Tesla Model X owner Bjorn Nyland provides us with perhaps the most detailed look yet at the Model X's towing capability, including how various trailer and other tow-behinds impact efficiency and range of the Model X.

Nyland's general consensus is that towing has a huge impact on the efficiency (and thus total range) of the Model X. According to Nyland, energy consumption of the X can basically double when towing.

Nyland concludes that the low-line X, the 60D, can have range reduced to just 70 miles or so when towing a large load.

Officially, the Model X is rated to tow up to 5,000 pounds. However, Tesla doesn't exactly explain the impact of towing on range beyond stating that towing may reduce range.
