Tesla Model X 2020 Review: A Car Comes From The Future!
Oct 15, 2020
Electric car production will be a fast development trend in the future because of its eco-friendly character. Keep scrolling our review of the 2020 Tesla Model X to see if it can bring green SUVs to the traffic.
Do you know any name of electric cars in the Philippines? Hyundai Ioniq EV, Nissan Leaf, or Mitsubishi i-MiEV are all names that are having a good mark in the market. And of course, we can not neglect Tesla - Electric carmaker is known as "Apple in the car industry" or the "Electric Vehicle Revolution."
Tesla developed Model X from the full-size sedan platform of the Model S. Besides the polarizing autopilot innovation, Tesla Model X also features a futuristic form that makes you feel like this is no usual SUV.
While the vision of Elon Musk - Tesla CEO, is to bring new and innovative technology to the mass market, the 2020 Tesla Model X is still extraordinarily expensive in the Philippines.
2. Tesla Model X 2020: Exterior
The car is well-known in the falcon-wing doors for passenger access that attracts any look on the road. They are also smart, as the car easily opens when you walk towards it as long as you bring the key with you.
At first glance, the appearance of the Model X 2020 makes it hard to tell whether it's an SUV or a hatchback. However, the curved roofline is a pleasant touch that blends smoothly into the windshield.
Tesla does not try to unite with each other by imposing fascia, especially the grille like the other SUVs. The Model X has a small grille on the front, separating it from the conventional SUVs because there is no combustion engine under the hood that requires cooling.
Speaking about the below parts, the Model X 2020 comes with either 20- or 22-inch alloys. Upgrading to Onyx Black wheels will charge you USD 5500 (PHP 277,642). That is an expensive amount to give the SUV a touch of sportiness, but trust us, it's worth it.

3. Tesla Model X 2020: Interior
If you often need for generous room to pack up your belongings for your road trip, the Model X 2020 will not let you down with both front and rear cargo spaces. It has a total of 88 cubic feet of cargo space. This is much more than what most luxury hybrid and electric SUVs do. The seat upholstery made from synthetic leather also provides a luxurious feeling inside the car.
The headroom and legroom are generally comfortable, except for the third row, which is likely best left to small children. Adults should sit in the second row for the ideal experience.
The all-digital instrument cluster shows the car's operating status, which is a visual surprise for any tech enthusiast. The "infotainment" tag may sound innocuous, but don't be fooled by the name! This screen lets you monitor almost everything on your Tesla, including the doors, lights, suspension, and even autopilot. The 17-inch screen stack stands out in the stylish, minimal interior of the Model X 2020.
Instead of making the start button, Tesla allowed the task even more conveniently. Step on the foot brake with the keys on board, setting the car in gear, and here you go.

7. Final thought
