The 2022 model year Long Range and Plaid variants of the Model return 360 and 340 miles of range on a charge respectively. That's up there with the longest-range electric cars on sale and owners also benefit from access to the company's Supercharger network. You plug the Tesla in using a port hidden in the corner of its rear light arrangement, which is great if you reverse into a charge point, but otherwise it means you’re likely to have cables trailing up the side of the car.

Tesla Model X range

The Tesla Model X has a decent claimed driving range of up 360 miles. The smaller and cheaper Jaguar I-Pace can only manage a maximum of 292 miles, so the Tesla will go further on a charge than most electric cars and will be suitable for anyone wanting to take long journeys in their stride.

Charge time

Find a Tesla Supercharger, which can deliver power at up to 250kW, and you can have an 80% charge into the Model X in around 20 minutes. A 50kW public rapid charger will do the same in around 90 minutes. Meanwhile, a 7kW home or workplace wallbox will take around 15 hours to fully top up the car.
