Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


Overall Rating

Tesla has toned down the number of trims on the Model X for 2019 by just offering the Performance and Long Range trims, unlike the previous year model that had the 75D, 100D and P100D. The 2 trims have been priced at $78,950 and $94,950 respectively and the models remain unchanged from 2018 in terms of Engine, Performance and Equipment.What has changed are the rivals. To challenge the monopoly of Tesla in the EV domain, Audi has rolled out its brand new e-tron SUV while Jaguar has brought its I-Pace on sale in the US. Mercedes is ready with its brand New EQC SUV and will be releasing it soon as well.

The Performance Trim is cheaper, faster and only falls behind the range of the long range trim by a very small margin. Hence, it is the trim to go for.

2019 Tesla Model X electric Engine and Performance

The 2019 Tesla Model X raises the bar for SUV performance with its nimble handling and breathtaking acceleration.-Cars.USnews.com

Tesla doesn't like to publish the power and torque figures of its cars and uses parameters like battery size, range and 0-60 timings as a reference to the performance of the Cars. That being said, Tesla does give an idea of the type of motors that drives the Tesla Forward. As with the Tesla logo that represents the cross-section of an Electrical Induction Motor, the 2019 Tesla Model X employs a Dual 3 Phase, 4 Pole Induction motor with copper rotors. The Front Axle is powered by 1 motor while the rear axle is powered by the other one, hence giving the Car the AWD drivetrain.

There is a single speed direct transmission that does the job of transmitting power from the engine to the wheels.The Model X is based on the Model S fastback, and so it’s not surprising that it drives like a somewhat taller, heavier version of the S.

Characteristic of all Electric Cars, Torque is transmitted almost instantaneously to the wheels without any transmission loss that we usually associate with Gas-powered cars. The Transmission is quick to transfer power with the smallest throttle inputs and makes for effortless power delivery at all speeds.


The Model X has reached the zenith in delivering acceleration which to the most competitors remain only a dream. Every model in the lineup sprints from zero to 60 mph in under 5 seconds. The performance trim takes less than 3 seconds to achieve the feat, making it one of the fastest vehicles around SUV or otherwise.

Competition wise, the Jaguar I-Pace comes the closest to the Tesla, while the e-Tron takes the most time to do the dahs. What's impressive is the fact that all these cars take less than 6 seconds to do the 60MPH and this itself is no small feat to achieve.

Ride and Handling

The 2019 Tesla Model X is a hefty SUV, weighing in over 5500lbs. and that heft tends to affect the ride and handling of the Tesla. While the motors are fast to respond, the heft of the Tesla makes it feel a tad bit slow to respond than it actually is. But clever weight distribution courtesy of a low-mounted battery pack and a powerful motor helps the Tesla to keep body roll at bay through turns or while changing lanes on the highway. 2 Driver modes namely Chill and Sport are available and act as per their names. In both modes, however, one wouldn't feel the Model X losing out on breath while performing overtakes.

When driven at City speeds on the City, the Model X maintains its composure and feel very planted and stable. While it isn't as comfortable as the Audi, Tesla is definitely better to be in when compared to the Jaguar. The Regenerative Braking system is swift as well and transition between frictional and regen braking is seemed less at all speeds and situations.


The 2019 Tesla Model X SUV has brakes that match its acceleration. The brake pedal provides a smooth and progressive feel that is very easy to manage. Even after being one of the heaviest compact SUVs out there, it gives one of the best results in the brake tests.

The Regenerative braking is smooth in operation and moving to the most aggressive mode, allows a single pedal operation as well. The Brake pedals feel assuring to respond and never feel squeaky or spongy in responsiveness. There is a fair bit of confidence while braking at high speeds and the regen braking system, kicks in at the appropriate times.

2019 Tesla Model X electric Fuel Economy

Like all Electric Cars, the Tesla Model X run on electricity and need charging from charging stations or your domestic outlet. One can charge the Model X via a standard 120-volt/240V outlet present at his house, with the latter being taking far lesser time than the former option. Model X owners also have access to Tesla's ever-increasing nationwide network of supercharger stations. 

At one of these stations, you can recharge up to 80 per cent of the battery's full range in about half an hour. Additionally, owners can get up to 400 kWh (or about 1,000 miles) of charging for free each year at the Supercharger network, with a small fee incurred after that.

Towing Capacity




In terms of numbers, the Tesla Model X loses out to the All-New Jaguar I-pace while the Audi E-Tron, with its 248.5 miles of range loses out on the same. The advantage with Tesla is that the Supercharger stations are available in all parts of America and Tesla owners enjoy a lot of flexibility in that respect.

Seating and Comfort

The Model X can seat 7 people inside it while the competition allows for only 5.

These double-hinged doors open from the roof and feature sensors to avoid obstacles when they open. Heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel are available.

The front seats are comfortable, supportive, and have plenty of room. Thanks to the panoramic windshield, driver visibility is outstanding. The second-row seats have ample space, but they lack the generous accommodations of some competitors' second rows. Additionally, some tall passengers may want more legroom. The third row is best left for the children, which isn't uncommon in a 3-row SUV.

The third row folds flat, which helps when you want to haul larger items. However, the second row doesn't fold at all, limiting cargo carrying versatility. The Audi however can haul the most cargo while the Tesla comes in between the other 2.

Design and Dimensions

The 2019 Tesla Model X has an impactful design and looks extremely beautiful upfront. The only thing that's missing is a front grille which can make a car look even more appealing but Tesla is an electric car doesn't require one. Tesla doors open upwards making it look even cooler. The car is sleek and has low centre-of-gravity which adds up to its safety too.

While designing the Model X, Tesla clearly had to make some tradeoffs. While seven-seat crossover SUVs are normally big, boxy affairs, the electric automaker opted to give the Model X a smooth, rounded teardrop shape. Most of the mass is concentrated below the cabin which equips it with the lowest centre of gravity an SUV can have.

In terms of dimensions, the Tesla is the biggest when compared to its rivals in terms of length, width and height. This translates to a commanding presence on the road and great space on the inside. Where the Tesla falls behind is in the ground clearance department as it offers the least within the competition.
