Tesla considering an all-wheel-drive (AWD) version of the Model S

Article by Christian A., on February 13, 2014

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.
