The 2016 Tesla Model X nominally competes with large luxury SUVs from not only Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz, but also Range Rover, Porsche, and even Bentley.
It doesn't have the off-road capability or cargo flexibility that some of them offer, but its mix of smoothness, performance, and energy efficiency is unparalleled.
The Land Rover Range Rover can go places the Tesla can't, although even its new diesel option can't compete on efficiency.
The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class will seat seven far more comfortably, and its cargo area has acres of room.
The Porsche Cayenne has the performance chops, but only five seats, and even its plug-in hybrid is thirsty.
The Cadillac Escalade is a luxury vehicle that puts the U in SUV but falls down on poise and ride quality.
The BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo may come closest to the Model X in form, but there's no third row of seats.
