The Model S Plaid has already caused a lot of ink to flow. It is now the turn of the Tesla Model X Plaid to show its capabilities.

The Tesla Model S is not the only one to come in a terrible Plaid version. The American brand has decided to apply the same mechanical treatment to its large SUV, which then offers the same level of power. But the performance of the Tesla Model X Plaid would ultimately be more interesting than anticipated.

While the first copies arrive on American roads (we will still have to wait to see the Plaids arrive in Europe), some owners are starting to exploit the 1,034 hp produced by the three engines of the Model X Plaid. And it seems that he has an iron health.

The Tesla Model X Plaid is the fastest SUV

Passed under the spotlight of the YouTube channel Vehicle Virgin, the Tesla Model X Plaid had the opportunity to rub shoulders with the clock. And according to the Racelogic box used, it would have bent the 0-60 mph (0.96 km/h) in 2.3 s. This is 0.2 s better than what the manufacturer promises, with a value of 2.5 s, or a 0-100 km/h in 2.6 s.

With its incredible cavalry, the Model X Plaid is by far the fastest SUV in the world. The Lamborghini Urus (0-100 km/h in 3.5 s) or the Porsche Cayenne GT (0-100 km/h in 3.3 s) cannot compete, while being much more expensive.
