2018 Tesla Model X Review

The 2018 Tesla Model X is the sole all-electric utility vehicle sold in the U.S. this year. Available in five- or seven-seat versions with all-wheel drive standard, its rated ranges of 238 to 295 miles should deliver at least 200 miles in most circumstances even at highway speeds. Tesla doesn’t offer traditional trim levels, but the Model X has three versions: the “75D”  has a 75-kilowatt-hour battery pack, the “100D”  has a 100-kwh pack, and the top-of-the-line “P100D” also has a 100-kwh pack but more powerful motors. It’s Tesla’s hot-rod crossover SUV, a vehicle with startling acceleration.
