Towing Equipment -inc: Trailer Sway Control Option

I have not yer taken delivery of my 2019 P360 HSE R-Dynamic Velar but when I decode the VIN it lists "Towing Equipment -inc: Trailer Sway Control" as being fitted to the car.



Does anyone know exactly what this means ? (i.e. does it already have a factory tow hitch fitted behind the bumper)?


Thanks

It does sound like it might. When you read the iGuide manual, it explains a lot of the towing features that can be fitted. My impression is that a lot of the extra features are built into the car regardless, and then "unlocked" in the firmware when purchased. I had a hitch fitted at the dealership in November and the the infotainment system appeared to have been rebooted.

I'm sure you are correct when you say that towing (and other) equipment is partially fitted as standard and then disabled or connectors left blank etc.



So does every Velar VIN decode to list "Towing Equipment -inc: Trailer Sway Control" as being fitted to the car. In other words, it's fitted as standard to await a tow hitch being possibly installed at a later date.



If it is not listed against every VIN, then what is it they are fitting and why (if it's not actually a tow bar behind the bumper)?


My Land rover Dealer cannot answer this question.
