Watch a Tesla Model X Break the Electric Towing Record by Pulling a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner

A new Guinness World Record.

By //Automotive

The Tesla Model X recently broke the Guinness World Record for electric towing by pulling a twin-engine jet airliner.

Part of Qantas Airways promotion of its new rewards program collaboration for Tesla owners, the Model X P100D was used to record the heaviest tow by an electric production passenger vehicle by towing a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The Model X was able to impressively pull the plane thanks to a state of the art dual electric motor setup connected to a software-controlled torque vectoring system. Generating 9,500 Nm of wheel torque, the electric motors and vectoring system gave the Model X in the video optimal traction for the towing load. Going well above its 5,000-lb towing capacity, the incredible feat tested the midsize crossover utility vehicle and showed the level of performance design Elon Musk has set for the company.

Watch the record-setting video of a Tesla Model X P100D pulling a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner above and let us know what you think.

In case you missed it, Telsa recently offered new interior options for the Tesla Model S and Model X.
