I stopped by the local Tesla store this weekend and was chatting with the Sales Advisor. I was asking him if the store has a RWD Model S that I could test drive in the winter, so I could get a feel for how a single motor Tesla does in the Philly winters. As we were discussing, he mentioned something that kinda blew my mind. Maybe the Model 3 will have a front wheel drive configuration. It never occurred to me but it's an interesting thought. The typical advantages of a FWD car don't really apply to a Tesla (the weight on an ICE on top of the drive wheels, cost savings for keeping the transmission and drive wheels near the ICE), but I thought it was an interesting possibility. It seems unlikely to me because of these details, but also because Elon seems to love the fact that Teslas are performance car-oriented. I think it's also counter-intuitive when considering the fact that Tesla seems to be aiming for easy to manufacture configurations, and they've never made a FWD configuration. I also think it goes against the grain of having the Model 3 compete with the BMW 3series which are not FWD. For me, I would not be interested in a FWD Tesla. I am likely getting a dual motor Tesla anyway, but it just doesn't feel right. Has this thought occurred to anyone else? Do you think it's a realistic possibility?
