Elon Musk has officially unveiled the new dual-motor equipped P85D, which is an all-wheel drive (AWD) version of its popular Model S. The top-of-the-line vehicle has a measured 0-60 time of just 3.2 seconds, which should have performance fans pleased.

Not only has Tesla provided an all-wheel drive Model S, but the new vehicle has driver assist features, too. We have lane keeping and self-adjusting cruise control, which are similar features to what Mercedes and Lexus have been doing lately, with the new Tesla vehicles capable of reading speed limit signs, and adjusting the speed of the Model S accordingly. Continuing with the driver assist features, the new vehicle can even change lanes for you, all you have to do is activate the turn signal.

All of this is powered by 12 sensors that allow the AWD Model S to see around the car, but there's no details on how much these additions to the car will cost.
