The 2023 Tesla Model X is going to receive some refreshments for the next year. This SUV is currently one of the roomiest and most far-ranging electric vehicles on the market. Thanks to its electric motors and large battery, the Tesla Model X was able so far to provide more than 300 miles of range per charge. According to Tesla, the new model with some mapping could cover 351 miles with the five-seat layout model.
On top of that, the Tesla Model X features a very roomy interior, and we don’t expect any sizable changes for the 2023 model. As the outgoing variant, the new one hosts a huge touchscreen infotainment system that dominates the dashboard, and plenty of various features.
2023 Tesla Model X Exterior
From the first photos that are available, the 2023 Tesla Model X will keep the same design lines. The size of this model remains the same and is similar to other midsize 3-row luxury SUVs like the Lincoln Aviator, Acura MDX, and Audi Q7. It has a sleek and stylish look and some design cues are borrowed from the Model S sedan. However, the Model X comes with a cleaner line, a more handsome light signature, and stylish wheel designs.
The highlight of the Model X is its rear “Falcon Wing” doors, which can be opened vertically. Thanks to that, you don’t need to worry about the doors hitting the car next to you in a parking spot.
What’s New Inside
As interior quality was a source of complaint, the manufacturer added better materials this time. So, the 2023 Tesla Model X looks way better than before, but the optional third-row seating is still usable only for kids. Despite size, the Model X is a comfortable SUV that has an absolutely huge touchscreen infotainment system that dominates the dashboard.
In general, compared to the previous model, the new one comes with various features and settings. Tesla’s infotainment system is certainly a highlight inside, and you can count finally on the Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capability.
2023 Tesla Model X Motor Specs
The new 2023 Tesla Model X is available in two configurations. The base model uses two electric motors, one at the front axle and one at the rear, resulting in all-wheel-drive capability. This setup has plenty of power and Tesla claims it can run from zero-to-60-mph in 3.8 seconds.
The three-motor Plaid high-performance variant is optional, and it produces 1020-hp. Unlike the first one, with this setup, the Tesla Model X can run from zero-to-60-mph in 2.1 seconds. As you may notice, even the base model outperforms key rivals such as the Jaguar I-Pace and Audi e-Tron SUVs.
Is Tesla Coming Out with a New Model X?
As we mentioned, the forthcoming Tesla Model X is an all-electric SUV that will be available in two trims. The long-range model starts at $116k, while the Plaid S around $140k.
It is worth mentioning that the price has been increased over the outgoing model due to a modernized cabin that provides comfort for the whole family. As for a debut, we expect it to begin later in 2022 or at the beginning of 2023.
