The Tesla X brings car tech envy to new heights. It has so many features that makes BMW, Audi, Porsche and even Jaguar worry. The introduction of the Tesla X shows how technology can be taken the heights. Elon Musk revealed the Tesla X at an event in Fremont, California. Every element of the design uses the top technology available today. The Tesla X acts as a billboard of what technology, engineering and creative thinking can do in an SUV.
Those who drive in SUVs usually have kids and loved family members. The air is pulled through a true HEPA filter system, making medical-grade air in cabin that removes bacteria, pollen, viruses and pollutants. This is especially helpful in areas where the air is bad.
The Model X Falcon Wing are a fete of engineering with seamless ingress and egress into the second and third row. Making it easier to put in child’s seats and put children in child seat.They are also a wonder to look at in action.
The double-hinged Falcon Wing doors open up then out, requiring 30 cm of space on the side of the car. Each has capacitive, inductive, and sonar sensors to monitor surroundings making it possible to park in tight spots without hitting any thing.
The doors automatically opens and closes as the driver approaches or exits Model X without the driver having to touch the door.
Seventeen speakers bring concert hall like sound inside Model X.
The 17” center touchscreen offers media, navigation, communications, cabin control and vehicle data. there’s ample room for people, luggage, and big things like surf boards and bikes. For even heavier cargo, Model X is the first electric vehicle with a 5,000 lb. tow capacity.
The electric powertrain, accelerates the Model X from 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and hitting a top speed of 155 mph with zero emissions.
The Model X’s floor-mounted battery provides a low center of gravity and ideal weight distribution which reduces the risk of rollover common in most SUVs. At 0.24, Model X has the lowest drag coefficient of any SUV.
The spoiler automatically adjusts to three positions for maximum visibility and efficiency.
Model X comes with a 90 kWh battery providing customers a driving range of 250 miles on a single charge.
Model X has a large crumple zone to absorb the energy of a high-speed impact. Aluminum pillars reinforced with steel rails protect occupants and the battery while improving roof stiffness.
Model X comes standard with automatic emergency braking and side collision avoidance to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Theworks at high speed.
Every Model X carries a forward-camera, radar, and 360 degree sonar sensors to enable autopilot features.
Tesla will offer over-the-air software updates for more convenience features like Autosteer and Autopark. The Model X will become more and more autonomous.
The latest and greatest technology comes at a luxury price. The features require a $40,000 deposit with a $132,000 price tag, before delivery and other fees that’s about a mid-size car price under the median price of home sold in the United States, $180,000. It does seat seven occupants.
What happens with the Tesla X is that it creates tech envy for the rest of the people on the planet who work for a living wadge. The general rule of thumb is not to spend more than 50% of annual income on the car. The median income in the United States is $52,250.
There is hope for those around the median income. Over time the technology gets cheaper and more affordable
