Tesla Model X camper

What Tesla can you camp in? The Model X for sure! The boot easily turns into a bed. You can sleep comfortably in a Tesla Model X – easily fit a 200x100cm mattress inside. There are some DIY conversions to be found out there too (see images and videos below). The biggest advantage of the Model X is the hidden storage compartments you don’t get in many other cars (two big ones in the boot [or one if you have a 7-seater] and one in the front under the hood). Good to store most of your camping gear. There are two things that might put you off – the price tag of course and the relatively low boot height.

This car’s boot is 210 cm long ⤢, 72 cm tall ↕, and 107 cm wide ↔.

NimbleCamper rating (out of max 5)

  • boot height with boot floor removed(cm): 95 (only for storage – two huge storage compartments in the 5 seater, one in the 7 seater)
  • this storage isn’t usual in other (combustion engine) cars, giving the Tesla a plus point – you could just put a mattress onto the folded seats and store your stuff in this storage. Nothing too big, but good for a short camping trip
  • storage room in the front (where you’ll usually find an engine)
  • Model X owner’s manual
  • NCAP safety rating: 5/5
  • ADAC autotest (lower = better): 1.9

Standard rating (not focused on car camping):

Whatcar.com rating: 4/5 • Autoexpress.co.uk rating: 3.5/5 • Carbuyer.co.uk rating: 3.7/5

Average rating: 3.7/5

An interesting fact: Whatcar.com and Carbuyer.co.uk have rated the Tesla Model X exactly the same as Toyota Prius, and Autoexpress rated the Prius even higher. Considering the price difference and slightly bigger size, the Prius is a better option if you are looking for an electric camper.
