Yes, the Tesla Model X can tow, but how much range will you lose?
One of the most important questions we get about EVs is, “Can they tow?” Well, yes they can, but whether or not they are rated to tow is another great question. In addition, people want to know how much range is eliminated due to towing.
The Tesla Model X is one of few EVs with a reasonably high towing capacity. In fact, most EVs aren’t even rated to tow, especially on our shores. Based on U.S. ratings and regulations, the Model X can tow a reasonable ~5,000 pounds. However, that’s not much when compared to rivals’ models. As CEO Elon Musk has stated on numerous occasions, Tesla vehicles can and will tow way more than competing models. But, in most cases, more capacity may not be needed.
