Electric torque on display as Tesla Model X tows a Qantas Dreamliner

Electric torque on display as Tesla Model X tows a Qantas Dreamliner

The Tesla Model X is a very capable crossover vehicle.

The Tesla Model X P100D is rated to tow 2267 kg of weight.

A Telsa might be now flying through space on its way to Mars, but in Melbourne today, Elon Musk's electric vehicle produced another first when it set a Guinness World Record attempt, as the heaviest tow by an electric production passenger vehicle, towing a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner along the tarmac. That was enough to hand the Tesla the Guinness World Record for "heaviest tow by an electric production passenger vehicle".

Qantas, an Austrailian airliner organised the stunt to highlight its partnership with the Electric Vehicle maker, Tesla.

Why the Tesla and Qantas partnership?

Now, Qantas did the stunt to promote their collaboration with Tesla and their rewards for Tesla owners, but it can't be denied that the Model X is a very capable vehicle and kudos to Tesla here because it's made something that stands apart from the crowd. The tow lasted almost one-thousand feet by the large amount of torque provided by the Tesla's dual electric motors.

The Model X has an advertised towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, but there's no question that Tesla's crossover SUV is much more powerful than that.

Qantas and Tesla are working together to bring clean transportation to the masses and sustain it for the future. A Tesla Model X was imported in India sometime back.
