The Tesla Model S has received a key upgrade with an all-new 70D all-wheel-drive trim, which replaces the rear-wheel-drive 60 trim the entry level model of the vehicle. This upgrade adds $5,000 to the entry level Tesla S but increases performance right across the board.

The vehicle has a dual-motor setup that makes it more powerful than its predecessor, the 302-horsepower Model S 60. This effectively allows the vehicle to zoom from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 5.2 seconds. A 70 kWh battery pack offers a range of up to 386 km, with the car able to attain a top speed of around 225 km/h.

This vehicle is part of Tesla's attempt to diversify its Model S offerings to appeal to as varied a consumer base as possible.
