Tesla Model S 70D

Apr 9, 2015

Category: Rides

As Tesla’s slow but steady entry into the mainstream continues, its most affordable model is still very much a luxury car. The newly released Model S 70D is $5,000 more than the outgoing entry model, but that said, it’s undeniably worth coveting.

Now with standard all-wheel drive and more battery range (the 70-kilowatt battery promises 240 miles of range per charge), the 70D also gets a power boost, now with 329 hp, a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds, and a top speed of 140 mph. The cost is $76,200, but factor in the tax credits – which vary significantly by state – and you’re looking at a sticker in the high-$60,000 range. You can’t forget too that each Model S also gives owners free over-the-air software updates that promises to add additional functionality, enhanced performance, and improved user experience over time.
