Tesla & Caravan

The towing limit is exceeded by 20 kg!
It is not allowed to drive with this Caravan.
Make sure the towing limit is correct.

The conclusion is, if the Tesla Model 3 and the Caravan as an example with a laden weight of 930 kg, would not be legally too heavy that it would be a perfect match.

Number of useful calculations

The towing limit is exceeded by 20 kg! It is not allowed to drive with this Caravan. Make sure the towing limit is correct. For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while actually legally overweight.

Verdict as the caravan would not be legaly too heavy

The Tesla Model 3 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 930 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear, by giving the engine just a bit of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 7500 rpm. In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 122 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 37%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 36% not to drive.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
