The Falcon doors on the Tesla Model X are surely the signature element of the vehicle, but how do they compare to more conventional minivan sliding doors?
"Here is a demo of how fast the falcon wing doors open compared to minivan doors! The Kia is a little faster. Definitely noticeable! But the falcon wing doors do draw a crowd!"
As seen in the video, the Model X Falcon doors are a bit slower than the minivan slider, but not so much as to be inconvenient.
Tesla reinvented the door, perhaps mainly for appeal, but it remains to be seen how these doors will hold up over time.
