AWD Would Be a Bonus in the Snow

AWD Would Be a Bonus in the Snow

There's been rumors for some time now that Tesla Motors is secretly working on an AWD version of the Model S.

Over in Europe, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed those rumors to be true.

As Musk stated, an AWD version of the Model S will be made available, perhaps when the Tesla Model X launches.

The Model X, as we all know, will come only in AWD.  There won't be a RWD version of the Model X offered.

When Tesla works out the difficulties associated with fitting AWD to the Model X, then it's natural that the automaker will offer it on the Model S since the two vehicle share platforms.

Model X production will start in low volumes by the end of 2014.  Look for volume production of the Model X to begin in April 2015.
