Where did they hide the 12v battery posts, and how to tow a MX?

    Behind the Model S nosecone is the tow-eye and, perhaps more importantly, the battery terminals. These are useful for when the 12v battery has died and the car needs to be unlocked; the tow-eye is useful for moving the car when a flatbed isn't available.

    As the MX doesn't have a nosecone, does this mean that the frunk can be opened manually, or have they moved the posts & tow-eye elsewhere?

    There is a new button on the remote to unplug the 12v battery from the car. With this towing the X will be very easy ;-)
