It's also not the first time that Qantas used an electric vehicle to tow one of their planes.
The distance was enough for the Tesla to break a new Guiness World Record for the heaviest tow by an electric passenger vehicle. The two companies met on a Melbourne Airport taxiway for the challenge.
In terms of weight, the Model X P100D tips the scales at 2,509kg, while the plane is a hefty 24,700 kg.
Qantas and Tesla are also teaming up to better benefit their customers. The Tesla Model X P100D's electric motor generates an impressive 1,072Nm of torque.
The Model X has an advertised towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, but there's no question that Tesla's crossover SUV is much more powerful than that.
Cars towing airplanes isn't really out-of-the-box thinking.
Joining the league, the popular German brand, Porsche beat the record with its Cayenne S Diesel that pulled a 285-tonne Airbus A380 for 73 meters in 2017.
Qantas and Tesla are working together to bring clean transportation to the masses and sustain it for the future.
In the long-term, widespread use of electric vehicles could help airlines cut down on their emissions on the runway. A Tesla Model X was imported in India sometime back.
