Tesla Model X racing at Goodwood Festival of Speed [Video]

Model X racing

After the Tesla Model S conquered the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb last weekend, now it’s time for the Model X to race up a hill, but an ocean away at the Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb.

Goodwood Festival of Speed is an important racing festival and motor show in West Sussex, England.

It features a hill climb event on a track with an elevation change of 92.7 metres, for an average gradient of 4.9%.

Formula one cars and custom vehicles made their way up the hill, but it is the first time for an all-electric SUV like the Model X.

It is special to see such a large vehicle moving so fast on narrow roads. The Model X P90D can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and has a total power output of 532 hp on Ludicrous mode.

Tesla shared a video of the event:
