After the Lotus Elise-based Roadster and the Model S sedan, the hottest car manufactured by Tesla Motors these days is the Model X. The Model 3 doesn't count yet because production is still far, far away.
Even though first U.S. deliveries of the Model X started in September 2015, the all-electric crossover SUV went on sale in the UK only recently. To boot, first UK deliveries are slated for the latermost half of 2016.

Ignoring the government electric vehicle grant (£4,500) and the £380 delivery fee, the 2016 Tesla Model X in 75D flavor kicks off at £71,900 in the United Kingdom. By comparison, the 2016 Tesla Model S 60 kWh is priced at £51,700. If you go for finance deals, the best you can do is a 36-month term with 10,000 miles per year and a down payment of £18,000.

According to the configurator for the Model X, standard equipment includes: free charging through the Tesla Supercharger network, DAB+ radio, keyless entry, a pair of Falcon Wing rear doors, regular software updates over the air, included 3G Internet connection, maps, as well as satellite navigation with real-time traffic info. Regardless of battery or options, every Tesla Model X in the United Kingdom is covered by an 8-year/unlimited-mile warranty for the battery and driver unit. That's pretty good if you ask me.

Two other variations of the Tesla Model X are available in the United Kingdom, these being the 90D (£82,400) and the P90D (£99,800). And now for the most intriguing part: the options list. The most expensive thing is, as expected, Ludicrous mode. Tick that box and the price jumps by £8,700. If you want metallic paint, that’ll be £850. 22-inch wheels? £3,900, thank you! Two more seats? £3,400.

It goes without saying that things can get out of control if you tick too many boxes from the options list. Here’s a bit of consumer advice: whatever you need in your Tesla Model X, don’t forget the High Amperage Charger Upgrade. It costs a mind-boggling £1,300, but what you get in return makes it worth it.
