Cars are rapidly changing as companies develop new technologies. While new technologies are being developed across the automotive industry, few companies revolutionize how they design their cars. Instead, they continued to develop the same ideas while trying to improve their quality. This is good for most car manufacturers. However, they will eventually need to come up with new systems and features to stay relevant in the market. There are several companies within the automotive industry that focus more on innovation that iteration.
Tesla is one of those innovative companies. The Tesla Model X provides more than a car with new technologies. It changes how you interact with your car from driving to maintenance, safety, and managing your finances. Tesla works hard to offer you new features that are hard to find on other vehicles. They also focus on providing you the highest quality vehicle on the market. Tesla has recently released the Model X. It is a new vehicle design that will significantly change how people drive and how companies develop cars. If you’re interested in changing the way that you use your car, here are 25 things that the Tesla Model X can do better than your car.
25. Prevent Rollovers
Anti-rollover technology has been on the market for many years. Many of the most dangerous and fatal car accidents involve vehicles that lose control and roll over. Although this technology is not new, few utilize it in the same way that the Tesla Model X does. It is designed to prevent rollovers in any condition with a wider wheelbase, enhanced aerodynamics, and better traction and steering control. This even extends to wet road conditions. Because of its shape and how it applies force to driving surfaces, the Model X is more resistant to rollovers. It is far more difficult to roll a Model X than previous car designs.
24. Drive Itself
One of the biggest improvements to the driving technology in a Tesla Model X is that it can drive itself. Most people have seen some variation of a self-driving car whether it be in the movies or in various showrooms around the country. Although the technology exists, self-driving cars are struggling to get to consumer markets over fears of software issues, and most companies’ inability to develop an effective self-driving system. Tesla integrated self-driving features into the Model X so that you can relax and enjoy the ride while the Model X does the work. It has been extensively tested and proven to be a safer and more effective method of transportation over most people’s driving skills.
23. Brake Faster
Cars are most often damaged in collisions with other vehicles or various objects. This usually happens because the driver is unable to stop the car in time. Tesla, along with other car manufacturers, implements a series of technologies and features that are designed to mitigate the damage from collisions. Many of these technologies focus on avoiding collisions. However, sometimes, a collision is unavoidable. If a collision is unavoidable, one of the most effective ways to mitigate damage in a collision is to reduce the impact speed. The ability to brake quickly is an asset in dangerous situations. The Tesla Model X brakes faster than other vehicles, which allows you to reduce or avoid potential collisions more easily.
22. Park Itself
The addition of self-driving technologies into the Model X helps resolve another issue that most drivers face. Parking is one of the most difficult maneuvers that people attempt in their cars. Parallel parking is often more difficult than parking in the normal parallel spaces that you find in parking lots. Most people are terrible at parallel parking, but the Tesla Model X makes parallel parking easier. It has an automated system that enables the Model X to scan the area and park the car for you. You won’t have to worry about being able to fit in parking spaces anymore, just have the Model X park for you.
21. Detect Potential Accidents
Safety technology is making major improvements across the auto industry. Many of the new technologies that are being implemented focus on mitigating collision damage or providing braking assistance to stop before the accident happens. While the Model X helps you stop faster, it is often more effective for the model asked to warn you in a greater distance before the accident. This way, you have plenty of time to stop or move out of the way. The Tesla Model X is able to detect potential accidents and help drivers avoid them. A combination of scanning and calculation systems can predict hazards that will result in a crash. Providing advanced warning as well as adjusting the vehicle’s steering and braking performance allows you to avoid accidents.
20. Provide Better Back Seat Access (Falcon Wings)
If you’ve ever wondered if there was a better way to get into the backseat of a car, or what getting into a car like a DeLorean is like, then the Model X can answer those questions for you. The Tesla Model X has Falcon Wing doors like you see on the DeLorean to make it easier to get into the back seat. Instead of having to move seats to enter, the doors fold up so that you can directly access the second and third rows easily. This is a huge advantage if you have to transport people and supplies in the back of your car often.
19. Make Buckling in Your Kids Easier
Traveling with kids can be difficult since you have to buckle them in. Car seats are difficult to install and most cars have limits on when he can put them. Most cars also make it difficult because you have to reach deep into the car to do it. This can be really hard on your back especially if you are an older parent or you have heavy car seats. The Falcon Wing doors make it much easier by raising the head clearance when they are open. Parents can more easily put children into the car, as well as reach in and buckle them in without straining to reach the buckle.
