Tesla Model X 2019 upgrade

Hey everyone,

In this blogpost I will tell you a little more about the Tesla Model X which recently got an upgrade. As you know and might have seen on my Social Media channels I have driven several Tesla Models, all with so much joy! I have driven the Model X back in Spring this year which was a lot of fun, now I am driving the X once again but with several internal upgrades.

2019 Upgrades of the Model X

Tesla has mildly updated its Model X. Not that you’d be able to tell from looking at it, mind, because all the changes are found beneath the exterior. I will get a little more into the technical details. The headline is a revised drivetrain. Tesla says the primary focus has been improving the efficiency of the permanent magnet synchronous reluctance motor by optimising things such as cooling, lubrication and gear design. For those of you who appreciate these sorts of things, the outcome is an efficiency rating of 93% – which sounds very good indeed. For the rest of us, it means there’s more electrical range of the Tesla. Also the Autopilot is functioning quite well and is improved.I was lucky enough to get the Model X with these amazing black 22 inch rims, which really bring an extra value of the exterior design of the Model X.

Air Suspension

The biggest change is the air suspension of the Model X which got a major upgrade. It now features fully adaptive damping and improved governance software that can better predict how those dampers should react to the road surface, vehicle speed and driver inputs. This means more driving comfort of course. And, this being a Tesla, if a new version of that software comes out, it can be downloaded and installed wirelessly – which is rather clever.

Supercharge

The Model X can now charge at a faster rate too, it should tops its battery up to 50% quicker than before when you plug it one of the latest Supercharge points of Tesla. One thing that I still am impressed about is the Supercharge network, the infrastructure of charging points is really impressive and definitely has a step ahead of other car brands that produce electric vehicles. Then there’s the sat-nav system, which will direct you to a Supercharger if you don’t have enough range to complete your journey. It’ll also tell you how long you’ll need to charge for, how much range you’ll have left when you arrive and whether or not you could complete a return trip without needing to top up the battery. You can read this in my previous blogpost in regards to my road trip with the Model S to the South of France.

Speed

The Model X is impressively quick. I am really surprised that a car of this size is that quick ( Dual motor model ( All Wheel drive) that I drove, 0/100 in 4.4 seconds) The long range is not even the quickest Model X you can get, the Performance will do it in 2,7 seconds which is outrageous.

Entertainment

Tesla recently dropped a new Software Version 10.0 – The biggest software update ever. It comes with new entertainment, gaming, music, and other features. One thing that I really like is that this latest software update made it possible to watch Netflix and YouTube whilst charging or are parked. It makes it more fun to spend time inside the car. These features are of course not possible to use whilst driving. ( SAFETY FIRST) For people that love to sing along there is a new “Car-aoke” feature lets you sing your heart out with friends on a road trip – or by yourself. Caraoke comes with a massive library with plenty of choice of music :). The new “I’m Feeling Lucky” and “I’m Feeling Hungry” navigation features will lead you on an adventure to a local restaurant or point of interest that’s within your car’s range. A very cool and convenient tool that I used twice when I was running a long day and wanted to have a healthy diner on a near spot instead of fastfood.

Conclusion

The Model X is definitely a great car with state of the art technology which gets updated often to improve it’s driving capacities. The interior and exterior design is really sleek and modern. The iconic falcon doors are really a piece of technology work and are easy and practical in use due the many sensors it has.Personaly I am a huge fan of the 17inch touch screen on the Tesla model X and S with its amazing maps system. It is very easy in use and doesn’t need much time to plan a route or make a call. Driving the Model X is an absolute great experience, it’s quick, comfortable and has tools to adopt the driving capacities. A sport mode, comfort mode and so on.

Hey Guys,

Hoping you are all doing well! It has been a while since I have published something on my blog. I have been insanely busy lately, but today I will show you something really awesome!

As most of you know I have a huge passion for automotive and i an really talk about this for hours if nobody stops me lol. I am always very amazed about how fast the car industry has developed lately when it comes to efficiency, design and intelligence. Tesla is one of these game changers who to my opinion opened a new era in the automotive.

The Interior is just jaw dropping.

This is really one of the greatest projects that I have been working on the last months, before the moment pick-up of this amazing Tesla itself. Last week I had the privelige to meet at the Tesla HQ in Asmterdam and see the amazing company and ofcourse to pick up my Tesla Model X, My first impression of the Model X was just jaw dropping, the design, the features and ofcourse the iconic wing doors. (Falkon doors ) Tesla is following the crowd in producing a sporty and luxurious SUV, it has distinctive looks and there’s plenty of innovation underneath, too. This includes Autopilot, electrically operated ‘falcon wing’ rear doors and a range that can top 500KM. While the Tesla can be a near-silent friend of the environment, it can also go from 0 to 100 in such a fast time. Turst me this Tesla is as fast such as a Porsche Cayenne.

Batmobile?


Biggest GPS screen (17 inch) in the automotive market.

TOP CAR  AND SUPERCHARGING

To me this is the ultimite Tesla at the moment, It is fast, has a strong design and it is so easy in use. I believe this car is made to not let you think or be stress, it basically takes over the work behind the wheel. One thing that really suprised me that the switch from driving gasoline to 100% electric is really small. You don’t really notice this after drving this car for a day, you get really used to driving electric. Also Tesla has build so many Supercharge stations where you can quickly charge your Tesla to 100% (500KM) in just 40 minutes. A good thing about this is that it is free for Tesla drivers who are on the go and need to fill up quick. Plus these Supercharge stations are ALWAYS located at Hotels/Restaurants spots to have a snack/coffee or work a little on your laptop while charging your Tesla. Tesla is still expanding the locations of Supercharge stations, and yes is it possible to cruise to the South of France.



Loads of Space

AUTOPILOT

This Tesla comes with Autopilot which is 100% safe. There were stories out there that there were fabric faults etc. This is untrue. I have experiences the Autopilot myself and i could only recommend this to Tesla buyers. It allows you to cruise relax on long distances and when you need to have phonecalls etc. Also the Autopilot system warn you every 30 seconds to touch the steering wheel to still keep active behind the wheel and prevent accidents ( Minimum chance btw) In the worst case the Tesla drives itself automatically to the side of the road or highway. It has many camera’s and sensors to check the positions of the car and other drives. ( The Falcon doors (WING) are also not fully opening when you are in a low and tight parking lot, to avoid damages on the door. Thank god for technology and sensors.

Biggest front window in the automotive.

TESLA APP AND FEATURES

The Tesla app is just amazing, it allows you many things to control from a distance. You can heat all 6 seats in the car, steering wheel headed and the climate of the car in general. Also it can allow you to drive the car back or forward ( Incase you a parked in a very tight spot). The app allows me to check the % of the battery of the car and incase how many minutes left of the supercharging. it sends me text when the car is fully charged etc. I can find spots to charge with this app aswell and it will automatically navigate me to this spot. Will tell more about this on Instagram later with visual content as i could talk about the features for days! LOL

Just one click away on the Tesla app to control many car features.

My Tesla Model X comes with ( To long list to name them all) :

  • 6 seat configuration ( Extra cupholders and console for the passengersin the back)
  • Autopilot
  • Suspension system ( Allows me to lower and higher the car at any time)
  • Media system ( Spotify intergration, WIFI, USB ports, bluetooth, 17 audio speakers)
  • GPS/MAPS realtime
  • Full LED lights system
  • LED ambiant light system interior
  • Automatic doors


CONCLUSION

I am just really blown away about the intelligence, safety and design of this futuristic car. And to be honest I could really recommend everyone driving electric, it drives so comfortable and yet fast. It saves you allot of money in many aspects of taxes etc.
