Automotive News did some useful opinion aggregation. We like it so we link it.
On the downside, this is a critical comment: “Rather than bringing Tesla closer to the goal of the Model III, the Model X may be a 2.5-ton warning sign that the company is either unwilling or unable to pull it off. The Model X’s prohibitively expensive technology, including its low-volume aluminum construction, batteries and propulsion system, is virtually identical to that of the Model S. In other words: The Model X may hold seven passengers, but its technology and price hold no evidence that Tesla has realized critical economies of scale in design, materials and manufacturing.
Or, a technical breakthrough that would reduce the enormous cost and mass of its batteries. So Tesla appears no closer to its promise of bringing affordable electric cars to the masses. The Model X, in fact, moves the goalposts in the opposite direction. Musk says he plans to build 500,000 vehicles a year by 2020, but I’m not holding my breath. (And not because of VW diesel NOx.)” (— Lawrence Ulrich, The Drive).
And on the plus side: “The graphical user interface in the gauges, the enormous touchscreen, the ambient lighting and supremely comfortable seats are all nothing short of exceptional. In the short minutes I had to soak it all in, the Model X interior felt every bit as opulent as a Range Rover or Mercedes S-Class. But it’s the displays that really blow everything else away. Supremely crisp graphics, animations, colors, the main gauges and massively adjustable infotainment software are engrossing.” That was Jalopnik’s view.
