I just watched the reveal online...no mention of a dual drive option. No D, no deposit.
in one of the drive videos the driver refers to an AWD and rear wheel drive model, so Im better a D is in the picture.
OK, thanks for the heads up. It would be great to see some sort of confirmation on this from TM
As Seesaw mentioned, one of the drive videos, the driver mentions that car is a dual motor. He's a Tesla employee (believe he identified himself as an engineer), and that would be all the confirmation I would need. I'm 100% certain there will be a dual motor option on the 3.
there were dual motors in the graphics...
Base model will be rear wheel drive and bare boned. Lots of options including battery size, dual motors, etc.
Actually, seesaw mentioned that one of the drivers refers to an AWD model. Not that the car actually IS an AWD model. If what you're saying is in fact true, that they were driving an AWD model...then yes, that's confirmation enough. That's not what Seesaw said in his post, though.
Over the years of Tesla ownership I have heard a lot of things mentioned that have never been confirmed! Sounds like there is some video that I haven't seen that makes it clear, though.
So we will call it a P390D ?
The driver clearly stated there would be dual motors as an option. And the graphic in the presentation showed dual motors.
I don't know what driver you are referring to. But if that is the case, that is great.
this is the video
Awesome, thank you. He didn't want to give too much info, but was certainly gave a definitive answer to the dual motor question.
I watched the Jalopnik Periscope video of the drive and the driver said, "This is a dual motor car" before mentioning that is an option. I'm not sure where to find that video anymore, but I think it used to be part of this post:
I watched it on their Facebook page this morning - he also interviewed Tesla's president too.
I cannot find any picture of the 'skateboard' underneath platform,
but during Elon's presentation you can really see the two motors and the battery between:
Tesla 3 dual motor platform
Note: I think that the taller engine on the right is the front engine.
One of the vehicles was a dual motor vehicle. The engineer (or whoever he is) got asked if this is the acceleration of the base model to which he replies that this is a dual motor model but the basic version will be RWD only. Still below 6 seconds 0-60 though.
The base model will be RWD. Options available fro AWD, and from the video I watched the test drive was in an AWD version.
