Tesla Model X Officially Lands On European Soil

Since gas prices can’t be as low as they are in the US all over the world, Tesla’s Model X might attract a great deal of European customers.

Naturally, Tesla chose to have the Model X P90D on display in Geneva, since it pretty much represents the pinnacle of performance and efficiency when it comes to these types of vehicles.

However, European buyers might want to look hard at the 90D and especially the 70D version, seen as how it could be viewed as a more sensible choice.

Those who’ll want to invest in buying the flagship P90D version (probably just for the fun of it), will still walk away with an autonomy worth 250 miles (402 km) – on a full charge.

The entry-level 70D has an estimated range of 220 miles (354 km), to go with a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) sprint time of 6.0 seconds flat and a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h) – which is more or less the top speed of your run of the mill diesel-powered German SUV, like a VW Touareg V6 TDI.

Once the proper EV infrastructure is in place, driving all-electric cars actually makes even more sense if you live in Europe, seen as how you rarely need to cover the same vast distances you would in the US, where driving from Los Angeles to Denver is almost the same as driving from England to Hungary.
