That is the lesson we learned when Tesla CEO Elon Musk retweeted the following GIF from the @ElektrekCo Twitter account.

Yep, that’s Tesla’s version of an SUV casually pulling a semi truck. Up a mound. In a snowstorm.
5, 000 lb towing limit, lol. Ben # ModelX # Tesla # TeslaSemi # Snow # DualMotor

According to Electrek, this passed last week in Raleigh when a worker identified Ben Spreen drew the truck up a hill so the semi could get better resistance in the icy preconditions. Much to the shock of the videographer, it altogether worked.
And apparently, it wasn’t remotely a number of problems for the Model X, which has a supposed towing ability of five, 000 pounds.
As Spreen wrote on Facebook, “No power restriction at all. That certainly wasn’t hard-handed on the car. I’ve driven it much harder without heat-soaking.”
While the display by the Model X is horribly impressive--it apparently impressed Musk, anyway--a Twitter jokester made a good point seeing Tesla’s issues with the sluggish pace in doing the financial Model 3.
Maybe Tesla can use a Model X to pull Model 3s through the production line.
