At the same time, Tesla has made an official announcement to expand their sedan and SUV variants. It brings the much needed refreshment to the existing models. The Model S gets a powerful and a super-fast variant while the next in the list is getting a cheaper alternative with a bigger battery. Sports utility vehicles are always about mileage as people use it to travel long distances with their family. The 75D is their solution to make one with better space, features and most importantly better fuel efficiency.

The Model X 75D SUV is powered by a 75 kwh lithium ion battery which is confirmed to have an increased efficiency pegged at 237 miles on a full charge. It is 17 miles more than the existing 70D model. While the numbers aren’t significant, it will bring about a change in the way people travel and give them more for what they pay. The bigger battery is not just the only upgrade that is being brought to the model.

The base model of the car uses an all-wheel drive system, has automatic emergency braking and plenty of safety features. Tesla has always been keen on safety features so as to make their vehicles appealing to the mainstream audience. The SUV model is provided with a six seat or a seven seater variant based on the buyer’s choice.
