Tesla Model X SUV

Welcoming the all electric Tesla SUV model to the UK

buy car wigan

SUV’s are extremely popular in the current market right now, with the practicality of a larger powerful vehicle and sleeker body styling, the Tesla Model X enters right in the mix by offering an electrical alternative

With a total range of 303 miles, there’s not much separating this and a gas-guzzling SUV for cruising capability. Although even with Tesla’s quick-charging Supercharger system, it’s still faster to fill up a conventionally-fuelled car to continue your trip

Practically, how does this electric variety square up with its owners? Well, charging your Model X at home is a given before you buy the vehicle, but with the vehicle fully charged then a moderate to lengthy commute is definitely within its range and it does boast savings compared to the petrol and diesel rivals as well

So how does Tesla fare against other SUV’s in the market? Operating at 0-60 MPH within just 4.8 seconds, pretty well. Not many other SUV’s can achieve this as they are so weighted and large

The sleek Model S was the basis of the Model X’s design, but the SUV is the ugly brother. The flat front with a tiny grille and high-sided profile give it a bit of an awkward look. It’s not as handsome as a Volvo XC90, for example

Inside, the Model X can’t quite compete with an XC90, but the seats look and feel good, and the huge central touchscreen is unlike any system in any other car. However touchscreens are inherently difficult to use on the move, so we’d have liked to see at least a few buttons that you can use while travelling at speed.

The ‘Falcon Wing’ doors are a nice gimmick and a suitable party piece, but in practice they are more annoying than fun. The annoying beep that plays is one thing, but they’re slow to open and close, and seem to get upset easily by people standing nearby, tripping the sensors that stop them opening into a wall or roof. A set of normal doors would just be better – as boring as it sounds – although the access to the back seats is admittedly very good with them open.

The front and rear seats have lots of adjustment, and you you can option the car with four, five, six or even seven seats. In the second row there’s lots of leg and headroom, but behind these there’s really not much space at all. Adults will find themselves hunched over and pressed in, though they’re spacious enough for kids.
A total of 2,180 litres of space means there’s lots of luggage space, and thanks to the lack of engine there’s a 187-litre boot in the nose too. At the rear, the boot floor can be raised up to reduce the loading lip, and a panel can be removed to open up a deep section behind the rear seats for storing things such as the car’s bulky charging cables

I would just like to pass on my sincere thanks to everyone at Westwood for the fantastic service I’ve received today. I’ve been a customer for over 10 years, purchasing various vans along the way.
Today, I received my new car on a fantastic scheme they run. Steph and Laura have been brilliant, keeping me informed of everything along the way and Chris (the boss) continues to offer a fantastic service!!
I hire all my vans through Westwood as and when I require them and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!
If you want to feel special and feel like a customer, not a number, let the people of Westwood take care of you!!
Many thanks for a wonderful experience!!!
