    No need to tow it. 2400 pounds should easily fit in the Model 3's trunk, frunk or even glove box.

    Perhaps he mis-spelled. He meant it will weigh 2400 lbs ;)

    Stop posting speculation in the form of a statement.

    If you want a moderator to take action, please use the REPORT button. There are hundreds of posts a day on TMC and the moderators cannot read all of them.

    I have reported the OP and requested the thread title be edited.

    It will be a Class I hitch which is rated up to 2000#. Class II is up to 3500# and no way it will be that.

    Tow rating --> 2000#

    Thread title amended to reflect speculative nature.

    I know Elon tweeted M3 having a hitch but I don't believe it has come up since. (He also said M3 would have the cockpit of a spaceship.) Has it been confirmed?

    Yeah, because "hitch" is just as open to interpretation as "spaceship."
