While there's been some speculation by a minority of people here that Tesla would not produce an AWD version of the Model 3 SR (despite their info from the beginning saying that AWD would be available with either battery), Tesla reaffirmed it today:


So, for most of us, that can be taken as "Well, duh". But for some people, I'm sure that will be great news :)

My only hope is that it’s not forced or tethered to the first wave of the standard battery. I think they’ll receive big backlash if the $35k car doesn’t exist when standard range becomes available.

Agreed - even if their initial mix is 90% AWD, 10% RWD. Honestly, just for purely PR reasons, I think they should be making a nominal number of SRs each quarter, ASAP. :Þ But what do I know....
