India’s First Tesla Model X Lands In Mumbai

Added in: News

The first ever Tesla to have landed on the Indian shores is the Model X and it has arrived in Mumbai. The SUV was snapped, showing off its Falcon-wing doors in the financial capital of the country.

The Tesla Model X comes standard with all-wheel drive, and can accommodate up to seven adults. It features standard active safety features, and up to 295 miles of range on a single charge. It’s also the quickest SUV in production, capable of accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds. All Tesla vehicles produced have the hardware needed for full self-driving capability and the ModelX is no different.


All Tesla vehicles with Enhanced Autopilot which feature capabilities including Autosteer up to 90 mph, Auto Lane Change, Summon (beta), Lane Departure Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. It features eight surround cameras which offer a 360-degree vision. As many as twelve ultrasonic sensors provide detection of surrounding objects. Forward-facing radar is aimed to see through heavy rain, fog, dust, and beyond the vehicle ahead, thus helping to prevent accidents.

Other advanced active safety features include Automatic Emergency Braking, Side Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Autopilot driver assistance capabilities and more. The system is constantly upgraded with over-the-air software updates. It even features medical-grade air quality which is delivered through a HEPA filtration system. The system is designed to prevent viruses and bacteria from entering the cabin. There are three modes:

  • Circulate with outside air
  • Re-circulate inside air
  • A bioweapon defense mode

The bioweapon defense mode creates positive pressure inside the cabin to protect occupants.
