For 2019, Tesla has dropped the old 75D, 100D and P100D model designations and renamed them Model X Standard, Model X Long Range and Model X Performance. Range is enhanced this year and the enhanced Autopilot feature gets more features. Tesla continues to make running model year changes included a reported updated dash and interior that may appear late in the build cycle. See the 2019 Tesla Model X models for sale near you
We think most people will be quite happy with the Standard model, that comes with just about everything you'll need in a electric daily driver. The 250-mile range should be more than sufficient for most, however those who worry about running out of juice can pay an extra $10,000 for the Long Range version. The Ludicrous mode offered on the Performance version is a novelty everyone should experience at least once in their life, but it's not worth the $20,000 price increase. Find a Tesla Model X for sale
The 2019 Tesla Model X comes in three trims: Standard, Long Range and Performance. Pricing on the window is firm, but some states are offering tax credits for electric vehicles, so depending on where you live, you may be able to shave a few thousand off the overall cost. As Tesla has now exceeded the government's 200,000 cars sold sales quota, the $7,500 federal tax credit for the Model X no longer applies. The tax credit for the first half of 2019 shrinks to $3,750, and then again to $1,875 in the second half of the year.
The Model X Standard ($83,000) includes full-time all-wheel drive, an adaptive air suspension, Autopilot (enables the car to steer, accelerate and brake for vehicles in its lane), a panoramic glass windshield, a 17-in touch-screen panel with voice control, mobile apps control, 12-way power front seats, heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, heated side mirrors, heated washer nozzles, a wiper blade defroster, self presenting and closing front and rear doors, a rear backup camera, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, LED fog lights, navigation, faux leather seating, a HEPA air filtration system, a 17-speaker sound system, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and power operated rear Falcon Wing doors. Notable standard driver assists include automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning and blind-spot warning. Seating is for five passengers, with the option to upgrade to six- or seven-passenger seating. There's also an advanced $5,000 enhanced Autopilot upgrade that allows the car to navigate itself, auto lane change, auto park and summon itself. Later in the year, the system will recognize and respond to stop signs and traffic lights, as well as drive itself in city traffic. This system also includes a full self-driving computer that can be upgraded as laws and regulations change to allow for fully autonomous driving. Other options include various wheel design, paint colors and interior colors.
The Model X Long Range ($93,000) adds a longer driving range (325 versus 250 miles) and a slightly faster zero to 60 mph time (4.4 seconds versus 4.6 seconds).
The Model X Performance ($104,000) brings a slightly lower range (305 miles) and a 0-to-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds. For an additional $20,000, buyers can opt for Ludicrous mode that makes the Model S even faster, dropping the 0-to-60 mph time to a mere 2.7 seconds.
