Check Out 2022 Tesla Model X Official EPA Range/Efficiency Ratings

12/22/2021

The refreshed Tesla Model X (2022 model year) has received its official EPA range and efficiency ratings. Deliveries of the refreshed Model X started in October.

There are two versions of the car available on the market: the Tesla Model X (a new, simple name, but it’s equivalent to the previous Long Range AWD version), and the Tesla Model X Plaid (also Long Range AWD, but equipped with three electric motors for ultra-quick acceleration).

Both versions are available with 20″ and 22″ wheels, and in the case of the Plaid versions, both wheel options have been listed.

As it turns out, the EPA range is 2-3 miles lower than estimates on Tesla’s website.

Unfortunately, we must complain about the EPA, as its documents no longer show the City and Highway range ratings for some of the new cars (2022 model year) – in this case, all three Model X versions.

The base version, with 20″ wheels, has an EPA range of 348 miles (560 km). A small surprise is that according to Tesla’s website, it should be 351 miles (565 km) – a small difference of 3 miles.

According to the manufacturer, the switch to 22″ wheels will decrease the range by over 5% to 332 miles (534 km), but since there is no info on the EPA’s website, we don’t know whether this value also will be a bit lower.

The range of this version is lower compared to 2021 model year equivalent (dual-motor), despite its overall efficiency (including charging losses) improving:

Finally, the Tesla Model X Plaid with 22″ wheels. The EPA Combined range is 311 miles (500 km) – 2 miles less than Tesla estimated.

The 22″ wheels decrease range by 22 miles or 6.6% compared to 20″ wheels.
