YouTuber and Tesla Model X owner Bjorn Nyland decided to see how well his electric SUV would tow a rather large trailer during a recent journey.

Video description:

"A few weeks ago I pulled a big trailer up the hills of Hemsedal. Despite the heavy load and massive drag caused by the trailer, I had no power restrictions or heat issues at all. A small mistake in the distance: The correct is 13.5 km/8.4 mi. I have license class BE."

Common belief is that electric cars aren't well suited to towing, but as Nyland reports, that doesn't seem to hold true with the Model X.

Check out the video for more information/details.

Earlier this year (just after having taken delivery of his Model X), Bjorn towed a boat as well (video below):
