Tesla Model X 75D Long-Term Review After First 3 Months (Videos)

Tesla Model X

A Tesla Model X owner shares his experience and insights on a Tesla Model X – 75D version, after the first three months of ownership.

The all-electric SUV was pre-ordered about two years in advance of delivery, and apparently was more than worth the wait.

The owner, as a SUV guy, wasn’t interest in the Model S sedan, and was originally expected his new Model X to arrive in late 2016, but changing the (oft delayed) five seat configuration for the slightly more expensive six seat version accelerated his delivery to August.

The CarNichiWa review reveals a satisfied customer, of whom talks about the electric SUV with its endless litany of features that aren’t available in any other vehicle on the planet.

Loving our X90D since May, can’t get enough of road trips and having replaced the last gas car in the garage living the plug in at evening and full in the morning experience. No more stopping for gas, oil change or smog check appointments. Warming up cabin from iPhone especially helpful in the winter to go in comfort without having to scratch ice ever again. Loving it..

Excellent. Can’t wait for Model Y.

Humm, would have thought the charging would have been faster, since he’s not sharing his ‘charger bay’ back in the corral.

I ialso don’t see why people are complaining about the slowness of the low-priced BOLT’s fast charger – 55-56 kw doesn’t seem to me to be that superior to what the Bolt is going to have, and this “X” is an expensive car.

But on the plus side – its good information. I thought modern teslas also showed the voltage and current, but since as he states he could care less about that kind of thing, perhaps a ‘screen option’ blanked that stuff out.

I’m guessing that the relatively low 56kW charging power is due to the battery pack’s rather high charge level which results in the charging power being tapered down. Had he plugged in with a low charge level, I’m guessing that the charging power would have been much higher. I’ve also read that Tesla’s smaller battery packs (his is 75 kWh) charge at lower power than larger battery packs.

Yes indeed, smaller Tesla packs have a maximum charge rate lower than larger packs. It’s pretty basic for BEV tech; every individual cell has a maximum charge rate. Bigger packs have more cells, so can take more total power.

Super Charging is faster like 120kW or faster when battery is empty but tappers down all the time until its full. Temperatures and other matters needs to be controlled.
Charging at home on the other hand is slow but at the same speed all the time.
