Ahead of the Model X launch at the end of the month, Tesla is still tuning the options available for the configuration of its all-electric SUV.  A roof-rack, which is popular for skiers and cyclists, isn’t an option for the Model X due to the vehicle’s Falcon Wing’ doors. We now learn through the online design studio, which is accessible to a select few reservation holders, that Tesla will be offering hitch accessories directly at the purchase of the Model X in order to get around the limitations.

The Model X is expected to be the first fully electric production vehicle to have towing capacity. Now buyers have 3 options for the rear configuration of the vehicle: 2″ towing package hitch with a 5,000 lbs capacity, 1.25″ accessory hitch (see picture below) or a streamlined diffuser plate.
