Is it an SUV? Is it a people carrier version of the Model S? Whatever it is, the Tesla Model X is utterly staggering, with the colossal performance and technology Tesla is synonymous with (albeit with a colossal price tag, too). After all, how many seven-seaters do you know that can do 0-60mp in as little as 2.7 seconds and cover 300+ miles on a single charge without emitting a gram of harmful gas? And that’s not even mentioning the surprisingly practical elephant falcon doors in the room!

The below guide shows data ranges for the current Tesla Model X variants available. Specs will depend on your selected configuration.

Charging Details

Charging time for a Tesla Model X

The table below shows the estimated time to charge your Model X from empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.

Charging method Typically found at Charging time* Range/hour**
Empty to full
3-pin plug Home 44 - 44 h 7 - 7 m/h
3.6kW Home / Work 27 - 27 h 11 - 12 m/h
7kW Home / Work / Public Locations 15 - 15 h 21 - 22 m/h
22kW Work / Public Locations 6 - 6 h 49 - 51 m/h
50kW Public Locations 80 - 80 min 74 - 78 m/30 min
150kW Public Locations 30 - 30 min 223 - 234 m/30 min

* Based on Pod Point estimates, charging time can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and variation in charging rate. Max charging rate may also be limited by the vehicle.
** Range per hour is the number of miles you can expect to get from an hour of charging at the relevant rate.

Connector type and charging rates

You can charge your Tesla Model X with a Type 2 connector at home, work or at a public charging point. There is also a CCS connector for rapid charging.

Vehicle Specs

Official range (WLTP*) 333 - 348 miles
Pod Point Confidence Range** 283 - 296 miles

* For more information on "WLTP", "NEDC" and more, please visit our Electric Vehicle Dictionary.
** Pod Point Confidence Range is the maximum distance we’d be confident driving on electric power between charges. Real range will depend on various factors including driving conditions, personal driving style, outside temperature, heating / air conditioning, etc.

0-62 mph 3.9 - 2.6 seconds
Top speed 155 - 163 mph
Engine power 661 - 1006 bhp / 493 - 750 kW
Torque 335 - 720 Nm
Battery size 100 kWh
Usable battery (Pod Point estimate) 95 kWh
Official battery efficiency (WLTP) 0 Wh/mile
Battery efficiency (Pod Point estimate) 321 - 336 Wh/mile
Environmental impact
Official MPG (WLTP) N/A
Official CO2 emissions (WLTP) 0 gCO2/km
CO2 emissions from UK grid electricity usage (Pod Point calculated)* 38 - 39 gCO2/km

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
