New Tesla Model X pricing and specs 2020 detailed: Load-lugging electric SUV now more expensive

Tesla Australia has tweaked its Model X line-up, with the all-electric SUV’s two variants increasing in price.

As such, the Model X’s entry-level cost has risen by $2000, to $133,900 plus on-road costs for the Long Range version.

The biggest price bump, however, is reserved for the Performance variant, which is now priced from $151,900 – $2300 higher than before.

CarsGuide has contacted Tesla Australia to see if standard specification has consequently been lifted for the Model X.

Either way, the Performance features the coveted Ludicrous drive mode as standard, with it lowering the Model X’s 0-100km/h sprint time to a supercar-like 2.9 seconds. The Long Range is also no slouch in a straight line, hitting triple digits in 4.6s.

As its name suggests, though, the Long Range is the driving-range champion of the dual-motor Model X line-up, travelling 580km (NEDC) between charges – 27km more than the Performance can muster.
