Today we can bring you another story about troubled EV maker Tesla and – wait, hey, everyone, come and look at this cool thing on Twitter!
This footage of a Model X pulling a Qantas-operated Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner sure is pretty neat. It shows off the car’s ridiculous pulling power, although we’d imagine that if a consumer tried this they might just void their warranty.
But this is, of course, an attempt to distract Tesla’s observers from the fact that the company really isn’t in good shape right now. Production problems persist, staff morale is reportedly on the floor and debts are mounting.
There’s one glimmer of positivity in all this. To be fair to Tesla, this footage does remind us that, whatever is going on behind the scenes and no matter whether the door panels align properly or not, its electric drivetrains really are quite good.
