The first 2021 Tesla Model S Plaid deliveries will start on June 03 and the automaker will be holding an event at its Fremont car factory for the first handovers of these cars. CEO Elon Musk just announced this date and event via his Twitter account, he posted:
This will mark the delivery start of the 2021 Tesla Model S Long Range Dual-Motor version as well, the most affordable Model S with a price tag of $79,990, but it’s not the most exciting one despite its 412+ miles of range.
The Tri-Motor Model S Plaid and Plaid+ variants are the ones Elon Musk is talking about, the fastest production cars able to go from 0-60 mph in under 2 secs.
Tesla has listed the 0-60 mph numbers for the Model S Plaid variant as 1.99 secs and for the Plaid+ it is even less than that.
The range of Model S Plaid is 390 miles as listed on the company’s online car configurator and the price of this median variant in the lineup is $119,990.
The main advantage of the Model S Plaid+ is the extended range of the car, it offers 520+ miles of range on a full charge but comes at a price tag of $149,990.
Although Tesla has not radically redesigned the exterior of the 2021 Model S but has significantly revamped the interior of these new models.
However, a burning question is, will the Yoke steering wheel make it to the cars delivered to customers?, we have asked Elon Musk on Twitter and are still waiting for the answer. Perhaps we will have to wait for 3rd June for the final confirmation.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has announced that the Model S Plaid delivery event is now pushed to 10th June, “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,” he tweeted.
