Tesla Model X Tows Boat – Videos
We’ve finally come across some video of the Tesla Model X conducting some real-world towing.
Unfortunately, the videos are very brief and don’t show us much, but we do know that the boat, trailer and associated gear weigh in at approximately 4,850 pounds, which is just shy of the max tow rating for the Model X.
The Tesla Model X is rated to tow up to 5,000 pounds, provided that it’s optioned properly.
To tow 5,000 pounds, the Model X requires the $750 Tow Package and must be fitted with 20-inch wheels, not the optional 22-inch wheels.
If you opt for 22-inch wheels, the tow rating of the Model X falls sharply to 3,500 pounds.
The YouTube uploader says that he’ll conduct some more extensive tests with this towing rig to see how it impacts the Model X’s range. We hope those videos and data get posted soon.
