Tesla Model S to gain AWD and larger battery packs

by SpeedLux

Tesla Motors has recently disclosed a few interesting details about the future of the Model S during a meeting in Amsterdam.

Last year in August we heard a rumor about an all-wheel drive Model S and now Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has announced that it will happen probably around the same time when the Model X will come out. Speaking of the Model X, volume production of the electric SUV is scheduled to start in April next year.

Aside from receiving an all-wheel drive layout, the Tesla Model S could also gain larger battery packs which will be helpful for those in need of a longer range. These new options are expected to be introduced as early as in 2015, around the same time when Tesla will start to sell a new seat option which will provide more comfort.

In related news, Musk said firmware 6.0 will be up and running in a few weeks and will bring real-time traffic information along with better suspension functionality such as on-command lowering and heightening options. Musk also confirmed that supercharger production is at full capacity and approximately five units are installed each week.
