2016 Tesla Model X: Edmunds Tahoe Tow Test | Part 3
Our Edmunds EV expert Dan Edmunds, director of vehicle testing, tests out the 2016 Tesla Model X EV's towing prowess while hauling a 1,500-pound Happier Camper HC1 fiberglass trailer. After all, this electric vehicle does have a tow hitch and a 3,500-pound tow rating.
Part 3 is the fairly easy final segment of the Tesla Model X tow test, starting from Truckee, California (400 miles north of Lake Tahoe). Of course there is the little matter of 4,000 feet of elevation gain in one of the stints between Supercharger stations, which caused some anxiety.
This third day of driving 283 miles totaled about 9 hours, while day four of driving 213 miles took about 7 hours. The total trip summary: 1,013 miles in 39 hours, 54 minutes, with 11 stops. The average charge time: 1 hour and 13 minutes.
