Tesla Model X EPA Range Is Better than Previously Estimated

Tesla Model X


Tesla is about to officially deliver the first of its Model X crossovers, but one key fact about the new model is out now: it's range. According to the EPA, owners can expect to travel up to 257 miles on a charge.


The 257-mile figure is for the Model X 90D, which also nets an EPA rating of 92 MPGe. The more powerful P90D version is rated at 250 miles and 89 MPGe. All-wheel drive—as denoted by the 'D' in the model names—is standard with either version. The company had estimated the vehicle's range at 240 miles.


Previously revealed specs also show the Model X to have a 155-mph top speed, and a factory-claimed 0-to-60 time of 3.8 seconds—or 3.2 seconds with the available Ludicrous Mode update.


The Model X figures aren't quite as good those of the Model S with the same, 90-kWh setup. The sedan ratings are 270 miles and 100 MPGe for the all-wheel-drive 90D, and 253 miles and 93 MPGe for the P90D sedan. But then again, the Model S doesn't seat seven, nor does it have those cool, Falcon Wing rear doors.
