Watch This Tesla Model S Get Charged By Being Towed – Video
Though we’d never recommend this method of charging, it does work.
In the video, you’ll see a Tesla Model S charge up while being towed. Maybe that is something you just have to do in Russia when you are in a pinch? Anyway, the Model S owner gains back about 10 kilometers of range over 3 minutes worth of towing at 60 kilometers per hour – going by the dash readout.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this. A Nissan LEAF has been documented as charging while being towed too.
Why would anyone do this? Just to prove it’s possible, we guess.
