Tesla is making a lot of claims about their Model X SUV stating it is “the safest, fastest and most capable sports utility vehicle in history.” A strong statement to backup but over the week I had the car, it proved itself to me.

Whether it is the best in every category as the company claims is to be determined. I can’t possibly answer this as I have not driven every similar SUV made.

The superb Falcon Wing doors of the Tesla Model X

The superb Falcon Wing doors open upwards to allow easy access to the second and third-row seats from even the tightest parking space. Only a foot of clearance on either side is required to allow the doors to articulate smoothly up and out of the way.

Passengers can enter from both front and rear directions. The side and overhead opening are so large that parents can buckle children in without ducking or straining and without bumping their child’s head on the roof.

The vehicle has automatic keyless entry and automatic rear tailgate from the key fob which is shaped like the car. A nice touch. The tailgate closes with the touch of a button on the lower seal.

The canopy windscreen is the largest single piece of glass installed in a  car, in the world. Offering superb views for all occupants, and gives the feel of sitting in a cinema. Lots of natural light enters the whole car.

Active safety technologies, including collision avoidance and automatic emergency braking, have begun rolling out through over-the-air updates.
