Tesla is pulling the Model S Plaid + to Elon Musk, the brand’s chief executive. Mask tweeted on Sunday, June 6, 2021:
While the upcoming Tesla Model S Plaid offers plenty of performance at its $ 121,190 price tag (which, in Tesla’s view, can reach 60 mph in less than 2.0 seconds and 200 mph). , its estimated driving distance is 130 miles less than the claimed range of $ 141,190 Plaid + (520 miles) with a full charge of 390 miles. Thus, we find that the real reason for the cancellation of the Plaid + is the result of limited pre-orders for the model, given its almost identical straight-line performance, the smaller Model S Plaid (Tesla initially said the Plaid + was much faster at 60 mph) Than Plaid).
As it turns out, the Plaid + Plaid offers a much larger driving range and acceleration performance than the Plaid, but the approximate range and acceleration performance of the cheaper three-engine Model C variant is nothing to be ridiculed. Arguably, Plaid +’s performance and driving range gains have never justified the trim’s price tag of $ 20,000 compared to the typical Model S Plaid.
Regardless, the Model S Plaid + is dead. As Tesla provides more information about the model in the coming days, we need to know more about the 1020-horsepower Model S Plaid, including a Plaid capture test on the Laguna Seca Raceway in Salinas, California. the rear spoiler of the detected trick. production tool as a standard or optional additional function. Currently, Tesla’s configuration for the Model S Plaid does not have this detail. Then again, the configurator only showcases the updated Model S’s own yoke-style steering wheel, although images of the revised Model S tests in nature (and hidden on Tesla’s own website) give Tesla a more ordinary look even a round steering wheel.
