New Tesla Model X Has A 257-Mile (413 km) Range

The Tesla Model X is preparing for its grand official launch and delivery, and if you don’t live too far from Tesla’s factory in Fremont – say about 257 miles away – you can drive the automobile all the way to your home with a full-charge.

That’s because the base Tesla Model X 90D has an autonomy of 257 miles (413 km), according to the official range rating from the Environmental Protection Agency. But don’t worry, the faster, meatier P90D doesn’t shy away from that figure, as its capable of covering 250 miles (402 km) with a full charge, achieving an equivalent combined city/highway cycle of 89 mpg – that’s 2.6 l/100 km/h if the car where to run on fossil fuels.

The values are close to Tesla’s other models, complying with the line-up average. In fact, the results are much more optimistic than the 240 miles (386 km/h) range found on the Model X’s spec sheet, and bear in mind that we’re talking about a potentially heavy, 7-seater machine, capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.8 second and achieving a top speed of 155mph (250km/h) – and that’s without the “Ludicrous Speed Upgrade” that cuts the 0 to 60mph (96km/h) time to 3.2 seconds.

But what do you expect from a vehicle powered by a 259hp front and a 503hp rear electric motors?

The first batch of Tesla Model X will be delivered tonight to the customers who already reserved the practical electric model.
