New entry-level Tesla Model S 70D revealed with all-wheel drive and 514bhp

Tesla has unveiled a new-entry level Model S 70D, which replaces the rear-wheel drive S 60.

As the D in the name suggests, the Model S 70D comes with a dual motor setup offering all-wheel drive and more power.

The outgoing S 60 was powered by a single motor producing 380bhp with the new model offering 514bhp from a dual-motor setup.

The new S 70D also comes with a new 70 kWh battery pack, offering a range up to 240 miles, which is a 32 miles more than in the S 60.

Thanks to a dual-motor setup and 514bhp, the S 70D goes from 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds on to a top speed of 140mph. In comparison the S 60 did it in 5.9 seconds and had a top speed of 120mph.

The Model S 70D also brings three new exterior paints to the table called Ocean Blue, Obsidian Black, and Warm Silver.

The 70D prices start at £54,500 after government grant, which is £4,220 more than the model it replaces, but buyers shouldn’t worry as the new entry level model offers a lot more value than the outgoing model.

Depending on the market, deliveries are scheduled to commence in May.
