We set out to tow a trailer with the Tesla Model 3 and were surprised to find out Autopilot works while towing, but energy use is insanely high.

Welcome back to a new episode from our InsideEVs YouTube channel. We're thrilled to have over 1,000 subscribers and we hope that the content we bring you on a weekly basis is something fresh and new to look forward to. If you haven't yet subscribed, you can do so here.

Back to the towing task at hand. InsideEVs YouTube host Kyle Conner meets up with a Ben, a friend and the owner of the stealth Tesla Model 3 Performance featured in this towing video. The two load up the trailer and set out to get some more gear en route to the InsideEVs test track and video HQ.

What will the energy consumption be? Will the Model 3 make it to the Supercharger along the route? Will the only Supercharger stall that's set up to accommodate trailers be available when the Model 3 arrives?

A lot of questions. It's time to seek the answers and there's only one way to find out. Hit the road with us as we tow with the Model 3. A word of warning for those who like to see energy consumption at a minimum, you won't find that here. Let's tow and consume those electrons like there's no tomorrow.
