    Specs for the Model X are not yet released - that's a prototype vehicle. Elon has tweeted about the towing capability, but that tweet was removed. The assumption is that there will be a hitch mount, but information like size and towing capability have not been announced. (Heck, we don't even know what the final vehicle config will be.)

    Thanks Bonnie - Seeing the (maybe just fake) model C concepts floating around these days, I thought they may be thinking about a hitch/rack or even an 'opportunity hitch accessory' assembly of sorts :)
    These are what I'm referring to - see the bike rack concept sketch.

    Thanks for the info. Figure it being a crossover it would have some power to atleast pull a jetski or something. Nothing huge like a boat.

    So I wonder who had to walk into Elon's office and tell him, "Um, Mr. Musk, even though you've said it's a goal, we're not exactly sure that the X will be able to tow yet so could you please delete the tweet you just sent?"

    I'm just guessing the rest of that conversation wasn't so fun.
