Tesla saw some impressive sales last year and now, the American carmaker wants to sell around 250,000 vehicles per year by 2020. During a meeting in Norway, Tesla boss Elon Musk also confirmed the fact that the company is seriously considering adding a four-wheel-drive version of the Model S saloon.
This AWD version of the Tesla Model S could go into production close to the launch of firm’s Model X SUV. "There's potential for an all-wheel-drive Model S, but it's not going to be happening for a few months. It'll be close to when an X happens - not soon, basically," Musk commented.
With the new model, Tesla aims to take on vehicles such as the Audi’s Quattro models, BMW’s xDrive of Mercedes-Benz’ 4Matic models. For those who don’t know, the Tesla Model S is currently the most efficient electric car found on the market, with a range of up to 300 miles (482 km) and a sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.7 seconds. The Tesla Model S is offered in rear-wheel-drive.
