The electric-powered Model X is more showy than practical. It features rear “falcon wing” doors that open up and out of the way, giving easy access to the second-row seats.
But these massive, powered doors take their time to open and close. Buyers can opt for a five-, six-, or seven-passenger seating configuration, but unlike in every other SUV, the second row doesn’t fold if buyers opt for the two captain’s chairs, which compromises utility. The X is very quick and handles nimbly in corners. However, the overly stiff ride and pronounced wind noise are not befitting the high price. The standard version is rated at 258 miles on a charge, and the Long Range version can cover an estimated 328 miles.