18. Accelerate Faster
The Tesla Model X is more than just a new passenger vehicle. It is a performance machine, too. For the most part, electric vehicles steer clear of the performance vehicle market as they rarely could keep up with gas-powered vehicles. The model X exceeds gas-powered performance and boasts electric-powered efficiency. It accelerates better than many gas-powered vehicles. It reaches 60 miles per hour in just under 3 seconds, performance that is unheard of for a vehicle of its size. The Tesla Model X lets you have the comforts of a passenger vehicle with the performance of a sports vehicle.
17. Search the Internet
A new feature that is coming to the auto industry is internet connectivity. With so many devices that can access the internet and improve our lives, it is a major benefit to having a car that can connect to the internet as well. The Tesla Model X makes using the internet on the road much easier. It can connect to the internet to get software updates and current traffic information to help you avoid heavy traffic. You can access the Model X’s infotainment and navigation systems with the large touch screen in the dashboard. The Model X can also be accessed by a smartphone app that lets you remotely control specific functions like the horn, temperature controls, and door locks.
16. Get Better Mileage
Electric vehicles are now becoming known for providing the economical benefit of not having to stop at the pump with driving ranges comparable to that of a conventional gas-powered car. The Model X can outperform nearly any electric vehicle, but the Model X also gets exceptional driving range. On a full charge, it can get up to 289 miles which is a significant distance improvement compared to many other electric vehicles of its size and caliber. The extended mileage helps you save significantly in fuel costs. You can charge the Model X in a variety of places as well, so you don’t have to worry about running out of juice along the way.
15. Provide More Seating/Cargo Capacity
One of the most desirable features of the Tesla Model X is its increased passenger and cargo capacity. It seats up to seven passengers in three rows. If you’re not looking to transport more people, you can try folding down the seats so you have more cargo space. The second and third rows fold down to increase the Model X’s storage capacity, allowing you to carry more of your stuff when you need to. Having the ability to reconfigure your vehicle for different situations is a major benefit in an active lifestyle. You can have one vehicle to do all of the things in your life.
14. Crumple After an Accident
Sometimes, car accidents are unavoidable. That’s why car manufacturers added better-designed crumple zones around the car so that you will be safer in the event of a serious accident. Car manufacturers have known for decades that a car that is too rigid in an accident is dangerous. Instead, cars should absorb the damage in specific areas to protect the passengers. The Tesla Model X takes it to a new level with effectively designed crumple zones that allow the Model X to absorb stronger impacts. Passengers are safer in an accident because the Model X takes more of the force.
13. Filter Cabin Air
Driving can be enjoyable, but can expose you to a range of toxins and allergens. Cars have to draw in the air in front of your car to cool the engine and keep you breathing. While the air intake has a filter on it, most cars don’t use a strong filter. Other cars produce carbon dioxide and other toxins while nature produces a lot of allergens that fly over roadways. Your car pulls them into the cabin, exposing you to them. The Tesla Model X uses medical-grade HEPA filters to clean the cabin air coming into your Model X. You won’t be exposed to all of these substances which are important to maintaining your health.
12. Help You See More
Most cars, especially sport cars and SUVs, limit your range of view. This can be dangerous, or at least, make it more difficult to drive. Even though the Model X has great performance stats, it makes it much easier for you to see while driving. The Tesla Model X uses one of the biggest available windshields to open up your forward range of vision. The top portion is tinted as well to help protect you from the sun. The panoramic windshield makes driving safer and more enjoyable by letting you see more of the world around you as you drive.
11. Tow More
If you need to tow small trailers to support your hobbies, the Model X is better than other electric vehicles at towing. Most electric vehicles provide better efficiency by sacrificing power. As a result, they cannot tow trailers like gas-powered vehicles. The Tesla Model X corrects this problem and is able to tow up to 5,000 lbs, far more than any other electric vehicle on the market. You don’t have to sacrifice power for fuel efficiency. Instead, the Model X allows you to have both. The one drawback is that your miles per charge will suffer if you’re towing a heavy load, so be sure to time your stops accordingly!
10. Charge Faster
While electric vehicles are beginning to resolve the differences between electric and gas-powered vehicles, there is one consistent advantage that gas vehicles have held onto until now. Gas-powered vehicles can be refueled in a matter of minutes. Most electric vehicles have to charge overnight. The Model X charges significantly faster than other electric vehicles. With a range of different charging systems, it can be fully recharged in under 10 hours. Using the available supercharger feature, it can be fully recharged in under 1.5 hours, up to 80% in 40 minutes and up to 50% in 20 minutes.
