Tesla Model X’s impressive feat --- tows 250,000-pound cargo!
In a remarkable feat which is indicative of the impressive towing capability of Tesla’s Model X all-electric SUV, the vehicle effortlessly pulled approximately 250,000 pounds (125 tons) of muck from The Boring Company’s tunnel!
The Tesla Model X electric SUV’s latest feat of strength was highlighted by the electric-vehicle manufacturer’s high-profile CEO Elon Musk in a video recently posted on Twitter. The video marked Musk’s response to a query by one of his followers about the towing limit of Model X. The vehicle incidentally has a rated towing capacity of 3,500-5,000 pounds.
In the video, the Model X can be clearly seen pulling out 250,000-pounds worth of muck and rail cars from The Boring Co. tunnel. The massive cargo was towed by the electric SUV at an extremely regulated speed, which allowed the tires of the vehicle to gain sufficient traction. The effortless towing of the cargo by Model X was also apparently facilitated by the instant torque produced by the two electric motors of the vehicle.
Along with highlighting the Model X’s impressive 250,000-pounds cargo-hauling feat in the Twitter video, Musk also revealed in a Twitter session on Thursday that the all-electric SUV has formidable power to beat challengers, including the Chevy Camaro 350 IROC-Z, in tug-of-war matches. Overall, Musk essentially asserted the fact that the Tesla Model X electric SUV is an exceptionally sturdy vehicle, even though it is equipped with advanced technology and innovative features!
