The VW Touareg already did this with a 747 back in 2006 so I'm not impressed

A year ago Porsche used the Cayenne Diesel S to pull a Airbus A380, so Tesla don't get to excited.

After so many years (>10 years) we finally saw a machine that can could compete against the touareg. Nice try but 10 years ago the Touareg did this, try imagine what it can do now 10 years later. but nice try! PS: how is this even record breaking?! smh

A VW towed a larger plane, and a Ford F150 Stopped a military aircraft, so im not impressed.

I love how ironic this is as Elon Musk just proclaimed "Tesla does not do marketing" and "mass media is funded by oil companies" to criticize Tesla when they go and pull shit off like this. The man is not only a crook in terms of Wall Street & reservation holders, but also a pathological liar.

It’s because it has an electric motor, motors have a lot of talk. Not that impressive if I’m honest

A VW Touareg once towed a 747. That's more impressive. Well i'd be impressed if that Model X towed an A380.

Near empty tank with no passangers on board except 2 captins on board, impressive but now let's fill that baby up with fuel and passangers see if it can haul it then cause that's what the small trucks that pull the air planes do haul it loaded (idk what there called sorry)

So the other day, my private jet broke down and had to land right on the highway. I took my Model X and easily brought my jet back to the hangar. Best purchase ever.

I don’t like electric cars that much because I like to hear the sound of powerful engines that actually make you feel like you are driving something fast.

The power and torque is no problem at all. The only real problem is maintaining traction, so that torque can actually be applied for something more than wheelspin. . A strongman (human) can pull an airline twice the weight of this one, at 416,000 pound. And i absolutely guarantee you a Tesla can out-pull a strongman.

Well yeah, the tow rating is only for on road towing. So like a 6.7 Fords is 12,500 it’s safe to drive on the road towing that much but it’s capable of more

Colin Vos (3 months ago)
of course can it pull that weight, when its up to speed its really easy to keep it rolling, the only difficult part is, getting it to move. And still, even a 60 HP Citroen C1 can pull a plane, it just takes more time

This car is getting way too much credit considering its battery operated. Something that requires a charge to use that energy to move. Double handling. Pointless. Too many idiots with too much money not to see its pointless.

Well no, last year Porsche managed more. A380 is much heavier than the CFRP B 787 https://www.motor1.com/news/144096/porsche-cayenne-pulls-airbus-a380/
