The Tesla Model X walked so that other models could run. The Model X was one of the first luxury electric SUV models ever produced. It shocked the public with its unique capabilities. The Model X has even been featured in music videos like Batman by Jaden Smith.

The Tesla Model X opened a new window for electric vehicles, and today it has plenty of competitors. The 2022 Tesla Model X starts at $114,990. It produces 670 horsepower. The Model X is also available in a Plaid performance trim that produces a mighty 1,020 horses.

Car and Driver claims that the luxury electric SUV can go from 0-60 miles per hour in about 2.5 seconds. This may sound ludicrous, but the Model X Plaid has enough horses to be as quick as the automaker claims.

The Model X Plaid is easily the quickest SUV in the world if its 0-60 time truly falls below 2.5 seconds, as many drivers and publications claim. Unfortunately for Tesla, having the quickest EV on the market doesn’t mean having the most popular EV on the market.
