The all-new 2022 Tesla Model X will introduce further updates. This popular model will gain an all-new interior with the airplane “yoke” steering wheel. Of course, the interior will host further upgrades, but we’ll get to that. The pricing list is also available and this should be the most exciting Model X so far.
The exterior will also host various refreshments and a new version will look even better and more attractive. It is a practical model with a lot of premium stuff. There will be room for five or six occupants and the performances are astonishing. The sales will probably begin by the end of 2021, but this is not official yet.
2022 Model X Visual Changes
The exterior changes are far from subtle than those on the inside. The 2022 Tesla Model X will host minor cosmetic upgrades. The front fascia is slightly different and the black exterior trims will replace current chrome materials. New wheels are available. Tesla calls them “19-inch Tempest” and “21-inch Arachnid” wheels. The 20-inch units are called “Cyberstream” and 22-inch rims “Turbine.”
Generally, styling remains, and it is the same styling that you can see on the Model S. Model X is a crossover and it looks more attractive in our opinion. The credit goes to a sloping roofline that remains intact. However, Tesla could deliver a slightly higher ride height, which will result in an even more athletic stance.
Model X Gets New Steering Wheel and Larger Touchscreen
The interior will host more updates than the exterior. New 2022 Tesla Model X will suffer a couple of important upgrades. For a start, there is a new, slimmer, and rectangular steering wheel. It is the “yoke” steering wheel used by aircraft pilots. According to Tesla, the focus is on driving, with no shifting and no stalks. The center of the dash will now gain a larger 17-inch infotainment touchscreen.
It comes with video streaming, internet functionalities, and satellite navigation. Because this new display is horizontally placed, the digital instrument cluster will now host a new 12.3 inches screen. Tesla offers standard heated seats, a 22-speaker premium audio system, tri-zone climate control, and ambient lighting.
New Plaid Variant Replaces the Performance Model
Another significant change will happen under the skin. New 2022 Tesla Model X will drop the Performance version and introduce the new Plaid variant. On top of that, Tesla plans to introduce a more powerful battery. New Plaid model will reportedly develop 1020 horsepower and it will offer a standard four-wheel-drive setup.
The Tesla Model X Plaid will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds. The top speed is rated at 162 mph. New battery pack will now deliver around 340 miles of range on a single charge. Still, the Long Range version offers up to 360 miles of driving range.
2022 Tesla Model X Launch Date, Price
The price will once again start at about $90,000. The upcoming 2022 Tesla Model X will arrive later this year, but we will wait for the manufacturer to reveal the official launch date. Moreover, new Plaid model will cost up to $120,000.
