Ceo Elon Musk Did not say whether he will be on stage, but he has been promoting this new model on Twitter, priced at 129,990 US dollars, while the long-life version of Model S is priced at 79,990 US dollars. The latest price of Model S Plaid is $10,000 higher than the previous price. It was shown on Tesla’s website a few days ago.
The launch of the Model S Plaid, which has been shown online, is facing delays and some controversy about the expected aircraft-style yoke steering wheel. Musk this week canceled another variant, Model S Plaid+, which has a driving range 33% higher than Model S Plaid and uses advanced battery technology called the 4680 battery.
Ed Kim, vice president of consulting firm AutoPacific, said: “Model S Plaid is definitely to help reduce the current migration of Tesla owners from Tesla.” “I think what we are seeing now is that Tesla can no longer be in a vacuum. Operation.”
He said that Model S Plaid is a low-volume, halo model designed to showcase automakers and cause a sensation around cars. Tesla needs to successfully launch new models such as Cybertruck and Semi trucks to expand its customer base. .
Musk called the Model S Plaid “the fastest car ever to accelerate.” He claims that this sports car accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in 1.99 seconds, with an estimated mileage of 390 miles.
Plaid’s body style has hardly changed, and yoke steering is available. It is also expected to enhance gaming performance with new games and more powerful processors.
The launch event was originally scheduled to take place last Thursday and was postponed to tonight.
