Tesla Model X 2018 electric SUV review | Mat Watson Review

  • Published on Aug 11, 2017
  • Nothing on the road looks quite like a Tesla Model X. It's not just imposing, its falcon wing doors are downright stunning, but what's it like once you get underneath its all-electric skin? I take an in-depth look at this futuristic seven-seater to see if it's the way forward or just a diversion.
    NOTE You can now fold the down middle seats - whoopee!

    I saw one of these in a supermarket car park earlier. I didn’t realise how big the damn thing is! It’s vast! Like a massive old shape Prius. Yeah, I said it. Fight me 🥊🤫

    Ugly vehicle line. Excellent technology. And I agree it's not an SUV. But the false use of the SUV label is helping sales.
    Now if Karma Automotive can invest in a SUV and merge with WorkForce to create an all electric car company with an entire vehicle lineup, Tesla would be forced to improve their looks, finish quality, and possibly price themselves into reality. But that's just me. I'm not an Apple fan. As such, excluded from the cool kids. Perhaps that's why I see Tesla as a hyped up, overpriced fad. Once I see the new roaster, in the flesh, I may have a change of heart. As it is now the bland, stale styling expired years ago.

    Four attempts to close the front trunk, also four attempts for Elon Musk to launch his SpaceX Falcon I rocket. So shutting up a Model X's front trunk is actually as difficult as launching a rocket lol.

    this car looks amazing, until you get to the rear half, which looks hideous, like a giant sat on a normal, square SUV, and turned it into this. However, the third row of seats looks fine, until you want to look outside, which you could do better in the second row of a Mustang.

    Hi Mat
    I general I always like your videos, but it is clear you do not know Tesla and all it stands for. You say in the video that Tesla has a minimal design, but what you do not say is that Tesla did this so that your car ALWAYS look like the newest model inside, because they update that. Of all the cars in the world Tesla is the only people that fixes issues on the go. Do you know that only something like 30 Tesla's where ever stolen and only 3 was not recovered.
    I do think you are always fair with the things you say, but I also think that there is so much more to the Tesla experience and tech that to compare it with any other cars is simply not on. It is the MOST SAVE car on the road, so perhaps the guy in the Merc can save his money or even have a better interior, but he might loose his life.
    We can really go on and on.

    Now the hype is over and dust has settled its evident just how crap these cars are. Rock bottom in reliability and you always have range anxiety. The second hand market for these will soon be a joke. Also the owner is a total douche who was jealous that some British divers found those kids in that Thai cave yet he came out with a useless submarine for the rescue that didn’t work. The guy now thinks he’s going to the moon but if the rocket is anything like the cars or submarine it’s got no chance of getting there

      No, he won't. He got a hard smack for his Twitter blurps.
      They'll release Model Y which will be an affordable SUV like the Model 3. They are working on a complete refresh of the Model S and X with all-new interior. They hired the interior lead engineer from Volvo a couple years ago, so all new cars will have much better interior. If you have ever sat in the XC90 or S90, you know he's the real deal. The interior and the fit and finish has improved recently in all models. They also made premium options standard. You already got a lot more for you money with more range.

    My father who is 80 waited three years for this model. Lots of problems with the touch screen and being locked out of the vehicle. When sitting in the front seat the ride is fine; the second and third row is terrible. Less than 300 miles on a charge is a joke for 108,000 dollars.
