MORE ABOUT CHARGING
There are multiple ways to charge an EV:

Slow (Home and some Public Chargers)

Each EV has an inbuilt charger capable of receiving AC power. The charging port could have different fittings depending on where you are in the world. Even the same vehicle model sold in different countries could have different implementations.

Type 1 (SAE J1772 or "J Plug")

This plug is common in Australasia, Asia, the US and Canada.

Type 2 (IEC 62196 or "Mennekes")

This plug is common in Europe.

Fast Charging

Only available in some public chargers, this uses DC power to charge the battery directly. Each EV has a maximum speed at which it can be charged, and batteries are only fastcharged up to 80% capacity to ensure battery health. There are a number of different port configurations.

Many fast chargers will have multiple connectors, and power capacity (which is increasing as the technology improves).

CCS (Combined Charging System)
CCS ports are a combination of the slow charging port and an extra 2-pin socket. Therefore they can be either Type 1 or Type 2.

Type 1 CCS Combo
Type 2 CCS Combo

CHAdeMo

Developed in Japan, the CHAdeMO is common in vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf.

Tesla

Tesla developed their own fastcharge connector, although in some countries without proprietary Tesla chargers, the vehicle has a cable to adapt to CHAdeMO or Type 2 CCS.

How Fast Can An EV Charge?

Slow charging (home and public)
Slow charging is limited by the lower of: the EV's onboard charging speed, or the output of the wall-mounted charger you are plugged into. Charging speed is measured in kilowatts(kW). For example: your wall-mounted charger can output 32 Amps at 240 volts = 7.68 kW of power, however your EV's onboard charger is 6.6 kW - then that is the maximum speed. The higher the battery capacity, the more time it takes to charge.

Fast charging
DC fast chargers are being built with higher capacities, however this is still limited by the hardware limitations the EV manufacturer has placed on the battery. Most DC fast chargers start at 40kW (many have a much higher capacity).

Tesla Model X Pros & Cons

The Tesla Model X is, arguably, the most versatile electric vehicle on sale today. It has a good range, it's fast, and it has plenty of space.

Features

The Model X comes with five seats as standard but this can be upgraded to as many as seven. When the rear seats aren't in use, the second and third rows can be folded down flat. This feature means the Model X has a total cargo capacity of 88.1 cubic feet - more than any of its competitors.

Like the Model S, a 17-inch touchscreen is the centerpiece of the cabin in the Model X. Bluetooth, collision avoidance, automatic emergency braking, a rearview camera, power and heated side mirrors, and proximity key entry are all standard features.

Optional extras include Enhanced Autopilot, a 17-speaker sound system, a high amperage charger, and satellite radio.

Style

Rear falcon wing doors are a key stylistic feature of the Model X. The doors have sensors to ensure they don't hit obstacles when they open. Not only are the falcon wing doors stylish but they also offer excellent access to the second and optional third-row seats.

There's great visibility in the front, thanks to the Model X's panoramic windshield. This also means that all passengers can expect good headroom.

 

Tesla Model X 75D Specifics

A 75 kWh battery powers the Model X 75D’s 245kW electric motor, which produces 387 lb-ft of torque.

The end result of all this power is a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 130 mph. This is the slowest in the Model X range but, for an SUV, this is still very respectable performance.

The Model X 75D is good for 237 miles between charges. Charge times are good too and a Tesla Supercharger can provide up to 167 miles of range in just 30 minutes. If you want to charge from home, using a Level 2 charger, you’ll get 33 miles of range per hour.
