Have you heard the saying, drive it like a rental car? It looks like it also applies to electric vehicles, with a rented Tesla Model X getting stuck in the sand on Bribie Island.
Despite running on highway tyres, the rented Tesla Model X surprisingly got further than most thought it would.
But, it all fell apart when the all-wheel drive vehicle became stuck. The recovery process was delicate at first, but ultimately ended in part of the front end being ripped off the car to successfully recover it.
Users in the “I got bogged at Bribie Island” Facebook group then shared images of it disabled in a nearby car park, presumably stuck awaiting a recovery tow.
The car’s registration is listed as a rental vehicle. It’s understood the driver had dog mode enabled, instead of sand mode.
