But the Tesla was the first electric passenger auto to achieve this feat.

This isn't the first time that the Tesla crossover has exhibited its impressive towing capabilities.

Tesla and Qantas teamed up to complete a Guinness World Record for the heaviest tow by an electric passenger vehicle on Tuesday. Tesla owners who are apart of Qantas' Frequent Flyer program will have their mileage offset in their vehicles as well as their flight miles for the month of June as part of their Future Planet Program. Compared to other models, which have also pulled airplanes successfully in the past, such as Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayene S Diesel, the Tesla Model X P100D offers far more torque. The two companies met on a Melbourne Airport taxiway for the challenge.

The Tesla Model X P100D is rated to tow 2267 kg of weight. A fully charged Model X can go up to 465 km on a single charge.

Cars towing airplanes isn't really out-of-the-box thinking. In an event in India, Tata Hexa pulled a 285-tonne Airbus A380 a year ago for 73 meters, which is highly impressive.

Talking about the Tesla Model X P100D's mechanical strength, the EV uses an electric motor with the maximum output of 1,072Nm of torque. Never has a passenger airliner been hitched to an electric passenger vehicle for towing. 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.
