Just like it did with the Model S, Tesla has also updated the Model X in very similar ways. Firstly, the Model X gets the all-new interior, complete with the Batmobile-esque steering wheel and even more performance courtesy of the hot Plaid version which is available from £110,980 without any incentives factored in.
The Model X Plaid is predictably not quite as quick as the Model S Plaid, but given its extra weight, the fact that it can still sprint to sixty in 2.5 seconds is an achievement; top speed rises to 163 mph (262 km/h). That acceleration figure comes courtesy of the same three high-performance motor layout that produces a combined 1,020 bhp.

When it comes to range, the Plaid doesn’t quite match the Long Range model, with a 340-mile estimate (the LR model has a claimed range of 360 miles). Tesla also operated slight changes to the exterior: you’ll spot the lightly revised front fascia or the chrome delete.
Step inside the revised Model X and you will immediately spot the changes. The cabin is dominated by a new 17-inch landscape-style screen and the new helm; you can’t really call it a wheel any more because, well, it is far from circular in shape. The design of the dash is also different, now more in line with the look of the Model 3 and Model Y.
Tesla says deliveries of the revised Model X (Plaid or otherwise) will begin in April. It is worth noting that Tesla chose not to offer a Plaid+ variant for the Model X; that is exclusively available on the Model S as the highest possible performance model currently in the range.
