Editor's Overview

For 2018, the Tesla Model X continues to be the only fully electric 3-row SUV on the market. Because electric motors are all about torque and lots of it, the Model X can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in a mere 2.9 seconds. However, the Model X is expensive and its interior isn’t as versatile as many gasoline-powered competitors.

It is extremely reliable but sometimes it can take a while to charge but it is also comfortable and looks great it is my favorite car I have drove and I have owned a lot of cars.

Love that there is a central computer that controls the entire vehicle. Every few weeks there is an automatic update that improves this system immediately. I love it!

The doors are the like butterfly wings going up and down. A very highly tech car if I do say so myself.

My Tesla is honestly the best. Amazing quality and easy to drive. It has good gas mileage and it's so smooth and quiet. I would recommend buying it!
