We waited half Doc, Marty and Elon out when the Falcon Wing Tesla Model X doors begin to open, as they are activated with two successive pulses on the key side. The rear doors are released with an audible click, and then hum electric motors when the doors begin their slow ascent to heaven. The trick is great Model X, and dubious ties to the arrogance of the DeLorean, Bricklin and Icarus.
These are not mere port gull wing, however; they are much more complex. Drive power and lined with capacitive sensors, inductive and sonar behind the aluminum skin to prevent the delivery of a hook on the head or on the garage roof, the doors are hinged above the glass automatically fold away parked cars and obstacles. They are probably smart ports already installed in a car. But you want to work out doors? About all you want open doors easily, quickly and provide large enough to enter the cabin portal. Fully opened, the door Falcon offers a grand entrance, but is still easy to hit your head on the edge of the wing.
We tried a P90D X, which means that the battery becomes greater Tesla, a 90 kWh lithium ion battery pack, which provides a claimed range 250 miles. In the short period of time with the Model X-board computer 107 kWh reported that more than 246 miles were used; which is equivalent to 77 power MPGe.
As the Model S, X not be ashamed if he lines up alongside a supercar on a racetrack. An electric motor on each axle provides added traction on the four wheels. Add the potential of 762 horsepower and theoretical output of the motors is obtained, but the arithmetic is not so simple. Power sent to the wheels is limited by the battery’s capacity to pass the current so that the current output is combined 463 horsepower for P90D.
The mark of 60 miles per hour in 3.3 seconds arrives, and the quarter mile in 11.8 seconds at 116 mph flashes by. Stab pedal of a roll at 30 mph results at 50 mph in 1.3 seconds. It is almost instantaneous. The tour of 50 to-70 takes only 2.1 seconds. Even without launch control, the model X rips through 5-60 test in 3.5 seconds. Fast by any measure, but let us pause to consider that the 5594 lbs X model is less than 76 pounds of a Chevrolet Tahoe. We tested the Tesla on the same day we found the 570S McLaren and Porsche 911 GT3 RS on track. Only Model X acceleration caused an involuntary groan.
After back-to-back from zero to 120 kilometers per hour races, Tesla battery heats up and is stingy with electrons. strong fans kicked and acceleration decreases. To extract the best of times, we wait for a period of slow cooling. Most owners never performed repeatedly to 60 miles per hour or more, then you can expect fully 3.3 second trip in rocket when unsuspecting neighbors take a cruise.
stunning companion to trick rear doors is the expansive windshield that extends to the ceiling. The dark color starts where the windshield ends normally and works to keep the cabin warm as a greenhouse. visors pull out the A-pillars and swing into position. We are skeptical of the value of the windshield to the left among the skyscrapers in downtown Los Angeles. Suddenly, the tops of buildings came into view. We were left speechless as tourists with endless open mouth looking up. Falcon Wing doors loses, Elon; the windshield is the best trick of the Model X.
Tesla, the company does not stop. Following behind the Model X is the most affordable model 3. But until the Model 3 reaches the end of next year, the company continues to be an expensive shop selling electric vehicles for wealthy buyers. The cheapest model starts at US $ 81,200 X. Our speed test car top-spec P90D Ludicrous came with a price of US $ 133,700. And yet, the X model really has no competition. No other electric SUV at the time. And even against SUVs powered by fossil fuels, effortless performance and Tesla efficiency can not be matched. We should also note that no other SUV with gullwing door, but now we know that there is a good reason for it.
