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.
