"Tesla Model S Plaid will be available for delivery on June 3rd at our California factory," Musk wrote.
The base Plaid model is expected to be able to easily reach a top speed of 322 kilometers per hour at the time of its release, and the plus version will be even faster. While previous Model S cars only had two electric motors, the Plaid and Plaid Plus have three.
The Tesla Model S Plaid reportedly has a 95 kWh battery that Tesla claims will provide a range of up to 390 miles.
Tesla promises to further improve the dynamic characteristics of its cars - for the second generation Roadster, which will be even faster than the Tesla Model S Plaid +, Elon Musk announced the use of jet nozzles, which would give the car additional acceleration using jets of compressed air, and also help would go into sharp turns.
It was previously planned that the Tesla Model S Plaid will go on sale in August or September 2021 at a price of $ 114,490. The S Plaid Plus will not go on sale until mid-2022 and will cost significantly more starting at $ 144,490.
The Model S Plaid is available for purchase now with a $ 100 non-refundable order. The Model S Plaid Plus can only be reserved right now, but you will need to pay a $ 1,000 security deposit to guarantee delivery upon assembly.
