    Customers will continue to stretch the envelope of uses for Tesla electric drive. Far more things than the engineers ever envisioned.

    So… they were able to tow a glider (1300 pounds with maximum payload) up to 60mph?

    Look, I like the Model X and think it's a great car, but this isn't anything any other moderately capable vehicle could accomplish.

    Helps dispel the still-held perception among many that electric vehicles are wimpy?

    I want to see it from the glider's perspective.

    Then show us. At least the MX accel does it in a shorter runway.
