    Does anyone have any real experience towing something substantial with the Model X? I am considering purchasing one and before I do I want to better understand the towing situation. I have been trying to get information but not very successfully. I talked to someone at Tesla who actually said he heard that going uphill towing 5,000 lbs you would only have an 80 mile range. I would like to hear from those with any real experience. Thank you.

    Keep in mind that's
    • 2300lbs
    • incredible aerodynamic trailer
    • Seemed to be rather flat terrain
    Here is someone towing a 4,850 lb boat which seems to come pretty close to the numbers you were told.
