Tesla Model X Tows Boeing Gets Guinness World Record 1 Electric torque on display as Tesla Model X tows a Qantas Dreamliner

Cars towing airplanes isn't really out-of-the-box thinking. Given the massive coverage this event received, other vehicle brands soon entered the fray to dethrone the record set by the Touareg. The Tesla Model X P100D, which has arguably the greatest towing power of any electric production vehicle calmly tows the plane down the runway. Ever since that stint, a bunch of carmakers have attempted at surpassing the record and Nissan accomplished the goal by pulling a gargantuan 170-tonne cargo plane in 2013.

The short video that you see above of a Tesla Model X towing a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner belonging to Qantas is actually a marketing stunt by the Australian airline and a pretty cool one at that. The tow lasted almost one-thousand feet by the large amount of torque provided by the Tesla's dual electric motors. In an event in India, Tata Hexa pulled a 285-tonne Airbus A380 past year for 73 meters, which is highly impressive. The electric SUV drove into the history books for setting the very specific record of "heaviest tow by an electric production passenger vehicle".

Electric Vehicle brand Tesla has now hopped onto the car-towing-airplanes bandwagon. The Model X towed the airplane for nearly 1,000 feet seemingly without breaking a sweat. That said, the VW Touareg V10 TDI is rated at 750Nm and the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel puts out 850Nm of top torque.
