A flurry of competitors including the Jaguar I-Pace have arrived to challenge the Model X.
The smaller Jag lacks the gimmicky falcon doors but doesn’t have a third row.
A more conservative choice would be the Audi E-Tron.
It’s designed to look and feel like its gas-powered siblings on the other side of the showroom and offer all the traditional luxury conveniences, including a luxurious interior and a soft, quiet ride.For more mainstream options, there are the Porsche Cayenne and Volvo XC90 crossovers, which both offer plug-in hybrid variants.
You can’t get long-distance pure electric driving from these two, but you can get improved efficiency around town.
Finally, we’re including the Tesla Model Y on this list because of its affordability and available seven-passenger seating.
It won’t be quite as space as the Model X, but with a starting price in line with that of the Model 3, forgoing a few extra cubic feet of space may be a worthwhile concession.
You also won’t have to deal with the falcon doors.
