Tesla Model S Plaid Tesla was planned to start deliveries of its new Model S Plaid, a high-performance version of the company’s flagship electric sedan, on Thursday with a live stream event in Fremont, California
CEO Elon Musk has promised that the performance of Model S Plaid is better than before, its acceleration is about 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds.
The company’s website says the tri-motor, all-wheel-drive Model S Plaid also produces 1,020 horsepower, features a battery with an EPA-rated range of up to 390 miles, and can hit a top speed of 200 miles per hour if equipped with the proper wheels and tires. Those won’t be available until the fall, according to the fine print on the site.
The price of the Model S Plaid had increased by $10,000 to $129,990 — which compares with $79,990 for a long-range 2021 Model S, a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive version of the electric sedan boasting a battery range of 412 miles
