A Tesla Model X performed something which was thought to be virtually impossible. A video footage shows the electric crossover being capable to tow a truck-trailer assembly that was stuck on a snowy road in the US state of North Carolina.

Elon Musk impressed by Model X performance

It is officially known that a Model X can tow a trailer with a maximum weight of 2,300 kilograms and that is possible thanks to a system that controls the torque distribution between the two axles.

In this case, the driver was using Slip Start mode, which can help Model X drivers navigate certain difficult road conditions such as snow, gravel, or a deep rut.

However, it’s still amazing that the electric car managed to pull a truck that is at least ten times heavier than the Model X towing capacity.

After seeing the remarkable stunt, Tesla’s chief, Elon Musk, did not hesitate to praise and promote Model X on Twitter.
