Tesla Broke The Electric Vehicle Towing Record Pulling A Qantas 787 Dreamliner

Qantas & Tesla have publically solidified their new relationship by way of a PR stunt involving a Tesla Model X P100D and a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The national airline announced recently that Qantas frequent flyers will be able to charge their Tesla vehicles at Qantas Valet parking stations across the country.

Showing off the flagship products of both brands, the Tesla towed the 130-tonne weight of the new Dreamliner under its impressive power, and its power alone.

The dual electric motors, as well documented during our time with both the Model S and Model X, can deliver a face-melting amount of torque and set supercar-crushing 0-60 kilometre per hour times of 2.3 seconds.

For this record, however, the Model X required an update with special torque vectoring software enabling it to generate over 9,500nM of torque at the wheels. That’s almost six times the amount of power you’ll squeeze out of a Bugatti Chiron.
