Tesla Model 3 Towing Capacity & Weight


At Tesla there was initially only the Tesla Model X with a trailer coupling, later followed The stunning Tesla Model 3 with up to 1000kg towing capacity. Electric cars from other manufacturers are also increasingly being able to tow but Tesla are really leading the way.

Tesla's large SUV Model X has been supplied with a trailer hitch as standard for a good two years. For the cheaper compact Tesla Model 3, a trailer hitch can optionally be ordered since May 2019 for all non-performance models.

Tesla's Model 3 is far from being a tow truck, but it is completely suitable for the domestic use and towing a caravan.

Pulling, hitching and maneuvering with a trailer works with the Tesla Model 3 in the same way as with any other car with a trailer hitch. With 493 Newton meters, the Model 3 Long Range Plus has more torque from a standing start than a VW Tiguan at optimum speed and can therefore compete with more traditional petrol or diesel tow cars. If you are looking for the towing capacity for a Tesla Model 3 then we're here to help. The towing capacity is a term used to describe the maximum weight of a trailer a Tesla Model 3 can tow. There may be certain models of Tesla Model 3 that cannot be used to tow a trailer. These will be highlighted with 'N KG' in the below list of Tesla Model 3 towing weights.
