Tesla has a new base-level sedan and its packing a whole lot of power. The new, all-wheel drive Model S 70D features a second motor in the front of the vehicle which allows it to reach a top speed of 140mph and a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds thanks to its combined 514 horsepower. Another new addition is a larger, 70kWh battery which boosts the car’s range to an impressive 240 miles.
There are a number of smaller feature improvements as well. Access to Tesla’s Supercharging network is now standard (something that was an expensive option for the Model S 60), and Keyless Entry and Autopilot hardware are now included as well.
The new Tesla Model S 70D is starting at around $ 75,000 and is slightly more expensive than its predecessor but Tesla CEO Elon Musk believes you’ll agree that its a “slight price increase, but a huge value increase”.
