Tesla Model X Plaid

We have separated our Tesla Model X Plaid article into sections. If you want to wait to read the full article, click the links below to the different areas. We also have an overview of the full specifications, an image gallery, detailed information about charging performance, and some online reviews. Our sections:


The Tesla Model X Plaid has a maximum power of 760 KW (1033 hp/1019 bhp). The total torque is 1020 nm (753 ft-lb). It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 2.6 seconds. The top speed is 262 km/h.

Battery, range, and charging

The battery has a gross capacity of 100kWh and a net capacity of 96kWh, meaning you have a 4kWh buffer for protection. (4.0%).

The WLTP range varies from 543 to 528 km (338-328 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 17.7kWh/100km for the basic version and 18.2kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The maximum DC charging speed is 250kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 80 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 31 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 7% to 47%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 143kW. Each charge session would take 16 minutes and 9 seconds.

For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 24.0kWh/100km, 1000km will take 9 hours and 21 minutes. This trip will require four charge session(s) charging from 8% to 46%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 61 minutes.

Onboard charger

For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 8 hours and 43 minutes.
