Tesla unveiled its all-wheel drive versions of its Model S and as expected, the specs of the new models are quite impressive. According to the company, the Dual Motor All Wheel Drive options costs $4,000 and the first deliveries are expected in February 2015.

The entry-level 2015 Tesla Model S 60D equipped with a 60 kWh battery is priced at $69,900. For this amount of money you will get 376 hp motor power (188 hp front and rear), an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h). Meanwhile the maximum range is 225 miles (362 km) at 65 mph (104 km/h).

The 2015 Tesla Model S 85D gets an 85 kWh battery and 376 hp motor power (188 hp front and rear). This model can sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.2 seconds, while top speed is 155 mph or 250 km/h. The range offered by this model is 295 miles (474 km) at 65 mph (104 km/h).

Many of you folks will find the 2015 Tesla Model S P85D the most interesting addition to the lineup. The P85D arrives with a staggering 691 hp motor power (221 hp front and 470 hp rear), which enables an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds while top speed is 155 mph or 250 km/h. Tesla’s new P85D is priced from $93,400.

As expected, the addition of an electric motor at the front increased the vehicle’s weight by 291 lbs or 132 kg to a total of 4,936 lbs (2,239 kg). Still, the good news is that the vehicle is perfectly balanced and the weight is distributed 50:50.

Also very interesting is the introduction of semi-autonomous driving system called Autopilot, which uses camera in order to scan the road as well as a 360-degree sonar to detect traffic. Autopilot is offered in combination with the Tech Package and costs $4,250.

The Tech Package adds onboard maps and navigation for North America with free updates for 7 years, LED running lights, cornering lights and fog lamps, automatic keyless entry, lighted door handles, power tailgate, electrochromatic mirrors, power folding and heated side mirrors, GPS enabled Homelink and memory seats. In addition, Autopilot convenience features are available through software updates.
