Enter Here: bit.ly/Win-Tesla-Model-X-P100D
The fastest accelerating SUV on Earth! Sponsored By Omaze
The Tesla Model X P100D is the fastest accelerating SUV, the safest SUV, the most aerodynamic SUV, and has the cleanest interior air of any vehicle, all according to Tesla. That’s quite the benchmark, which is part of why I believe it’s currently the best luxury for sale today if you’re putting yourself in the drivers seat. We’ll break down 5 major reasons in the video, ranging from the electric drivetrain batteries and motors, to the interior and exterior focused features of the vehicle.
The Model X P100D has a range of 289 miles, a 155 mph top speed, and a 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds. The Model X is also designed to be incredibly safe, with a 5-star crash ratings, a low center of gravity, and a large front crumple zone. It also features over-the-air software updates improving the vehicle with time. It was a blast to drive, check out the video for the full review!

    **Looks at like/dislike ratio** Uh oh!!! Sharing opinions on the internet is dangerous! 5 major points here to the folks saying I've lost it! (Maybe I have). 1. Lots of people saying this isn’t even a luxury SUV. Huh? You mean you can spend $120k+ on an SUV and you’re still not into “luxury” territory? Price tag doesn’t always indicate luxury (like track oriented supercars), but when it’s a 7-seater SUV, it’s clearly not going for the driving enthusiast crowd, and certainly not the family SUV crowd. It’s a luxury vehicle. 2. People saying “you think it’s the best luxury SUV because it’s the fastest?” No, it being the fastest accelerating SUV wasn’t even one of my five reasons! Quiet, smooth, effortless acceleration was the first reason. All luxury cars aim for this, as an SUV, this does it quite well (and happens to be the quickest). 3. “I’m a tesla fanboy.” I guess that’s why I made a detailed video breaking down all of the many flaws on my Model 3. Unfortunately, had this video been about the Lamborghini Urus, the enthusiast crowd would all agree; there’s a world of hate for EVs; many enthusiasts will never get behind them, simply because they’re different. That’s fine, but don’t assume that the same logic applies to all luxury SUV buyers. 4. Objective versus subjective luxury. Mentioned this in the video. The vast majority of the comments saying this is a bad luxury SUV are basing it on subjective criticism. As mentioned in the video, there are better SUVs on a subjective basis, as that comes down purely to opinion and feelings. *Hardly any in the comments have stated why other SUVs are objectively better. I’d love to see more discussion around this, differing opinions is a good thing!* 5. *Thanks for being kind!* For the most part, most of the disagreeing comments are at least being kind about it. I appreciate discussions where we can have differing opinions without pointlessly insulting each other. Thank you!!

    Also, the matterials used in this car isnt exactly what i would call high end, and it lacks in luxury features like sun shade, fridge, rear infotainment screen, picnic table etc. (maybe it does have some, but i cant seem to find any on teslas website, sry if im wrong) and the styling is just way way way too aggressive for me as a luxury vehicle, which is also one of the reasons why i dont consider the urus as a luxury suv. But, all this doesnt make it a bad suv, which is why i didnt click dislike, keep up the good work jason

    Model X is a good EV crossover, it's just not the best luxury crossover/suv. Most of the reasons the model X isn't the best luxury crossover isn't even about the fact that it's electric, it's about the interior, material selection, image. Yes, feeling is also a huge part of a luxurious vehicle(brand image, time spent on hand-crafting and attention to details)

    Personally I do not see the tesla as a luxury vehicle, but I personally enjoy the feel of a combustion engine. The luxury for me is not the simplicity, but the nature of the driving experience. If we are talking about luxury when you are being driven and have absolutely 0 care for the vehicle, then EV's make 100% sense as they provide the smoothest form of transport. But from the drivers seat, there is just something about a combustion engine that feels so right. Diesels are actually the most luxurious engines to have, low end torque and low revs means more consistent output and less "thrill" factor. I know this video is old, but the new Escalade with air suspension and a 3.0 turbodiesel is going to be one of the smoothest vehicles one could drive. On your note of the s class, the gls is officially the s class of suvs according to mercedes, and they offer them with pretty comparable second rows

    I've been in a Telsa Model X, and was not all that impressed... especially for the price. Part of the reason was the internal room (no room in the back seat), and the back seats were not very good. I'm 6' 3", and wife is 5'4". Low profile tires are nice... but you had your own issues with low profile tires. Storage is a little small as well.

