Not only did Tesla finally announce the Model S refresh in its Q4 2020 earnings update, it also updated its website to announce the refresh of the Model X. In addition the Performance Model X is no more, replaced with a new Plaid variant that will begin deliveries in April 2021.
Much like the Model S refresh, the Model X also now features factory black trim and new front and rear bumpers.
Buyers now get the choice of new 20″ Cyberstream wheel as standard, or the newly designed 22″ Turbine wheels that cost an extra $7,200 CAD.
The interior received basically the same refresh as the Model S, with a new horizontal screen, a stalkless steering yoke, ventilated front seats and new rear passenger screen for media, games, and rear climate control.
The changes aren’t all visible. The gaming computer also got a big upgrade, now with 10 teraflops of processing power and wireless controller compatibility.
All these upgrades don’t come for free unfortunately. The Long Range (LR) Model X has increased in price from $112,990 CAD to $124,990. As mentioned, the Performance variant has been discontinued, and replaced with a Plaid Model X priced at $159,990. While expensive, the stats are definitely impressive:
- 0-100km/h: 2.6 seconds
- 1020 horsepower
- carbon-sleeved rotors
- Torque Vectoring
