2020, a year otherwise marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, has seen some astonishing developments in the field of technology — particularly the automobile industry. Space X and Tesla group’s CEO Elon Musk is either known for his ambitious plans to carry out public level space expeditions or for his self-driving AI-based vehicles. He didn’t let the pandemic overwhelm and instead launched an all-new 2020 Tesla Model X.
The 2020 Tesla Model X is being billed as the greenest—and one of the fastest SUVs in the world. This all-new Masterly crafted Tesla Model X is a crossover cousin to the brand’s iconic Model S sedan, but the X is actually more practical.
Tesla Model X features all-wheel drive, a high-tech cabin with room for up to seven, and striking but fussy Falcon Wing doors.
2020 Model X delivers more than 300 miles/ 482 km of electric range and is equipped with powerful folding falcon-wing doors.

Two models are offered with each one coming with two onboard electric motors; the reason why 2020 Tesla Model X is the quickest SUV.

Engine and Performance
2020 Tesla Model X (both variants) come standard with two electric motors as mentioned earlier. These motors are fixed at both the front and rear axle. Both models (Long Range and Performance) possess the all-wheel-drive capability which is best for your mountainous adventures.
The standard Long Range model is quick and Tesla claims a whopping zero-to-60-mph/ 96 km/h time of 4.4 seconds. The High Performance variant has the ability to hit 60-mph in just 2.7 seconds once its Ludicrous Mode is engaged. The strong acceleration manageable by this vehicle is due to its electric motors — it is considered a huge plus point while weighing SUVs against each other.
