One of the most exciting decisions when buying a new Tesla Model X is which color to choose. The color of your Tesla reflects your style and personality, and there are more practical considerations too.
In this article, we’re going to look at every Tesla Model X exterior and interior color to help you find the right combination for your car.
Tesla Model X Exterior Colors
The five Tesla Model X exterior colors are:
- Pearl White Multi-Coat
- Deep Blue Metallic
- Midnight Silver Metallic
- Red Multi-Coat
- Solid Black
These are the same exterior colors available on the Tesla Model S, Model 3, and Model Y. Though the Model Y also has two additional color options, available exclusively on models sold in the Middle East and Europe.
Pearl White Multi-Coat
The standard color for a Tesla Model X is Pearl White Multi-Coat. As the standard option, one of the most significant advantages of choosing Pearl White Multi-Coat is that it doesn’t cost any extra.
Another advantage of choosing white for your Tesla Model X is that scratches are less evident on lighter-colored cars than they are on darker vehicles. If you expect your car to pick up a few scratches and you care about people not being able to spot this wear and tear easily, then white could be the best color choice for you.
On the other hand, the downside of a white color scheme is that dirt is very noticeable. If you care about how you
Deep Blue Metallic
If you want your Model X to stand out, but you don’t want something quite as flashy as bright red, then Deep Metallic Blue is a fantastic choice.
The deep blue color has a subtle metallic shine that looks great in the sun. As it is a deep blue, the color will hide dirt reasonably well, though any scratches will be more noticeable than they would be on a lighter color.
Midnight Silver Metallic
If you want a subtle color but something that is a bit more interesting than white or black, then Midnight Silver Metallic may be the choice for you.
Midnight Silver is also a good all-rounder. Scratches won’t show up as much as they would on a black car, while dirt won’t show up as much as it would on a white car.
Finally, Midnight Silver comes with a subtle metallic sheen, which gives it a little bit more character without being overly flashy.
Do you want your car to be loud, vibrant, eye-catching, and turn heads as you drive by? Then there’s really only one color choice to go for… Red Multi-Coat is the Model X color that will get you and your car noticed!
One downside to being noticed is the theory that red cars are more frequently stopped by the police. Though fortunately, this appears to be a myth.
Whether you choose Red Multi-Coat comes down to two factors: Are you willing to pay the extra versus the standard white color? And do you want to stand out from the crowd? If the answer is yes, then there’s no better color than bright red!
Solid Black might be the way to go if you’re looking for a classic, understated look for your Model X. Black is also a good choice for hiding dirt, so it may be the color to choose if you won’t have time to clean your Model X regularly.
The downside of buying a black Tesla Model X is that any scratches will be more obvious. This is because scratches are always more easily visible on darker color cars.
Scratches showing up on your black color scheme may not be a problem if you plan to take great care of your Model X and keep it in pristine condition, but if you think it may pick up a lot of scratches, then black is probably a color to avoid.
Tesla Model X Interior Colors
The three Tesla Model X interior colors are:
- All Black
- Black and White
The All Black interior is a classic choice that will never go out of style. The black seats and interior panels create a cohesive and sophisticated look. Plus, black is easy to maintain and hides dirt and damage well.
Black and White
The black and white interior is a popular choice among Model X owners, as the white seats and door sidings with black linings create a striking contrast.
However, do keep in mind that white can be harder to keep clean. The interior of your car may also show more obvious signs of wear and tear if you go for a partially white finish.
Looking for something a bit different from black and white? Then the cream interior option could be the choice for your Model X.
Cream provides a warm, inviting, and luxurious feel. However, like white, cream may not be the best choice if you have children or pets, as it can be very difficult to keep clean.
What is the best color for a Tesla Model X?
The best color for your Tesla Model X is ultimately a matter of personal preference. However, there are a few practical considerations that may help you make your decision.
- Cost: If you’re worried about the cost of your Model X, then white would be the best option for you, as it’s the only color that doesn’t cost extra.
- Wear and tear: Scratches are more noticeable on darker color cars. So if you care about keeping scratches hidden, consider choosing Pearl White or Midnight Silver.
- Dirt: In contrast to scratches, dirt is more noticeable on lighter-colored cars. So, if you won’t be able to wash your Model X regularly, choosing Solid Black or Deep Blue will help to hide the dirt.
- Style: Do you want to turn heads with a flash car that grabs attention? If you do, Red is your obvious choice. Alternatively, Deep Blue offers a splash of color without being quite so flashy.
- Resale value: Studies have shown that red Teslas often hold their value better than other colors.
Of course, while you may want to weigh up all of these factors and come to a logical conclusion, when it comes to color choice, it can often be best to go with your gut!
