The Tesla Model S Plaid is officially here, since Tesla celebrated a delivery event for the new Model S on Thursday. The Model S Plaid is ready to take the performance of the Model S even higher with its 1,020 horsepower and 0-60 mph time of 2 seconds. It also has a top speed of 200 mph.
Tesla had planned an even more over the top Model S Plaid+ version, but Elon Musk tweeted a few days ago that it has been canceled. This means the Plaid is now the top version and it arrives with a $131,190 price tag.
The Plaid has three electric motors to give it 1,020 horsepower, while the now defunct Plaid+ had 1,100 horsepower. Tesla says that the Model S Plaid will have a driving range of 350 or 390 miles depending on which wheel and tire combination you choose. The Plaid+ had a 520-plus mile range.
