AWD

AWD

I have ordered a SIG for years now in the UK.

Would ideally have anAWD.
Does anybody have an idea when that would become available?

There have been rumors that it would be available in the Model S sometime next year. Nobody from Tesla has ever said anything about it AFAIK, but it makes sense as they will be developing it for the Model X at about that time and they are based on the same platform. Don't expect a retrofit though, so you aren't likely to get it as a Signature owner.

Thanks. But cant you defer delivery once so I can buy some time hoping for AWD ?

The point of the signatures are they are the first off the line, so they are almost certain not to have it. You could probably downgrade and hold off for a while, but until Tesla actually announces that there will be an AWD Model S, it seems silly to wait for it.

I think maybe after they come out with model X then they will have it.

Depends how badly you want the option. I held off until the parking sensors were available, but I had good reason to suspect they were coming out soon. If you don't have a lot of snow or other inclement weather, I would just get the sig. I Would have loved that sig red!
