As of 2018, the Tesla Model X has no direct competitors.
Two are on the horizon for next year, though: the Audi e-tron and Jaguar I-Pace, both five-seat all-electric crossovers smaller than the Model X.
Given its price, it competes with the largest luxury SUVs from European makers, many of which now offer plug-in hybrid versions with minimal electric ranges of 10 to 30 miles.
All of them offer far better luxury trim and all-weather ability than the Model X.
The big Range Rover is the definitive luxury SUV, combining supreme off-road versatility with lavish luxury features in a way every other carmaker tries to imitate; its plug-in hybrid model is about to hit the road.
The Porsche Cayenne is the sportiest pricey SUV, and it can’t be beat for handling and roadholding regardless of powertrain.
Even the Bentley Bentayga, deliberately designed (using Audi underpinnings) to outdo the Range Rover in ultra-luxury, will have a plug-in model.
Only the massive seven-seat Mercedes GLS Class forgoes a version with a plug; it’s surprisingly capable and confident for its size.
In the all-electric front, only the Chevrolet Bolt EV offers range that compares to the Model X and a tall, upright five-door shape that Chevy insists on calling a crossover despite its lack of all-wheel drive.
