For 2019, the most direct rival to the Model X is the E-tron—Audi’s new fully electric SUV.
The E-tron doesn’t come close to matching the Model X on range, but it provides good performance, a very quiet ride, and a more luxurious interior than the Model X at a lower price.
Some may even prefer the more traditional look and feel of the E-tron, which was conceived to fit in with the rest of the gasoline Audi lineup.
The next closest all-electric model is the Jaguar I-Pace, although the I-Pace is a smaller vehicle that’s quite versatile but barely has room for five.
A plush interior and great handling distinguish the I-Pace, and Jaguar has built its EV to accept Tesla-style over-the-air updates.
The Porsche Cayenne and Volvo XC90 are two traditional luxury SUVs that come in hybrid versions.
The Cayenne E-Hybrid stands out for its performance pedigree, while the XC90, in T8 plug-in hybrid form, is the top-trim version of this luxurious SUV that’s distinctive inside and out.
Finally, we’re including the Tesla Model Y on this list because Tesla is already taking orders for its much more affordable SUV, which won’t actually see first deliveries until late 2020.
The Model Y forgoes the fancy rear doors but has the cleaner interior layout of the Model 3—as well as an optional seven-passenger layout.
Although the Model X will continue, the base price of the Model Y (at around $40,200) will be less than half as much as the Model X.
