Why is insurance so expensive for the Tesla Model X?

The Tesla Model X costs more to insure than the average vehicle because it’s considered a luxury car that may require high-end parts to repair. Falling into the luxury car classification makes a vehicle more expensive to fix, and the cost to insure will reflect this.

How safe is the Tesla Model X?

The Tesla Model X has been around since 2016 and is an all-electric crossover SUV. The luxury midsize SUV is known for its long driving range, excellent acceleration and outstanding driving technology.

By the end of 2016, there were over 18,000 sales in the US, making it the third best-selling electric car on the market. There were over 25,000 sales worldwide.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the Tesla Model X with a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating. All crash tests performed on the SUV received the highest possible safety rating.

The Tesla Model X model includes lane departure warning, enhanced autopilot system and automatic emergency braking.

How does the Tesla Model X compare to other car models?

From a price standpoint, the Tesla Model X ranks right in the middle of our list of the 360 priciest car models to insure.

About this car

The Model X Plaid is Tesla’s highest-performing all-electric model, with a 1,020-horsepower trimotor clocking in at 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 149 mph and a range of up to 340 miles. It comes equipped with a 100 kWh battery pack called the P100D and it adds about 500 pounds total weight to the vehicle. And it’s a real powerhouse, with the highest towing capacity of any electric SUV: enough to tow a 150-ton Boeing 787 almost 1,000 feet as demonstrated in Melbourne, Australia on 2018.

Its self-driving mode utilizes cameras and sensors all around the vehicle tat enables it to change lanes independently while the driver stays attentive and keeps their hands on the steering wheel. As of November 2021, the self-drive feature is merely an assistive device Tesla’s still developing and should not be considered totally autonomous.

But it claims to be the safest SUV ever sold, boasting a 5-star crash test rating with a very low rollover probability, thanks to that 500-lb battery pack’s placement underneath the driver and front passenger seats to give it a low center of gravity — a safety feature no other SUV can claim.
