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!

    Much better looking than the I Pace. Still haven't figured out what Jaguar is using the front grill for on an EV? I just write that quirky stuff off on "being" British. Oh, and do Jaguar, MB, BMW or Audi have a supercharger network? Nope, nada, nyet.

    There are cup holders in the back. The hood closes very easily, but because the entire car is rust-free aluminium, it should never be closed like it was here as it will dent - place a hand on each side of the hood and press down once, then it’s closed. If you have a 5-seater you’ll have 2200 litres in the back trunk!! It’s an amazing car and the price has just been reduced by roughly £40-50K 😱

    “When you put your foot down it eats into your battery range.” That’s the same as fossil fuel cars, Matt. Floor it, and it will consume more fuel.
    Most people drive 25 miles a day, which can be recharged at home, and you’ll never have to see a petrol station ever again in your life. For longer trips, the car plans your route so that you visit a Tesla Supercharger. I could live with that easily, if the Model X was cheaper. I know it’s a great car, but the price is a big turn off.

    And not being able to fold the middle seats with no decent storage space in the front except on sides and the leg space looks crazy tight!
    Would never buy this.
    The only thing is the doors open funky and it just looks great but I wouldn’t call it a family car at all especially having 5 children of my own.
    Citroen c4 Picasso’s is excellent.
    The new look is beautiful and slender, the compartments in the front are perfect.
    All 7 seats are brilliant with a good amount of leg room even for the last two seats without anyone being squashed and my kids are teens so they’re fussy as hell with space and they’re tall but I could never fault the Picasso’s.
    The next best thing to the old ford galaxy.

    If electricity produced from fossil fuel is used to charge the electric cars then how it is eco friendly 🤔

    • Hemiacetal
      Hemiacetal Month ago

      Electricity is not produced from fossil fuels only. Also the CO2 emission from an electric car+fossil fuel power plant is 1/4 of the emission from an ordinary car+power plant.
      Go and research a little bit on your own.

    0-60 on the P100D is 2.9 seconds! There are cup holders for the second row in the middle. Who the hell would want a sun blind that big? Further more the glass is so well tinted in the upper part you dont need it. 7 seater option is actually cheaper than the most expensive 6 seat option! Get you facts correct buddy most of your negative comments are no true.

    There’s someone in the driver seat when the car is driving in circles. Autopilot is an aid! The car is not autonomous so don’t lie to people. I don’t know why you would do that just for the shot. You could even hear the car complaining about the doors being open telling that asshole behind the wheel not to drive. You could have bent the doors.

    Few things have changed since Aug 2017
    1. Middle seats are foldable.
    2. The supercharging network is huge and the car only needs 15-25min top up to get 80% charge. Not 45 mins.
    3. The car's onboard navigation and range estimation is very accurate and will tell you exactly where to stop for charging. (Route planner)
    4. The falcon wings are practical and work just fine. I own a car and I'm telling you. (Ignore the 13-year-olds commenting here)
    5. The fit and finish have improved significantly.
    6. The car has Autopilot Version 9 (Car sees with 8 camera's, Radar and Ultrasonics) and autopilot works great. (Requires full supervision of the driver)
    7. Tesla is upgrading its Autopilot HW suite to version 3 soon with a super-powerful computer that can handle their super neural network. (Means level 4 self-driving is close to reality) and any cars built with hardware suite 2.5 is easy to upgrade with a small chip plug and play.
    8. The car's onboard cameras can be used as a dashcam.
    9. Remote Tesla app is improved and can heat the car remotely (Even seats, steering wheel)
    10. If you install a level 2 charger at home you can 100% charge the car in under 4hrs.
    11. Version 9.0 firmware has activated all cameras and the car has blind spot detection, vehicle type recognition, pedestrian, cyclist recognition.
    12. New update enables "Nav on autopilot" feature which enables automatic overtaking slow vehicles and intelligent driving)
    13. The car UI is improved significantly and much pleasant to use.
    14. EU Tesla owners get Spotify premium lifetime to stream as much music as they want. (US users get Slacker I think)
    15. The supercharging network is massive and you can drive from north Norway to South Portugal)
    Few not so good things.
    1. No 360' parking view so still some blind spots when parking.
    2. The over the air updates can create bugs and sometimes cause error messages.
    3. Autopilot is still not 100% safe on normal roads but works perfectly fine on motorways. (Auto lane change is amazing)
    4. Nav on Autopilot is great but still need a lot of work.
    5. If you damage the car it can take forever to get it fixed due to slow parts supply chain.
    6. Customer service is OK and could be improved.
    7. The car's interior quality is still not that great compared to some other ICE vehicles like Audi Q7. (Nowhere near in my opinion)
