Two months ago Tesla announced that an all-wheel drive variant of the Model S is currently in production. And today is the day, which the company introduces the Model S 70D. Yes, this is the all-wheel drive electric car, which in addition has spectacular performance figures. Precisely, the acceleration sprint from 0 to 60 mph is covered in just 5.2 seconds. And it is very hard to believe that this is achieved only via electricity.

The range of the Model S 70D is 250 miles, when it is driven under 65 mph. Moreover the vehicle will also boast a wide range of features included even in the base price variant. Well, speaking of price tag, the company has also officially announced that it will begin at $75 000 USD.

We should definitely think about this amount of money, which seems to be very high at first glance. However, we should also consider that the vehicle has a lot of benefits over the internal combustion engines.

Due to its independently operational front and rear motors, the car is capable of a lot of fuel savings, that are actually estimated at $20 000 USD for five years. And this significantly lowers the price, when one thinks in perspective.

Next to the two electric motors, the 70D is fitted with Supercharging in order to allow free long-distance travel. Some of the other cool features included are the autopilot hardware and navigation as well as blind spot detection.

In addition to this, like any other Model S, the new AWD one will get the free over-the-air updates, which will help improve car's functionality and driving experience in long term. At last, Tesla has added three new colors to the Model S range: Obsidian Black, Warm Silver and Ocean Blue.
