    Considering that Tesla has the X as the official "towing capable" Tesla and the 3 is smaller than the S, I would guess that it would not officially support towing anything in the 3. At least not in the US or EU. However, towing is usually a local regulation so. Who knows what would be allowed in your market.

        Elon confirmed there will be a towing hitch option for Model 3. Maybe only for bikes but there's always a slight chance it will be class 2 capable.

          Elon promised a towing hitch, NOT an accessory hitch (though we might get that as well). So, you should be able to tow with your model ≡.

          Thank you kindly.

            I'll be adding the hitch for sure. I use a small trailer to pick up drywall and plywood, etc.. and this is in a tiny RWD sport car. I'm sure the 3 will do just fine if you respect the rated weights (which we probably won't find out until late production)
