It's obvious Elon Musk has been watching a lot of The Walking Dead, as he (and his team at Tesla) added a real "Bioweapon Defense Mode" button into the car. 

Basically, the Model X's air filter is 10 times the size and strength of a regular automotive air filter, which, according to The Verge, is 300 times better at filtering bacteria, 500 times better at filtering allergens, 700 times better at filtering smog, and 800 times better at filtering viruses.

So, the next time a mysterious "flu" sweeps your city and people start turning into zombies, jump into your all-electric SUV,  hit the "Bioweapon Defense Mode"  button in the most dramatic way possible, and live happily ever after. Assuming, you know, there's gallons of water, crates full of food, and a crossbow (or katana sword, semi-automatic, the list goes on) in the trunk.
