Elon Musk declares launch date and time of world’s fastest car
Elon Musk on Tuesday said that the Model S Plaid delivery event at Fremont factory will be streamed live on June 10 at 7 pm (Pacific time). Tesla CEO on Monday said Tesla Inc’s longest-range Model S Plaid+ is cancelled, CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet. “Plaid is cancelled. No need, as Plaid is just so good,” Musk tweeted.
Model S Plaid, which is touted as Tesla’s highest-end model with a driving range of 520 miles, was unveiled at a battery event last year and Musk said it would adopt its next-generation 4680 battery cells. But production was pushed back to 2022 from the end of 2021.
According to the company’s website, the Model S Plaid can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 1.99 seconds and has a top speed of 200 miles per hour and an estimated range of 390 miles.
“Model S goes to Plaid speed this week,” he said in another tweet, without elaborating.
