|Tesla Motors unveiled a new dual motor Tesla's Model S. The new vehicle will be more powerful and have all-wheel drive. Sitting at the top of the range is the new P85D which is their fastest model packing a whopping 691 hp and a supercar-caliber 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds.
The vehicle has three power settings, normal, sport, and insane.
The Palo Alto-based automaker also introduced a suite of driver assistance technologies called “Autopilot.” The technologies are designed to recognize nearby vehicles and the surrounding environment using radar cruise control, a digital camera with optical recognition, 360° ultrasonic sonar, and GPS input.
Autopilot will keep the car in its lane on a highway, automatically brake in an emergency, park in a garage, and change lanes by itself on the highway. All but the last feature are available from other automakers as well.
Tesla is offering the dual-motor option on all Model S variants. It will cost $4,000 more on the Model S 60 and Model S 80, and $14,600 more on the high-performance P85, putting the P85D at $120,700.
