Tesla Australia has tweaked the pricing of its flagship all-electric SUV, the Model X.
Before we get detail the changes, though, it’s worth explaining Tesla Australia has been quoting its Manufacturer Suggested Retail Prices (MSRPs) without Luxury Car Tax (LCT) included (where applicable). Instead, it’s added to the equation as part of their on-road costs.
This is vital to keep in mind because the large Model X and its Model 3 mid-size sedan and Model S large sedan siblings have appeared to have lower MSRPs than they actually do and therefore haven’t been comparable to their rivals in previous CarsGuide reports.
That said, with LCT factored into their MSRPs, the Model X’s entry-level Long Range and flagship Performance variants now cost more.
The Long Range cops the largest price rise, up $14,300 to $165,713 plus on-road costs, while the Performance has jumped $10,400, to $185,213.
No corresponding changes have been made to duo's standard specification.
Either way, the Performance features the coveted Ludicrous drive mode as standard, with it lowering the Model X’s 0-100km/h sprint time to a supercar-like 2.8 seconds. The Long Range is no slouch in a straight line, either, hitting triple digits in 4.6s.
As its name suggests, though, the Long Range is the driving-range champion of the dual-motor Model X line-up, travelling 580km (NEDC) between charges – 27km more than the Performance can muster.
