Tesla starts delivering refreshed Model X to customers

Elon Musk-led American electric vehicle (EV) giant Tesla Motors has reportedly started delivering refreshed Model X mid-size all-electric luxury crossover to customers. According to emerging reports, Tesla handed over the first five refreshed Model X electric cars to customers at its Fremont factory in California on 16th of this month.

While the Palo Alto, California-based EV giant hasn’t confirmed it, Tesla Motors Club’s user sunnyvaletree recently posted an image with a delivery appointment date. Later, the same user posted an image of a few refreshed Model X electric cars ready to be delivered to customers.

Previously, at the end of September this year, several units of the refreshed Tesla Model X were spotted in the delivery area of the EV giant’s Fremont factory.

In the meantime, the electric car pioneer has posted a new tutorial video about the refreshed Model X, with the title, “Meet Your Model X - Watch to prepare for your first drive in your Model X.” The video essentially covers basic stuff, most of which is common with the refreshed Model S, which was launched on 10th of June this year.

The new Tesla Model X electric car has been launched in two models: the 2021 Tesla Model X Long Range (AWD) 20-inch and the 2021 Tesla Model X Plaid 20-inch. The Long Range all-wheel drive model is available with a price tag of $99,990 (plus destination charge of $1,200). As it is not eligible for the federal government’s tax credit, the effective price jumps to $101,190. The Plaid 20-inch model comes with a price tag of $119,990 (plus destination charge of $1,200). Thus, its effective price jumps to $121,190.

When it comes to technical specs, the 2021 Tesla Model X Long Range (AWD) 20-inch model boasts to have 100kWh battery pack, which stores enough power to deliver a range of 360 miles (579 km) per full charge. Its 0-60 mph acceleration has been reported at 3.8 seconds, while its top speed is 155 mph (249 km/h).

The 2021 Tesla Model X Plaid 20-inch model comes equipped with the same 100kWh battery pack, but it has got a slightly lower EPA range of 340 miles (547 km) per full charge. However, its top speed of 163 mph (262 km/h) outshines that of the Long Range model.

Tesla, the electric car pioneer, continues to maintain its dominance. As per fresh data, it sold a total of 294,218 units in the January-August period of 2021, with the month of August alone accounting for nearly 39,000 units.
