The Tesla Model X 70D base model gets replaced by the updated 75D
Tesla is having a bit of a rough start with the launch of the Model X, from recalls, to reliability and functionality issues and complaints, and even complaints over build quality. Elon Musk himself even admitted that they may have been a bit too ambitious.
Nonetheless, Tesla just released a slightly updated Tesla Model X 75D to replace the previous base 70D model in what could possibly be an “emergency update.” So, what has been addressed?
Well, for starters, the battery increases in size from 70 kWh to 75 kWh, as indicated by the name. This of course boosts range to 237 miles, versus the previous rating of 220 miles.
Dual motors are still standard to offer all-wheel drive, though performance remains unchanged with 0-60 happening in six seconds with a top speed of 130 MPH. It also adds $3,000 to the base price, tallying the final MSRP to be $84,200. This is excluding the $3,000 six-seat layout and $4,000 for the seven-seat arrangement.
