Although things are changing rapidly in the EV segment, the Model X remains a gold standard, even though it’s been around for seven years. It still offers impressive performances and one of the longest ranges among all-electric cars. Therefore, there are still no plans for a full redesign, though the 2024 Tesla Model X will get a couple of interesting updates, which should strengthen its dominant position on the market. It won’t get more power, or a longer range, but it will get a couple of fine tunings, including new brakes, a new glass roof and a new color option.
Other than that, things will remain the same. The 2024 Tesla Model X will continue with familiar strengths, offering excellent acceleration and range, along with a long list of standard equipment. Unfortunately, some of the drawbacks will remain, mainly in terms of the mediocre interior quality and complicated infotainment controls.
2024 Tesla Model X: Changes
So, let’s start with the changes for the 2024 Tesla Model X. As mentioned, there is nothing radical to come, but rather a decent portion of small touches that should make this model even more desirable. First of all, we should mention that this SUV gets a new color option, Ultra Red paint. Other than that, we should also mention that there is a new glass roof, more transparent than before.
Novelties in terms of mechanics are coming too, but only for the high-performance Plain model, which will finally get bigger brakes, with enough stopping power to control the SUV’s mass and 1.020 horsepower.
2024 Tesla Model X Design
Those would be the key updates for the 2024 Tesla Model X. Other than that, things are about to remain the same, starting from the base design approach, which hasn’t changed much since the initial launch in 2016. This model still gains a lot of attention, thanks to its massive glass roof and particularly those gull wing doors. This model also receives a facelift in 2021, but those changes were rather subtle and didn’t change the overall character of the vehicle.
The same is with the adaptive air suspension, which ensures a smooth and comfortable ride. Moreover, the ride is also surprisingly engaging, especially if we consider the curb weight that goes way over 5.000 pounds. On the other hand, we don’t like the steering, while the optional 22-inch wheels can make the ride pretty harsh.
Once again, no bigger changes to come, other than the aforementioned updated glass roof. The 2024 Tesla Model X will continue with the same interior layout, which combines style and simplicity in a pretty nice way. Of course, there is also the massive infotainment screen, which replaces all physical controls and can sometimes be very tricky to use.
As for the passenger space, base models come with five seats and accommodate adults in both rows pretty easily. On the other hand, the optional third row isn’t particularly generous with space and works best for kids. As for the cargo area, you may count on about 15 cubic feet of room behind its third row, 33.8 cubic feet with these seats folded and 81.7 cubic feet with all rear seats folded. That’s actually pretty good for the class.
As mentioned, this SUV is generous with standard equipment. Some of the highlights are goodies like a 17-inch touch screen, a rear-seat 8-inch touch screen, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, navigation, wireless device charging, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, keyless entry, tri-zone automatic climate control and ambient lighting. Additionally, you can get subscription-based Wi-Fi, video and music streaming, karaoke and internet browsing.
2024 Tesla Model X Engine and Performance
With no updates to come, the 2024 Tesla Model X will remain available with two familiar setups. Base models will continue with a dual-motor setup and all-wheel drive. Its max output of 670 horsepower ensures 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and that’s plenty enough for a vast majority of potential buyers. If you’re looking for ultimate performance, the Plaid trim will remain on offer, with three electric motors and a total output of 1.020 horsepower, which is enough to make 60 in just 2.5 seconds.
As for the range, the base model is a little bit better. It offers up to 348 miles on a single charge. The high-performance Model X Plaid is good for about 333 miles, but it is also worth mentioning that range goes down in both models if you opt for the bigger 22-inch wheels. Finally, the charging is still pretty quick and with Tesla’s superchargers, you can add 175 miles of range in just 15 minutes.
2024 Tesla Model X Release Date and Price
The 2024 Tesla Model X will arrive later this year and we don’t expect bigger changes regarding the price. The current model starts at around 100.000 dollars. Key competitors are models like BMW iX, Rivian R1S etc.
