Tesla Model X SUV (2016 - )

The Model X is an SUV like no other, for the moment at least. Its electric powertrain provides outrageous performance, low running costs and excellent range, while its roomy cabin and Falcon Wing doors give it a unique combination of practicality and head-turning ability. All of this comes at a price, but then no rival has quite the same blend of talents.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Even by the standards of big, premium-badge SUVs, the Model X is expensive. Top-spec versions tip over the £100,000 barrier, while even the cheapest model costs more than a basic Porsche 911.

Rivals such as the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne start at a lot less but they don’t offer the same level of performance as the Model X, and you’ll spend a lot more on fuelling them with petrol or diesel than you would on recharging the Model X.

As a pure EV the Model S is exempt from emissions-based congestion zones and Vehicle Excise Duty (road tax), while company car tax is zero for the 2020/21 tax year and rises to a negligible two per cent from 2022.

Maximum battery range isn’t as good as Tesla’s other (lighter) models but it’s still very good, offering between 301 and 314 miles depending on model. Like every Tesla, the Model S can be charged using a home charger, standard or fast-charge public chargers, or Tesla’s own extensive network of rapid-charge ‘Superchargers’. Tesla gives you the first 400kWh (around 1000 miles worth) of electricity for free, too.

Residual values are expected to be very good, if not as strong as those of the most in-demand SUVs. Tesla operates an ‘as-needed’ policy for servicing, and points out maintenance costs for its car are competitive because they don’t need oil or air filter changes, and feature regenerative braking that reduces wear on brake pads and discs.
