Model S Towing. Speed and energy consumption.
KmanAuto tows a big generator on a small trailer with his recently installed EcoHitch on his Tesla Model S 60 kWh.
Not only does the Model S tow the guesstimated weight of 300 pounds flawlessly, it only used slightly more power versus not towing.
Kman towed the generator 129 miles to his destination, dropped off the generator, and picked up a 40-pound hitch basket before driving back another 129 miles. All without any issues.
There are multiple scenes of towing this trailer at different levels of acceleration and power use, as you will see in the video above.
*Editor's note: Per Tesla Motors, the Model S is not rated for towing. Towing with a Model S could void your warranty.
