Tesla Model X

All-electric SUV cheaper than Model S.

Tesla has revealed the prices for the full Tesla Model X range, which is due to arrive in Australia later this year.

The all-electric SUV is one of the most anticipated cars of 2016, with four different variations available for purchase – 60D, 75D, 90D, and the high-performance P90D.

The cheapest Model X is the 60D, with the recommended retail price already announced at $111,900. This blows out to between $123,958 and $130,087 once the luxury car tax and on-road costs are added depending on which state you live in.

The 75D costs $140,998 and $149,834 to get onto the road, putting it in the realms of a Porsche Cayenne GTS or Range Rover Sport Hybrid in terms of cost.

The more powerful 90D jumps to between $167,204 and $174,754 to own, while the top of the range P90D will cost owners $202,218 and $215,044.

Despite the $200k+ price tag, the Tesla Model X P90D boasts Ferrari beating performance due to its twin electric motors.

The Model X is also cheaper than Tesla’s current Model S sedan, which retails for $208,334 for the P90D version compared to the Model X’s $172,100.

Deliveries for the Model X have not been finalises, but Tesla has confirmed the cars will arrive later this year.

Customers are able to purchase a car ahead of its arrival in Australia.

Competitors to the Model X include the Porsche Cayenne which retails for between $107,900 and $156,400, Mercedes-Benz GLE which costs between $86,900 and $189,900, Range Rover Sport which costs between $90,900 and $191,510, recently released Jaguar F-Pace priced between $74,340 and $103,420, and BMW X5 which will set you back between $86,200 and $185,510.

Despite the cost difference, it should be noted you can charge a Model X at Tesla’s supercharging stations free of charge. This can add up to significant fuel-cost savings over the lifetime of a car.
