Tesla UPs base model to Awd "S 70d"

$75,000 Tesla Model S 70D: AWD, 240-Mile Range Is New Base Version - GreenGarReports
By John Voelcker
Apr 8, 2015

...This morning (Tesla) announced a brand-new version of the base model in its signature battery-electric luxury sedan lineup.

The Tesla Model S 70D is an all-wheel-drive Model S with a 70-kilowatt-hour battery pack, rated at 240 miles of range and priced at $75,000 before incentives...

...The new model comes standard with Supercharging DC fast-charging built in, as well as Tesla's navigation system and the hardware for Autopilot functions, which the company says it will enable in the future to provide self-driving capabilities under certain circumstances.

It also includes the newly revised Trip Planner software, which keeps the driver within battery range of Superchargers or other charging stations...

...In the Model S range, the new 70D version is only $5,000 more expensive than the outgoing base 60 model with a 60-kWh battery, which was rated at 208 miles of range but did not have the "D" dual-motor all-wheel-drive system.

The Tesla dual-motor system actually improves range over the same car with a single motor (and the same battery size) because with motors of two different outputs, it can send power to the motor that can operate more efficiently at any given moment.

The new 70D base model comes as a surprise, and it readjusts the lineup of Tesla Model S versions--three of which now have all-wheel drive standard...
