I've spoken with my contact in Tesla UK which also seems to be the Model S European expert and he says there will be NO hitch on the sedan based Model S. After what he said that's one of the few things they have been willing to be very clear on, no hitch.
I personally thing that is a really really stupid idea for the European market, but I've seen evidence and it appears Tesla US doesn't understand that the European market is very different than the US market. A lot more different than the differences in the US market. It seems you will have to wait for the SUV bodyshell wich surely will have AWD and a hitch.
Well that is surely dissappointing. Every other luxury car maker in that class offers hitches with excellent tow ratings, usually over 4000 lbs. No Model S for me if this turns out to be true, we are a one car family and I absolutely need a hitch.
A SUV is out of the question, I have no need for such a tall vehicle with high air resistance and bad handling. I also don't need AWD, FWD will do just fine. RWD is out of the question though.
Weel, maybe my next car will be a Leaf 2.0 then, if they offer a large enough battery. Or maybe Lexus will put something nice out with the technology Toyota gets from Tesla.
