Elon Musk talks about AWD Model S, bigger battery packs and Model X [video]

Tesla Model S is an impressive electric car and is enjoying increasing sales around the world.

The current model has a rear-wheel drive layout and even though Tesla says it can handle slippery roads just as well as an all-wheel drive vehicle, it clearly is not a true all-wheel drive vehicle.

Rumours about an AWD model have been circulating for a while and during a recent meeting with European Tesla owners in Amsterdam, CEO Elon Mush confirmed the company will build an all-wheel drive Model S.

The Model S with AWD will come out around the same time as company’s third model, the Model X, which is scheduled to go into volume production in April next year.

In related news Elon Muck also said that bigger battery pack options may arrive as soon as next year and the Version 6.0 software is coming very soon with real-time traffic information, increased suspension functionality, like lowering and heightening on command.

For more details take a look at the video below, where Elon also talks about home energy-storage unit, supercharger network, new giga-factory for batteries and much more.
