Tesla Model X Effortlessly Tows A Boeing 787 Dreamliner

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

A Tesla just towed a Qantas Dreamliner

However, there have been instances before where production cars towed aircraft.

Avid motoring enthusiasts probably remember Volkswagen towing a Boeing 747 with a diesel V10 Touareg.

Joining the league, the popular German brand, Porsche beat the record with its Cayenne S Diesel that pulled a 285-tonne Airbus A380 for 73 meters in 2017.

The video itself can be seen below.

This isn't the first time that the Tesla crossover has exhibited its impressive towing capabilities.

The company released a video on Tuesday showing the electric SUV towing a 287,000 pound Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The Model X towed the empty aircraft for about 300 metres creating the world record.

The distance was enough for the Tesla to break a new Guiness World Record for the heaviest tow by an electric passenger vehicle. The electric automaker teamed up with Qantas for a publicity stunt in which a Tesla Model X P100D pulled a 287,000-pound Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner almost 1,000 feet down the tarmac at the Melbourne Airport in Australia.

EVs are renowned for their massive torque figures and the fact that all this firepower is available at a tap of the accelerator, unlike conventional internal combustion engines. This model has all-wheel drive thanks to a dual-motor setup and makes peak torque off-the-line.
