With the first deliveries of the 2017 Tesla Model X due to start at the end of 2016, we decided to head to Tesla and have a quick look at the first car to land in Australia.

Pricing starts from $111,900 (plus on-road costs) for the entry-level Model X 60D, which promises over 350 kilometres of driving range on one charge.

Step further into the line-up, and range grows all the way out to 542 kilometres for the top-shelf P100D model.

All-wheel-drive is standard across the range and, although few will attempt it, buyers can also look forward to a top speed of 210km/h. Tesla claims a 0-100km/h time of just 6.2 seconds for the P60D.

The top-specification Tesla Model X P100D will feature an uprated version of Ludicrous Mode that allows the car to accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.1 seconds.

The following options will be available for buyers to tick when they make their purchase:

  • Seven seats (this includes the extra two seats, along with additional heating and cooling)
  • Six seats (this includes the extra two seats, but removes the middle seat in the second row to allow for easier entry and egress)
  • Autopilot convenience features (this includes Autopilot, summon, semi-automatic parking and radar cruise control)
  • Premium interior package (includes HEPA air filtration unit, ventilated front seats, Alcantara headliner, soft LED interior lighting, dynamic LED headlights and fog lights)
  • Smart air suspension (includes geocaching of suspension raise locations)
  • Sub zero weather package (includes heated windscreen wipers, heated seats and heated steering wheel)
  • Ultra high-fidelity sound system (includes 17 speaker sound system)
  • Towing package (with 2300kg towing capacity)
  • High amperage charging upgrade (increases charging capacity from 48A to 72A)
