This new upgrade has brought a series of changes to the vehicle, so along with the 5 kWh bump of the battery capacity, and the Model X keeps all-wheel drive as standard. Additionally, the SUV’s entry version has a top speed of 130 MPH (209 km/h), and can dash from 0 to 60 MPH in 6.0 seconds (0-96 km/h).

The estimated range of the Tesla Model X 75D is 237 miles (381 km), just 20 lower than the Model X 90D. Compared to the version it replaces, the EPA-estimated maximum range has increased by 17 miles (27 km).

Acceleration has not been affected by the update. However, the Model X 90D is significantly faster than the 75D when accelerating from 0 to 60 MPH and reaches a top speed of 155 MPH (250 km/h), and it also features Smart Air Suspension, but costs $10,000 more.

Meanwhile, the price of the Model X has been increased by $3,000, and the top speed was decreased from 140 MPH (225 km/h) to 130 MPH (209 km/h), as mentioned above.

According to Tesla’s website, the first deliveries of the 75D will take place in June.

Along with this upgrade, Tesla has also updated their webpage with the Model X Design Studio, a custom configurator where users can see how they can change the Model X before ordering.

The same online tool lets you see just how much one could spend on a Tesla Model X. The P90D starts at $115,500 (cash price, no incentives included), and that is without the “Ludicrous Speed Update,” which would be a shame not to have and costs an extra $10,000.

You should also get the optional Autopilot Convenience Features, which cost $2,500 when ordering or $3,500 after delivery. Ticking all the boxes would raise the price of a Model X P90D to $151,750 without destination&doc fee, which is an extra $1,200.

Tesla unveiled the update in the Model X range just a day after the company had announced a recall for 2,700 Model X units. They wanted to fix a defect in the latch of the rear row of seats, which had the potential risk of folding forward in the case of an accident.
