Charging Tesla Model X

Everything Tesla Model X drivers need to know about charging an electric vehicle

The Model X, introduced in 2015, is Tesla’s largest vehicle. A full-size SUV, the Model X shares its underpinnings with Tesla’s Model S sedan. But the X is a few inches longer and wider, and about 10 inches taller—providing a lot more space and comfort. The SUV comes standard as a five-seater but can be expanded for either six or seven passengers. The electric SUV’s cargo volume is 88 cubic feet, which is quite generous among luxury midsize SUVs.

In 2020, the Tesla Model X is offered with two powertrain configurations. The Long-Range Plus version starts at about $85,000, providing an estimated 351 miles of range, with acceleration from zero-to-60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. Tesla drivers can add around $20,000 to the price to upgrade to the Performance edition, which cuts the time to 60 mph to a blistering 2.6 seconds, but reduces the driving range to 305 miles on a single charge.

The Model X’s most prominent design feature is its falcon doors—making for dramatic scenes as the doors rise up and over the car while passengers get in and out. The cabin is high-tech but not ultra-luxe. With the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds and robust Autopilot features, the Tesla Model X is arguably the most capable EV on the road today.

Tesla Model X Charging & Range

The Tesla Model X combines long range and fast charging. The 2020 Long Range Plus version of the Model X provides an impressive 351 miles of range on a single charge. That accommodates long commutes and opens up new possibilities for highway driving.

The Performance version, with an estimated 305 miles, beats the range of nearly every other EV on the market—while adding a compelling combination of space and power.

Tesla no longer uses numbers like 100D or 75D in the Model X’s trim name to designate the size of the car’s battery pack. Those models from 2019 were rated by the EPA at 238 and 295 miles, respectively. Ultimately, the size of the pack in kilowatt-hours is less important than the miles it delivers. The range on the 2019 models was good, but the two 2020 Model X variants push to a new level of driving distance, all the way to 351 miles.

Keep in mind that Tesla is continually changing the model names and specs of vehicles via over-the-air updates.

Level 3 DC fast charging: Tesla Supercharger

The Tesla Supercharger network encompasses all of North America, with nearly 2,000 charging station locations. A highway pit stop with the Model X will add as much as 170 miles of range in just 30 minutes.

Charging speeds get about 25 percent faster with the V3 Supercharger, which started rolling out in 2019. The V3 Supercharger units continue to get deployed across the network. On most road trips, the Model X will be fully charged before you finish stretching your legs or grabbing a bite to eat.

Tesla Model X Customer JuiceBox Reviews

  • 5 out of 5 stars

    All I had to do was attach the mounting plate to the system, install the mounting attachment to the wall and plug it in! It came right up on my iPhone so that I could monitor and manage the system remotely. It charges at a 35 mph rate!

    I will buy another one for another location for sure!

  • 5 out of 5 stars: Easy to use, saves money, makes the world greener
    The JuiceBox with JuiceNet is light, easy to install, and makes my life way easier. It allows me to schedule charging at different hours for weekdays and weekends, following PG&E’s price curve to me. And it chooses the best times for PG&E to deliver power, compensating me with a rebate. Amazing product.
