. That situation is expected to change in a year as at least three other manufacturers are planning to release all-electric midsize SUVs. But if you want to buy an electric SUV today, the Model X is the only game in town. Let Edmunds' car-buying tools and expertise guide you when you're ready to buy your own 2017 Tesla Model X.
