USA Today broke the Tesla news: new 85D models with 0-60 MPH in 3.2 seconds plus driver assist features


USA Today spilled the beans and broke the big Tesla news - new 85D (AWD) models with 0-60 MPH in 3.2 seconds and new driver assist features (as previously expected):


Tesla announced Thursday that the all-wheel-drive versions of its Model S electric car will manage a slight increase in range of about 10 miles on a charge vs. the rear-drive models — for a maximum of 275 miles — because of efficiencies designed into the new system. 
The AWD cars will carry the designation D, and the new top version of the Model S, the AWD P85D, will be among the fastest-accelerating sedans ever: 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds, according to Tesla.  
Tesla says the cars it's building now have 12 sensors each able to "see" 16 feet to enable the safety tech. Those can't be retrofitted to older models.
