Autoblog has posted a short video of a Tesla Model X seen towing an enclosed trailer at the Fremont factory test track.
The Model X is rated at 5,000 lbs of towing capacity when paired with a Class III trailer hitch and the optional $750 tow package. There is one caveat, however. The rated towing capacity drops to 3,500 pounds if the owner specifies the optional 22″ wheels. That information came to light only after a customer configured his Model X with the optional wheels and received this notification from the company:
The Model X 90D is rated at 257 miles while the 70D is listed within the Model X configurator as having 220 miles of range. But no one knows at the moment what impact towing will have on available range.
