Tesla Model X 'Tows' Tractor Trailer In The Snow

January 9, 2018


This is a video of a Tesla employee using his Model X 90D vehicle to help tow a 56,500-pound United States Postal Service tractor trailer that got stuck in the snow in Raleigh, North Carolina. I say help tow, because you can see the tractor trailer is also spinning its wheels, they're both just struggling to gain any traction in the wintery conditions. So 'Tesla Model X And Tractor Trailer Simultaneously Struggle To Gain Traction In The Snow'' might also be a fitting title. Or 'GW's Handsomeness Causes Princess To Swoon', which was actually my original choice before my editor shot it down for "being too accurate" and then passing out when I winked at him.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to n0nentity, who once towed a monster truck out of a muddy ditch with his bicycle. Wow -- let me see those calves!

    The Tesla X has a towing capacity of 5000 pounds. My F150 had a towing capacity of 5000 pounds.

    That said, I don't know how much that was really helping. They could have tossed some sort of traction material under the truck's wheels and had the driver... you know... do whatever it is drivers are supposed to do.

    Can't wait for the day when all of the awesomeness of a Tesla is just called "a normal, regular car", and every other type of car disappears like the original Model Ts.

    The size of that truck in the video reminded me of afterooster's wife!!! Afterooster would totally tow her if he had to, I'm guessing. She's beautiful, but needs to be towed in the winter.=)
