Just ahead of the Tesla Model X’s official launch, the Environmental Protection Agency in the United States has revealed the electric SUV has a 413 km (257 mile) range.
That figure is for the entry-level Model X 90D while the range-topping Model X P90D complete with its 762 hp, has a range of 402 km (250 miles). Such a figure is the equivalent of 89 mpg on the combined city and highway cycle, or 2.6 litres per 100 km if the Model X was fuelled by petrol or diesel.
Of course those figures are especially impressive when you consider the fact that the Tesla Model X P90D is capable of hitting 96 km/h in just 3.2 seconds with the optional ‘Ludicrous Speed Upgrade’ as well as a 250 km/h top speed. Those figures are achieved thanks to a 259 hp electric motor powering the front wheels as well as a 503 hp electric motor driving the rear. The Model X P90D is also capable of completing the quarter mile in 11.7 seconds.
Expect more official details about the Model X as it debuts shortly.
