Previously, a video surfaced on the internet wherein Tesla Model X driver showed up to help the truck stuck on a snowy road in the region of Raleigh, North Carolina.

The distance was enough for the Tesla to break a new Guiness World Record for the heaviest tow by an electric passenger vehicle. Recently at a Melbourne airport, Tesla's Model X SUV was connected to one of Qantas' Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. Qantas Airways, which owns the aircraft in question, revealed that this was the first time that a production electric vehicle towed a passenger aeroplane. Qantas offers Tesla wall chargers at four airports in Austrailia to offer Tesla Model S and Model X owners a charging point while they are travelling. However, the aircraft weighs 130 tonnes, which is much higher than its rated capacity. Its dual electric motors generated a huge amount of torque (967 Nm), which helped it tow the Dreamliner to nearly 300 metres.

Tesla along with Qantas came together for a more updated take on the same stunt. The Germans retaliated with the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel previous year, which pulled a 285-tonne Airbus A380 for an impressive 73 metres. After the news of Tesla planning to launch the Model 3 in India, many people booked the vehicle but the plan has been deferred for various reasons including the high import tax in the Indian auto market.
