After pulling off the covers from their latest electric car in April, Tesla have made available the S 70D to the local Australian market. The newcomer takes the reigns from the outgoing Model S P60, with uprated features such as a larger battery to produce an extended drive range of 50 kilometres and most notably, dual electric motors which now send power to all four wheels.
It will cost an extra $8,000 for the S 70D, but we think that’s money well spent for a brand new driving experience from the pioneering car maker. Performance is pegged at 5.4s for the 0-100km/h sprint with a top speed of 225km/h, whilst a single charge will squeeze out 440kms out of the bank. Lest we forget, the available 245kW is on tap from 0rpm for those looking to trial Tesla’s neck-breaking launches.
Also included in the new package is free super charging, auto-pilot hardware, blind spot navigation and a host of other useful features.
The local price tag will start from $110,508 plus on-road costs.
