I've been trying to understand why Tesla is only offering the drivetrain in a All wheel or Rear wheel configuration, and not also (or instead) in a Front Wheel drive configuration. If anyone can provide me with some reasonable explanation, I'd certainly like to hear it. They're obviously able to squeeze the motor in the front along with the steering mechanism, so technology can't be the reason. I suppose they may not like the idea of leaving an open cavity in the rear for collision crunch zones, but that should be able to be overcome with some reinforcement pieces. OK, Front wheel drive, immediately adjacent to the steering may be a bit more expensive than a rear wheel drive, but I can't imagine it's TOO pricey. Given snow and other road hazards, I can't be the only person who would rather have a Front Wheel Drive Tesla over a Rear Wheel Drive Tesla. Can anyone provide some better insight?
