Model Y trailer hitch

Model Y trailer hitch

Franz has indicated that the Model Y (and Model 3) will have a trailer hitch option but so far the Model Y does not show any details on it. It must be costing some orders from people who want a small SUV to have a towing capacity so what's the hold up?

Hopefully it will be standard like the MX

Ask Franz.

and hopefully, the trailer hitch will be OK to add to an existing Model 3...
as opposed to "only available on new orders".

Huge demand for this in Colorado as many people have hitch mounted bike racks. I bought the eco hitch for my model 3, but would have loved an OEM option.

How about a rear bike rack without a hitch?
Towing is pretty terrible with electric cars.

on my MX, I did not notice any range loss using my hitch rack and and 2 MTBs. Miht be different with the M3/MY since they are lower profile vehicles and the rack may cause more turbulence.
