Watch the Tesla Model S Plaid accelerate in 1.99s (test drive videos)



As we witnessed the Model S Plaid unveiling and delivery event last night, the real fun part began after Elon Musk’s presentation, yes, the test drives. The attendees, which included customers, members of the media, and social media influencers — experienced the Tesla Plaid acceleration at last and we have a bunch of insane test drive videos.

As we reported earlier, the Tesla Fremont factory test track was being prepared for testing the Model S Plaid acceleration and giving test rides to the visitors of the highly anticipated event.

Tesla setup a short tunnel on the test track with plaid pattern lighting to make the 0-60 mph run more interesting, I would call it the warp speed tunnel or plaid tunnel whichever you would like. This temporary plaid tunnel enhanced the most powerful launch of any production car made yet.

Some visitors to the event posted their Model S Plaid test drive videos on social media. The popular SpaceX observer and enthusiast Everyday Astronaut also felt the G-Force when he floored the acceleration pedal through the warp tunnel.

“I just went 0-60 MPH in about 2 seconds and 0-100 MPH in about 4 seconds with 4 people in the car. Tesla just broke the laws of physics, my friends. I’m sorry but that’s truly alien. Thanks for the fun Elon Musk,” he stated.

The host of Ride the Lightning podcast Ryan McCaffrey shared his experience of the Plaid acceleration from both the back and front seats “Model S Plaid launch arguably felt even more intense from the backseat when I got a second test ride. I just laughed; I couldn’t help it. It’s just too much fun,” he said.

My co-author at CleanTechnica, Johanna Crider was one of the lucky persons to be invited to the Model S Plaid delivery event. She also enjoyed the Plaid test drive with the Yoke steering wheel in the driver’s seat “Test ride in a Plaid Mode Model S. That was intense! Thanks again for the invite Elon Musk / Tesla,” she said.

Luckily she gave me the permission to post her video of this experience on my YouTube channel, so without further adieu, here it is, let’s watch the intensity of the Plaid acceleration.
