    Tesla unveils new electric car for bad weather

    October 18, 2014

    Electric car giant Tesla on Thursday unveiled a new two-engine vehicle designed to perform in bad weather, featuring four-wheel drive and anti-collision technology. Performance in inclement conditions was considered one of the weak spots of Tesla’s existing models and with the new car, the company is trying to win over drivers in regions where the weather is not the nearly year-round sunshine that its California base enjoys.

    Founder Elon Musk said the new version of the Model S will feature the letter D for dual motor, one of which will be in the front and one in the back of the vehicle. Musk unveiled the new car at an event at Hawthorne airport in Los Angeles where Tesla has a design studio and engineering lab. Musk said the new car will come in three versions: 60D, 85D and the top of the line P85D, with progressively higher engine power and speed.


    The P85D will be delivered in North America beginning in December, while the 60D and 85D will be delivered starting in February. Deliveries in Europe and Asia will come in the months to follow, Tesla said

     

    Electric cars represent only 3.5% of sales in the US but that stake is growing. Tesla last month announced plans to build the world’s largest lithium-ion battery plant in Nevada, as part of an effort to bring down costs and boost popularity of electric vehicles.
