Tesla’s luxury midsize Model X turns a lot of heads with its falcon wing doors. Since debuting in the third quarter of 2015, the model has topped 100,000 sales despite a hefty $80-100k price tag. In 2017, it was the world’s seventh-best-selling plug-in electric car. That same year, Forbes named the Model X 100D its Best Vehicle of the Year. It’s hard to argue given that the Model X can travel 328 miles (Long Range) without recharging.
Along with all the awards and attention, though, Tesla’s vehicles also generate plenty of controversy. The Model X, like other Teslas, is outfitted with the self-driving software called Autopilot. Teslas with Autopilot have been involved in several fatal crashes over the past few years, leading some to wonder if they should be on the road at all.
