Over the weekend, Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted out that the new upcoming Tesla Model S Plaid will be delayed by around a week. The new Plaid version of the Model S is the most powerful version to date with 1020bhp, a top speed of 200mph and around 520 miles of range, with the upcoming Plaid Plus version.
Elon said the Plaid would need around one week more of work before it can be delivered to customers. The car has been in testing since 2019 and was revealed in September 2020 to the public.
The Plaid Plus model will go on sale in 2022, with the standard Plaid model going on sale on 10th June with prices starting at £110,980 UK / $119.990 US. The Plus model is at £139,980 UK and $149,990 US.
Model S Plaid delivery pushed to June 10. Needs one more week of tweak.
This car feels like a spaceship. Words cannot describe the limbic resonance.
