Elon Musk confirms new Model 3 options with AWD
Featuring AWD with dual motors
Although he certainly hit a nerve or two during the Q1 2018 financial report call, Elon Musk has now confirmed two new, and more expensive Model 3 models, featuring AWD and dual motors, the Model 3 Performance and the Model 3 with AWD option.
Despite the fact that the company is still struggling to hit its production goals for Model 3 car, this did not stop the Twitter-loving co-founder, CEO, and product architect of Tesla, Elon Musk to announce a completely two new models, including a high-end Model 3 Performance with a price of US $78k.
The first version is an all-wheel drive (AWD) version of the Model 3, which will feature a second motor on the rear wheels, adds US $5k to the price, can reach a 0-60MPH in 4.5 seconds, has a top speed of 140MPH and still retains the 310-mile range. Most importantly, one motor is optimized for power and one for range, with Musk confirming that the car will drive fine if one motor breaks down, ensuring that you won't be stuck on the side of the road.
