If it is like the battery in other Tesla models, one charge should last approximately 200 miles before it needs to be charged again.

85 kWh

Going Electric

Electric cars are becoming more popular every year because they provide an environmentally friendly alternative. One of the main things people look at when they are looking for an electric car to purchase is how long the battery will last before they will have to charge it again. The Model X crossover is impressive even with the smallest battery in the line-up.

It’s important to understand that electric engines are entirely different than gas engine with no gears to shift or oil to change. There’s no filling up at the pump, just electric charging, and over time the battery will wear out. If you are in the market for an electric vehicle, evaluate your needs to determine the battery option that is right for in the innovative and impressive Tesla Model X.
