The Tesla Model X just recently started its deliveries to China and Europe. The international press has just begun to review the all-electric SUV. Britain’s Daily Mail wrote that the Model X, “Electric car thinks it’s a Ferrari… this SUV will accelerate hard and fast enough for the G-force to distort your vision and compress your chest. The top-of-the-range model hits 60mph in just 3.2 seconds – a £238,000 Ferrari FF takes 3.8 seconds.” They also report that the Model X, “panoramic windscreen stretches up over your head like the cabin of a fighter jet… [and its] falcon wings were inspired by Star Wars.” But, we’ve all been waiting on Britain’s Top Gear review. What follows are some amazing Tesla Eye Candy photos of the Model X and if you scroll down, you’ll find some incredible video clips of the Model X including some cool footage and feedback from Britain’s most recent Top Gear episode.
Next up, we take a look at some amazing footage from BBC’s Top Gear show. The BBC’s Rory Reid said of the Model X: “Welcome to the future. It’s an electric car that might just do to petrol and diesel what the Ford Model T did to the horse… Forget cylinders and super unleaded. Because the future is cells and super capacitors. There’s no point trying to fight it because you can’t stop it. The future is here. And it’s electric… Electric power gives you no compromises, you don’t have to choose between performance, practicality and eco-friendliness, you have all three things in one package.” We also wanted to feature another video directly from Tesla Motors with some great shots along with testimonials from Model X owners. Check both of the videos out below and enjoy…
