A 7-passenger SUV with instant torque

The future of the automobile just might be all-electric, and it's hard to argue that Tesla has been one of its key pioneers. Today is a great time to take a look at an electric vehicle (EV) and the Model X is a great starting point. The family-friendly SUV seats five, six, or seven people depending on the configuration. So, whether you need a road trip companion or soccer team ride, the 2018 Tesla Model X is a pretty cool EV option. It's got plenty of range for those long commutes, a minimalist interior, and those very cool falcon-wing doors that are sure to turn heads.

5 reasons to buy the 2018 Tesla Model X

1. Long-range options

The notion of a road trip in an electric car can give some people anxiety but it shouldn't, especially in a Tesla! On a full charge, the base 2018 Tesla Model X 75D starts at an EPA-estimated range of 238 miles while the 100D version gets a boost to an EPA-estimated 295 miles.

 Even the performance-focused P100D still has an EPA-estimated range of 289 miles on a full charge.

2. Supercar speed

Many predicted that the electric vehicle era would be boring. Just silent appliance shuttling us from place to place. However, any vehicle that can hit 60 mph in under three seconds is far from boring, and that's exactly what the 2018 Model X P100D can do (according to the manufacturer, when new). So if you are looking for a little adrenaline during your daily commute, check it out.

3 . Practical interior

In addition to long-range battery tech and supercar speed, the 2018 Tesla Model X has 26 cu-ft of cargo space with all seats in place. That increases to an impressive 88.1 cu-ft with the rear seats folded. In the standard seating configuration, you can seat five, but the 2018 Model X has optional seating for up to seven. This gives you the flexibility to take your whole crew on that next electric road trip.

4. Standard AWD

All versions of the 2018 Model X feature standard all-wheel drive, so your EV can be ready for whatever comes your way. Powered by super-responsive, independent electric motors, the Model X is designed to instantly control torque to the front and rear wheels. So, if you are looking for improved handling, traction, and stability control, check out the Model X.

5. Falcon wing doors

A vehicle from the future should have a few key futuristic features. Nothing is quite as futuristic as the falcon doors on the Model X. The upward swinging doors define the Model X and will be the central point of any school drop-off or valet stand.

Year Comparison

2016-Present Tesla Model X (First Generation)

The Model X represented Tesla's first SUV and debuted for the 2016 model year. Developed from the same platform as the Model S sedan, the AWD-only Model X can seat up to seven people. Starting with a base 75D trim could opt for the more powerful 90D and performance-focused P90D for the 2016 model year. 

Tesla doesn't do traditional feature and option updates tied to a specific model year. So make sure you look carefully at your future Model X to see if it has exactly what you are looking for. In 2017, Tesla added even more powerful versions including the 100D and P100D and by 2018 they had dropped the P90D and went with three variants including the 75D, 100D, and P100D. 

The 2019 model year saw a big update to the trim levels. Now called the Standard Range, Long Range (also called Extended Range), and Performance, finding the right mix of range and power isn't hard. For 2020, the trim range was updated once again with the Long Range now known as the Long Range Plus. 

In 2021, Tesla updated the Model X's interior with a new dash, steering wheel, and infotainment screen. You can choose from Long Range and Plaid trims for 2021, the latter being Tesla's fun performance version. For 2022 it changed again to just the standard Model X and Model X Plaid.
