Wasn't sure what I was looking at when I saw the rear Gull Wing doors open and then realized the SUV is the new Model X Tesla...

Looks like 7 passenger with tree row seating.

Did notice a small trailer hitch... curious as to what the tow capacity rating is for the first all electric SUV.

I've read class III which should equal 8500 lbs

Factory site says 5,000 lbs towing and 250+ range... and over 700 lbs of torque with a 155 mph top speed...

Model X | Tesla Motors

Unless you've upgraded the tires from stock, there's no way a RWD can garner enough traction to do 0-60 in less than 3.5. Pretty much anything that's under 3.5 seconds for 0 to 60MPH is AWD or setting on true drag slicks.

It is all wheel drive and they never specified what tires it had on it.

We've had a Tesla charging station at our nearby mall for several years now. We've seen ONE at it ONE time, ONCE. :laughing:

I think Edmunds towed an off road style teardrop camper with it and it got the equivalent of 15 mpg when you convert the cost of the electricity used to the cost of gas. They also had to unhook the trailer whenever they wanted to use one of the superchargers (which was quite often).
