After delivering 2,400 all-electric Model Xs over the past three months, and 2,614 in total since the launch last September, performance reviews on the Tesla SUV are becoming more and more common.
Reviews on the Tesla Model X pulling a 24′ trailer? Not so much.
In this case, a Model X P90DL (vin #006 specifically) gets hitched up to a Bowlus Road Chief, a pretty swell rig that is 24 feet long, is very aerodynamic, and weighs just 2,300lbs.
- 0-60 MPH in 5.5 seconds
- Range (at speed): 175 miles (or “70% of the 250 miles EPA rated distance for the P90D)

On the Road Chief itself:
“The 8,000-BTU air-conditioning unit, propane fuel tank, absorbent glass-mat batteries and various antennae are packed within the metal envelope. Bikes, kayaks and other long items can be transported inside the trailer using integrated cargo racks to suspend them in the aisle.” – states a recent WSJ review on the Bowlus
