Bjørn Nyland Ruins His Tesla Model X Winter Off-Roading – Video
Bjørn Nyland heads to a “fricking challenging” offroad track in NAF Trafikksenter, Våler, Norway to see how Optimus Prime (his Tesla Model X) fares.
The location is a sanctuary for professional truck drivers to come train. It’s complete with fast chargers, a hotel, and a cafeteria. However, its offroad track seems to be the big draw. We’re talking about two-tracks through the woods with trees everywhere, at times the trees are so close together he can barely navigate through, not to mention logs in the way and lots of hills, deep, muddy ruts, and snow.
Next up is some downhill Model X “skiing.” This time Nyland gets stuck in some deep snow-covered mud ruts and has to call for help. This is pure Model X abuse, although he says he probably messed up the paint, Nyland wants us to know he’s not intentionally attempting to ruin his car. He could’ve fooled us. A few pieces of the car come off and he says his wife is going to yell at him because insurance will not cover it.
They head inside to find that the damage is worse. Bjørn exclaims in his usual fashion:
“Ahhhhh shhhhiiiiiiiyyyyyyt … there goes my Christmas money.”
He says there will be a follow-up episode once he figures out the specifics and cost of the damage.

Do not try this yourself. Tesla might void your warranty.
I tried my Tesla Model X P90DL on an offroad track in NAF Trafikksenter, Våler, Norway. To my surprise, the Model X did it quite well and was only stuck once in that very deep dip.
