The Tesla Model X hailed as the fastest and safest SUV regarding a frontal and side impact crash. The SUV provides comfortable seating for 7 and sports falcon wing doors that open upwards for easy access to the second and third seating rows; the doors also include an ultrasonic sensor to stop it from hitting objects in the opening process. Tesla unveiled the Model for the first time in February 2012 and launched it in September 2015. Other luxuries include an air filter (HEPA) with medical grade air comparable to that of an operating theater. The vehicle had various teething issues on and off the production line, with the most prominent related to the falcon wing doors and safety issues related to the third-row seats.
The Model X includes a tow bar and has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds (2,300kg).