9. Cut Travel Costs
Traveling long distances can be expensive with the wrong vehicle. That’s part of the reason why many people choose electric vehicles. Whether it’s short or long-distance driving, electric vehicles are more cost-efficient for driving. Electric vehicles are known for their cheaper fuel costs regardless of variations in fuel prices. Electricity prices are fairly consistent and are usually lower than gas prices. Traveling can be expensive with fuel-inefficient vehicles. The Model X is cheaper to refuel since it is an all-electric vehicle. Over longer distances, these fuel savings continue to add up, making the Model X a cheaper traveling option than other vehicles.
8. Survive a Side Impact
Safety is a major concern in the automotive industry and Tesla works hard to improve the safety of its vehicles. Even though crumple zones are important in front and rear collisions, there isn’t much space on the sides of a vehicle. That is why Tesla works so hard to develop better airbag and impact absorption technologies for side impacts. The Model X is designed to withstand the most dangerous crashes that cars can be involved in: side impacts. There is less material on the sides of vehicles, so the sides offer less protection. The Model X uses airbags and improved designs to make its sides more impact resistant. This includes taking minor hits and still operating perfectly.
7. Stow More with a Front Trunk
It can be difficult trying to fit everything and everyone into a vehicle. There are not many places to put things, especially when you have a car full of people. Aside from folding seats and increased storage areas in the back, the Model X comes with extra storage space in the front. It has a front trunk which is designed to hold your extra supplies. This additional trunk further adds to the Model X’s storage capacity. Rather than putting your stuff on the roof, you can put it in the front trunk. You’ll be able to transport more on a regular basis without the need for trailers or overhead racks.
6. Ensures Better Warranty Protection
Tesla innovates and adds new technologies to its vehicles, but Tesla also finds ways to make sure that your Model X will last a long time. While this is a major benefit for customers, there’s also the risk of that new technology having issues over extended use. That is part of the issue with innovative technologies. Despite the most extensive testing, new technologies can still experience significant issues. That’s why Tesla offers and extended 8-year warranty. If anything goes wrong with your Model X, you can work with Tesla to get it repaired under warranty. This substantially cuts down on your repair costs and adds to the lifespan of your Model X.
5. See Better with LED Headlights
When Tesla iterates on an established idea, its focus is to offer more value than which was previously available. Headlight technologies are changing across the automotive industry, and Tesla takes advantage of these new developments to outperform previous car models. LED headlights are quickly becoming the standard for every type of vehicle. They are brighter, more energy efficient, and longer lasting. With the Model X, these LED headlights will last significantly longer than other models. The Model X is designed to increase the lifespan of your headlights so you can save on maintenance costs and continue to drive safely at night.
4. Safely Transport Four Child Seats
Most cars are not great at transporting a lot of kids at the same time if they need car seats. If you’re starting a family or you’re a few years into starting a big family, you are probably one of those people that need a bigger car that can have more car seats. Car seats are bulky and often need special restraints to be safe for kids to ride in. The Model X addresses these concerns by installing more of the needed restraints. The seats are also designed to be more accommodating to car seats. You can fit up to four car seats into the Model X, making room for larger families.
3. Maintain Better Driving Stability
Since the Model X is designed for performance, among other traits, it includes a feature that is generally never seen on electric vehicles. All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is mainly found in gas-powered performance vehicles since they can deliver more power and adjust the power ratios accordingly for better performance. This allows them to provide the extra power needed to manage all four wheels in drive mode. The Model X introduces AWD to the electric vehicle segment, which is a potential game changer for the industry. By adding AWD, the Model X is able to outperform other electric vehicles in adverse conditions.
2. Come to You When You Call
While many people are still unsure of self-driving car technologies, Tesla is embracing them to provide a better vehicle. Self-driving cars are the way of the future, and the Model X introduces a new self-driving feature that is a game changer. Families with multiple drivers and busy lifestyles will benefit from having a car that can drive to their location when they need it. Instead of having to go to your car, you can have your car come to you. The Model X can come to your location when you signal it, making it easy to find and get in your car in places where you normally lose it.
1. Understand How You Drive
Perhaps the most innovative feature of the Model X is its automated driving systems. Not only is it safer to drive, but it is also able to automate many of the basic driving actions that you perform on a regular basis. The Model X studies your driving habits, and can adjust its performance to help you. If you live in a place where the temperature fluctuates and you need to heat up your car before you drive, the Model X can do this for you. It learns your schedule and tries to help with specific processes to make driving more comfortable.
While you drive, the Model X studies the conditions of the places you drive to. It can make adjustments to the suspension for better performance in different areas. In some cases, it can also drive for you. If you need to send your car somewhere, you can do that automatically so that you don’t have to drive there. It’s an innovative feature that will make it easy to manage any family or business car-sharing activities.
