LET’S not pre­tend the Model X is about to con­vert us all to driv­ing fully elec­tric SUVS. It’s sim­ply too ex­pen­sive for that to be the case. How­ever, as a showcase for Tesla’s tech, this SUV – with its fancy Fal­con Wing rear doors, amaz­ing pace and min­i­mal­ist cabin – has lots of ap­peal, par­tic­u­larly for early adopters.

Con­ven­tional SUVS are more prac­ti­cal, but as the charg­ing net­work grows, so too does the draw of the Model X. Price range: £75,435-£137,885 Our pick: 75D (£75,435) En­gine: Front and rear elec­tric mo­tors, 324bhp Trans­mis­sion: Sin­gle­speed au­to­matic, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 140mph Range: 259 miles CO2: 0g/km
