Cars towing airplanes isn't really out-of-the-box thinking. Given the massive coverage this event received, other auto brands soon entered the fray to dethrone the record set by the Touareg. But this is the tarmac, and here it managed to pull the 130 tonne Dreamliner nearly 300 metres. The Germans retaliated with the Porsche Cayenne S Diesel a year ago, which pulled a 285-tonne Airbus A380 for an impressive 73 metres.
At Melbourne airport Monday morning, a Tesla Model X P100D towed a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner down a taxiway. Qantas Airways, which owns the aircraft in question, revealed that this was the first time that a production electric vehicle towed a passenger aeroplane.

Built with just 5000-lb rated capacity, Tesla's Model X is the only electric passenger vehicle with the highest towing capacity now offered in the market.
While the Dreamliner didn't have any passengers or cargo on board, and it only had a small amount of fuel, it's an incredibly impressive feat for the Tesla vehicle, which can typically tow about 5,500 pounds, according to a press release. This model has all-wheel drive thanks to a dual-motor setup and makes peak torque off-the-line.
