When Tesla Motors released their all wheel drive, dual motor "D" options of the Tesla Model S in December of 2014, there was a lot of excitement. Much of the press revolved around the incredible speed of the new top model, the P85D, that clocked in a breathtaking 0-60MPH at 3.2 seconds.
However, this limited our options available (specifically in the frunk) for the floor mats we offered here on the site. Why? Although the "D" versions of the Model S presented a lot of advantages, one advantage of the rear wheel drive models was a bit of extra frunk space in the vehicle. See images below...

Good news: starting today, all of our aftermarket floor mat options on the site are available for both rear wheel drive and all wheel drive "D" Model S vehicle types. This means that you can order the smaller "D" frunk mats and/or a complete floor mat set for all wheel drive, dual motor "D" Model S vehicles or rear wheel drive vehicles... and, all of our floor mat options are available in both -- Rubbertite all-weather mats, Ultimats, and our premium Luxe mats as well. To check these out, choose your vehicle type below.
To be sure which vehicle you have, see descriptions below:
All Wheel Drive: The All Wheel Drive versions of the Tesla Model S are typically referred to as dual motor "D" vehicles. The tell-tale sign of a "D" is the more compact, smaller frunk (front trunk) space. The "D" frunk is smaller than rear wheel drive vehicles and does not have a hollowed out microwave-sized hole recessed into the back of the frunk. The "D" versions started shipping to customers in December 2014. If your car is referred to as a Tesla Model S 70D, 85D, or P85D... you've got all wheel drive.
Rear Wheel Drive: The Rear Wheel Drive versions of the Tesla Model S have only a single motor by the rear wheels. The tell-tale sign of a rear wheel drive vehicle is the larger frunk (front trunk) space. The rear wheel drive frunk has a hollowed out microwave-sized hole recessed into the back of the frunk. If your car is referred to as a Tesla Model S 60, 85, P85, or P85+... you've got rear wheel drive.
A reminder: we only sell these floor mats to customers in the U.S. and Canada only.
