Tesla Model X tows Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Previously, a video surfaced on the internet wherein Tesla Model X driver showed up to help the truck stuck on a snowy road in the region of Raleigh, North Carolina.

The tow auto in the video is a Model X P100D, and the plane is the latest Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, carrying a "small amount of fuel on board" but no passengers.

We have seen dozens of videos of Tesla's punching above their weight towing everything from jeeps to semi-trailers, but this video takes the cake.

It towed the Qantas Airlines jet almost 1,000 feet on a taxiway at Australia's Melbourne Airport.

Now was there a legitimate goal behind all of this?

A Telsa might be now flying through space on its way to Mars, but in Melbourne today, Elon Musk's electric vehicle produced another first when it set a Guinness World Record attempt, as the heaviest tow by an electric production passenger vehicle, towing a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner along the tarmac.

The Tesla is the electric passenger vehicle with the highest towing capacity now on the market, so it's not surprising that it was able to tow such a heavy load - but it's still impressive, as publicity stunts go.
