Tesla ends production of Model S Plaid+
Elon Musk is of the opinion that you don’t need something new when you have something great.
The CEO of Tesla, ElonMusk, announced via Twitter that the electric automobile company decided to terminate the production process for its Model S Plaid+vehicle, which was meant to be a supercharged version of the company’s already existing Plaid car.
Elon Musk stated that the reason for the decision to stop the production of Plaid+ is that Plaid is good enough and doesn’t need an improved model.
Currently, Tesla claims that the Model S Plaid powertrain is able to go from 0 to 60mph in 1.99 seconds with a top speed of 200 miles per hour and an estimated range of 390 miles.
Tesla’s Plaid also produces 1,020 horsepower and is currently priced at $112,990.
The Model S Plaid+ was meant to be available for commercial use in 2022 and Tesla had opened up a pre-order option for the vehicle at a starting price of $150,000.
Suspicions about the discontinuation of the production of the car began amongst customers in May when Tesla stopped the pre-order process for it. It is believed that Tesla is currently working on a strategy to refund all those who pre-ordered the Model S Plaid+.
