Tesla Model S 70D First Look – Video

APR 22 2015 BY MIKE ANTHONY 6

Word was that the Tesla Motors store in OakBrook, Illinois had two of the newest versions of the Tesla Model S, the 70D (Dual-Motor, AWD).

Sure enough, they were there, so I swung by to check them out. Both had two of the newest paint options.

While at the Tesla store, I checked out a few of the other Model S EVs on hand. There were two P85Ds, an 85D & a customer’s (discontinued)┬áP85 RWD.

“Got my first peek at the latest version of the Tesla Model S, the 70D, along with two of the latest metallic paint option! For lack of a better word, AWESOME!!!

This new entry level 70D discontinues the 60 kWh version. D = Dual-Motor, AWD ; Standard, & provides 240 miles of range! Along with this new version, MANY features that were available options are now standard. Many things that were part of the Tech Package, Supercharging, Michelin Primacy tires, & again the Dual-Motor, AWD all now come standard.”

Saw my first Tesla up close and personal, parked at the golf course.
Good news for Tesla revealed with their battery business corporate customers, such as Walmart. Also Deutsche Bank upgrades them to a buy. Stock jumps almost 5% to $220 a share.

i don’t want to be picky here but the rear seats aren’t as they’ve always been. They still are newer with higher headrests and different ergonomics. Just not as great as the next gen seats. To get those you’d have to get the executive seating with only 2 seats in the second row.

I think they should offer the 70D platform with an 85kwh battery. The smaller motors should give a range of 290+ miles. There are some of us that don’t need or desire anything quicker than 7 or 8 seconds to 60mph.

The 70D has the same motors as the 85D, it just gets more miles per kWh because it is lighter, and that comes from the 70kwh pack. So if you put a 85 battery into the 70D you just get a 85D

Sorry, but the specs I looked at show the 70d to have smaller motors than the 85d..
