The event not only proved Tesla's towing power, but it also kick-started Qantas's new sustainability campaign, showing how innovation can increase sustainability in the transportation industry. Compared to other models, which have also pulled airplanes successfully in the past, such as Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayene S Diesel, the TeslaModel X P100D offers far more torque.
Although it's rated to tow 2500kg, the Model X managed to pull the 130-tonne airplane almost 300 metres. Its dual electric motors generated a huge amount of torque (967 Nm), which helped it tow the Dreamliner to nearly 300 metres. It is not known how much battery the Tesla was left with the completion of the stunt.
Comparatively, the official towing capacity of the model is said to be just 2.5 tons.
