Tesla Model X: Falcon Doors Are Not Practical At All?
What is there not to like about the latest Tesla Model X? Well, we have one answer and it is with the crossover’s Falcon doors. Yes, it might be innovative, futuristic and stylish but it is not practical at all.
Just yesterday, we experienced heavy snow but we weren’t bothered to shove the snow off the roofs of our BMW X5. If we are to drive the Tesla Model X, it is very important to remove the snow on the vehicle because it could have an undesirable effect on the Falcon doors. The way we see it, forcing the Falcon doors open can force the snow inside the cabin or possibly damage the doors.
The next major issue with the Falcon doors is when driving the Model X in the city. Parking in the city often involves tight spaces and we do wonder how to open the doors when in such situation without banging on the cars parked next to the Model X.
Tesla is simply trying too hard to make a big impression with the Model X. The crossover ends up as something that is too expansive, too impractical and too complicated. Even so, we are not saying that the Model X will be the end of Tesla. Instead, it is a big leap forward for the EV giant.