    5:25 *It is possible to argue or endeavour to demonstrate a point, regarding **_Weight & Mass_** to the conclusion that we all would be better off, and have a 'smoother ride' with a 2½ Ton Car. The fact is that it takes an enormous amount of energy, be it Electric or ICE to propel a vehicle to any speed. The only slight saving grace with an EV is effective regenerative braking, which puts some energy back into the battery pack. I just anticipate the road ahead in my Mercedes B200 CDi AMG and rarely need to use the brakes. IE It 'freewheels' very well. And by the way although **_Sport_** Version very smooth suspension on ECO, change to **_Sport Mode_** in which case it's like a Go-Cart and goes beserk, only use it with Caution.* *I am well aware that in the UK ICE powered vehicles are to be 'discontinued' from production in the UK & Europe, and we will all have to go **_Electric,_** but until then most EV users are Guinea Pigs to develop the technology to get us there, but OK at an astronomical Price !*

Now they’re basically the same as the model 3 except they don’t get any updates first and the tech is outdated. Model 3 is the new flagship and a third the price of the x.

    Ok, I've seriously considered buying a model X and didn't, and I'll tell you why. I really wanted the autopilot and all the nifty tech features as I'm a big tech guy and absolutely love what Tesla is doing with the neural net aspect of their self-driving technology. However, I am coming from a Mercedes GL, which has become somewhat of a benchmark for comfortable SUVs, and Tesla, sadly, falls short of the comfort level expected of a luxury SUV. Compared to the GL/GLS, Tesla has poor sound insulation and the road noise gets uncomfortably loud, especially on the highways. The suspension is quite stiff resulting in quite a bumpy ride. Furthermore, the seats are firm, for no particular reason. I feel like more comfortable seats would've helped at least a little with not having to feel every imperfection in the road surface while driving. The fit and finish of the car itself is not quite on par with other luxury cars. I'm not a fan of its styling in general, but that has no bearing on the other points outlined here. To summarize, I really wanted to love the Tesla, but it's just not quite there yet when it comes to comfort and driving experience of other SUVs in its segment. For now, I'll wait for Tesla Model X2.

    I do have a few critiques: First, this is not an SUV. We really need to come up with another name for vehicles that are not cars, and since people hate on minivans, we cannot call them that; although that is probably the best description of this vehicle. Second, as luxury vehicles go, I think this is a kitschy fad. The car is, in my opinion, rather ugly, the materials on the interior are nice, but not luxury, but like you said in the video, the Mercedes S class, ir Rolls are probably better in that aspect. Third, I am still not convinced that any vehicle with the ability to steer itself should be allowed on our public roadways. I just do not feel safe with them on my roads. Al that being said, there is something magical about driving a Tesla. The door handles open for you like the car is saying hello, you get in and go, no buttons to push or keys to turn, just put it in drive and go. And then driving, the look on your face says it all. Instant, unlimited torque, every drivers dream. I love your videos, you are enthusiastic and your passion for the topics is evident. Thank you for the good work.

    Hey John, respect your opinion, but autopilot is amazing and has a huge impact on quality of life. I had my doubts about safety, but after using it, I can say it's very very confidence inspiring. I drove other lane keeping systems, and you never know when they might not be able to handle a bend. Those are worse than driving yourself. I agree a model S/X isn't as nice in terms of material as s class and rolls, but the user experience is worth a lot more imo. You don't have to fish your phone out to use maps because the one on the dash is even better. It's like having a modern smartphone made out of aluminum vs a 20 yr old phone made out of 24k gold. I'd still pick the former if I had to use it. Just my opinion. Have a nice day.

    @Hung Tran Even in fuel-burning cars, the improving technology has allowed them to eliminate at least a few parts that inevitably wear out and fail. They got rid of the distributor which wears out, and replaced it with a computer that decides when to fire the spark. They got rid of carburetors which were notorious for causing engine fires. Having a pool of volatile gasoline sitting atop of the engine and hot exhaust manifold, controlled by an unreliable float valve, what could possibly go wrong? Electric motors also have timing issues, but the technology just takes care of it so much better. It takes a complicated motor controller to run the motor at all of its various range of speeds, but I think such a controller is electronic, very reliable, and fairly efficient. Your self-charging idea makes no sense, and violates even a basic understanding of physics. Anything that increases drag on the electric car is going to shorten its battery range. Electric motors are extremely sensitive to the load upon them, and have to draw more current in order to maintain the desired speed. That is part of what makes the electric motor so incredibly efficient, because it draws but little current when it does not encounter much load. That is why electric cars are built so much more aerodynamic than fuel-burning cars. They have to reduce the wind drag. They have to, in order to get the range numbers to a level that is impressive enough to entice more people to buy their electric cars. Already, electric cars use regenerative braking, that greatly extends the life of the brake pads, since the electric motor can be controlled or wired to produce moderate drag to reduce the speed of the vehicle. Such drag turns the motor into a generator that conveniently recaptures much of the kinetic energy and puts it back into the battery for later use, helping it achieve better range in stop-and-go city traffic than would otherwise be possible. But this feature only works when the driver tells the car to slow down, by either releasing the accelerator pedal or lightly pushing the brake pedal. It is of no use when the car is cruising at constant speed or accelerating. Wind energy is of questionable benefit, has struggled being cost-effective compared to other more reliable options, and only works on stationary land, in which the difference in the wind speed and the stationary land can be exploited. You can't very well install windmills on a car, and if we could, the drag of the windmill would totally defeat the purpose. Now sure, wind can move sailboats, that is, if you think that traveling at up to 20mph is "fast". And controlling the direction of travel and proper set angle of the sails, well is somewhat complicated. You can not head directly into the wind, but "tacking" at 45º into the wind, does work. Those are some of the reasons why sailboats and sail-ships are not so much popular anymore. Ultracaps? You must mean super-capacitors. Super-capacitors seems to be interesting to replace the bulky and heavy battery of fuel-burning cars with a smaller "battery" that weighs a lot less. But aren't super-capacitors more expensive, unless you know of a good source to obtain them from? I saw a YT video some time ago where some guy replaced his expensive car battery with a bank of super-capacitors that seemed to work fairly well. Now they did not have quite the capacity of a normal car battery, but they easily produced the needed cranking amps, and also everybody wanted to know for how long he could play the car radio before the super-capacitors dropped significantly in voltage. If the video can be believed, it was for about 30 minutes, by which time the "battery" voltage dropped to 10.something volts I think. Impressive, but not nearly the performance level of the normal car battery. But if he got the super-capacitors from something else, perhaps for nearly free somehow, then why not? A nice replacement for a costly car battery that performs almost nearly as well. Of course leaving the headlights on would result in a dead "battery" a whole lot quicker. Now as to using super-capacitors for electric cars, depends on probably about 3 major factors, that I don't know if super-capacitors can deliver on. • How does their safety rank to the batteries that they would replace? If they become bent or something in a crash, will they more easily internally short out and burst into flames? Remember we are charging them up to about the full voltage that they are rated to be able to contain, so as to maximize the driving range. Also, what is their longevity? Will they last as long or longer than the car battery that they aim to replace? • How does their energy-to-weight ratio compare to the already-efficient lithium ion batteries or whatever that they are? • How well does their energy-to-cost ratio compare? Perhaps super-capacitors could be stuffed into some hole or void within the car, that otherwise that space would be wasted. In addition to the big flat battery underneath the floor of the car. But if super-capacitors are too expensive, then it is pointless. What good is an electric car that almost nobody can afford? Capacitors also have the very undesirable characteristic that as they discharge, the voltage plummets. At 25% "battery" a capacitor would only have but half the voltage, whereas batteries maintain their voltage pretty well until they are nearly dead. Can the electric car deal with plummeting voltage, or will it then struggle with climbing steep hills towards the end of its journey, as there is no "downshifting" availble as there is no transmission. A big plus of capacitors as an energy storage device, is that they are not sensitive to temperature changes, and capacitors can be recharged very quickly. Since the battery is a very big weakness of the electric car, how well any proposed alternative performs in the energy-versus-cost ratio and energy-to-weight ratio, is going to be extremely important. There is talk of using graphene or some sort of solid-state battery that could quite possibly charge much more quickly and not be sensitive to temperature extremes. That could be very helpful, because then limited battery energy would not have to be wasted maintaining the batteries at the desired performance temperature. Supposedly, those ideas may be right around the corner, but are needing more research. And they will be of little help if they can not get the manufacturing cost down on them.

    Yosef MacGruber absolutely correct timing chain/belt issue, oil leaks, oil burning so many parts that failed while spending time in trying to perfect for many centuries why not spend time in realizing advanced batteries, self charging while driving using air coming in Nikolai Tesla has many turbine can benefit from this generating dc Even Current EV can combining Ultracaps to release instant power and regen and store some short term juice in cold temp environment, this will help batteries last longer.

    Fuel-burning vehicles have all those problems, because burning fuel to power cars, has long been the inferior technology. It has so many problems, that they make the car ridiculously complicated trying to fix all the problems. They had to invent the muffler, because the internal combustion engine can not seem to exhaust its gases without very annoying pressure waves called obnoxious noise. Just look at how big and heavy an internal combustion engine is. And then look at how small the electric motor is to move such a big and heavy car. And the electric motor does it better, faster, without hesitation. I imagine you could probably lift the electric motor even without an engine hoist? What does it weigh? Maybe 30 pounds? I think I might be able to lift that even without a hoist or forklift.

    One drawback: it's not very good at towing. It has great capacity (5000 lbs), but from what I've seen even with a small 25ft caravan you end up with sub 100 miles range, and that was going at 50 mph. Who wants to go camping only 2 hours from home?

    Its very good at towing, unless you want to go longer distances. Then its very good at towing provided u take some rest stops to supercharge, which I'm sure you would take rest stops anyway
