Tesla CEO Elon Musk just released video showing a Tesla Model X pull 250,000 pounds of muck rail cars out of a tunnel. Yes...250,000 pounds!
Musk notes that no surface is perfect for towing and of course it goes without saying that you should never attempt this with your own Model X, but AWD, coupled with powerful electric motors, seems more than capable of tugging heavy loads along.

This does make us wonder if the Model X is actually being used as The Boring Company's heavy hauler. Sort of make sense since it's electric, which is what's preferred for tunnel usage.
Bunch O Muck
