Tesla Model X Plaid Seen For The First Time

Let’s check the first two videos of the brand new, refreshed, red Model X.

Here we have two first very short videos with the refreshed Model X – probably the Plaid version.

The car has a yoke steering wheel, new displays (instrument cluster, vertical infotainment screen and the all-new rear screen), 20” Cyberstream Wheels, and plenty of other minor changes.

We must admit that the new red Model X, with the black elements (previously silver/chrome) looks very good. It probably will look even better with the 22” Turbine Wheels, but they affect range a little bit (and comfort as it usually is with bigger wheels).

Anyway, since the Tesla Model S Plaid deliveries are just around the corner, we are eager to see some more videos also about the upcoming Model X, which is expected to follow a few months after the Model S.
