After teasing fans over the past few years, Tesla will take the Model S beyond Ludicrous Mode tonight when it unveils an even faster version of the sedan. The Model S Plaid promises owners that they will have the “Fastest Accelerating Car Today”, equipped with three electric motors that will get the car to a top speed of 200 MPH with the correct tires and wheels.
What we won’t see tonight at the Model S Plaid Delivery Event is a Plaid + version that was supposed to offer extra reach after Elon Musk said it was canceled. According to the management, the plaid is so good that there is “no need” for another version. However, as competition in the EV market continues to multiply and exciting new models like the Cybertruck and Roadster – the car that was supposed to debut the “plaid” EV performance – are still in development, Tesla could certainly get the stamp of approval better halo use car to promote
If you’ve heard enough, the Model S Plaid can be ordered from Tesla’s website with a delivery estimate in June. As Autoblog notes, its price has increased $ 10,000 in the past few days, reaching $ 129,990, or roughly $ 50,000 more than a standard Model S sedan. For those who need more persuasion or just want to see, what the fast EV looks like in motion is scheduled to streamed a delivery event for the plaid tonight at 11:15 p.m. ET.
To update: The countdown has ended and a YouTube stream (embedded above) indicates that things should start around 11:30 PM.
