Tesla Model X: The SUV shows an unexpected strength on the road trip

On September 29, 2015, Tesla announced the production of the Model X SUV outside the company’s Fremont, California factory. Just a few hours before the Tesla Almighty Elon Musk announced the good news of gullwing doors and the defense mode against bio-weapons to his believers, I was one of the first to test drive the Model X.

Since then, the Tesla SUV has become the industry standard. As a premium e-SUV, it has only a handful of rivals, including the Audi e-tron and the Jaguar I-Pace. It’s been a few years since I last drove the Tesla Model X. A road trip from New Jersey to Wilmington, Delaware seemed like a good opportunity to try out the performance of a new Model X and to familiarize myself with the Tesla SUV.

In addition, the almost 200-kilometer drive would give me the opportunity to try out Tesla’s much-praised Supercharger network. Even though I spent a lot of time behind the wheel of Tesla’s Model S and Model 3, I mostly only drove to the NewsABC.net editorial office in New York. So I rarely drive so long that I have to charge the battery in between.

For our road trip, Tesla provided us with a Model X Performance in the color Deep Blue Metallic, which normally costs just under 150,000 euros. However, the Tesla Model X Long Range model is available from a little cheaper around 68,000 euros.
