According to Reuters, Tesla will deliver the new Model S Plaid at its Fremont, California plant starting at 10 am on June 11, Beijing time. The starting price is $119,900, and the new Model S long-life version will start. The price is 79,900 US dollars.
In fact, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on May 20 that Tesla will hold a Model S Plaid delivery event on June 2nd, but Musk will again on May 29th. Said on Twitter:
The delivery date of Model S Plaid was postponed to June 10th, requiring another week of adjustments.
This car feels like a spaceship, I can’t describe its special meaning in words
Tesla demonstrated the Model S Plaid at the "Tesla Battery Day" last September, and Musk said it was "a step further" than the Ludicrous mode of the Tesla Model S. According to him, the Model S Plaid is "the fastest car in history." It only takes 1.99 seconds to accelerate from zero to 60 mph, and it only takes 9.247 seconds to complete a quarter mile.
Two months later, Model S Plaid made its debut at the Laguna Seca Circuit and ran this famous California circuit in just 1 minute and 36 seconds.
The new Model S adopts a more concise design and is equipped with a horizontal touch screen similar to Model 3 and Model Y. The difference is that Model S is still equipped with an LCD instrument panel behind the steering wheel.
When you see the interior of the new Model S for the first time, your attention will definitely be attracted by the three rectangular steering wheels. Its shape is very individual, a bit of a formula racing flavor. However, some analysts believe that the rectangular steering wheel has certain safety hazards in the actual driving process.
In addition, it can be seen from the figure that the new Model S cancels the original design of the gear. Musk has said that the new Model S will combine obstacles around the vehicle and map information to determine the direction of the vehicle and automatically switch gears.
Nevertheless, Tesla also retains manual gear shifting: you can switch gears in this huge central control screen.
Tesla said that thanks to the technology accumulated during the development of a new generation of powertrains and new heat pumps for Model Y, the power system of Model S Plaid is more stable and durable than the previous generation.
In addition, the performance of the car machine has also been improved. It will have the capability of 10 trillion floating-point operations per second. You can even open "Cyberpunk 2077" on this 17-inch screen.
But who will play dozens or even hundreds of hours of games in this Tesla?

Earlier, Musk also planned to release an "advanced version" Model S Plaid with 1,100 horsepower, which Tesla named Model S Plaid Plus.
Thanks to the built-in Tabless 4680 battery unit, in addition to having an acceleration of 100 kilometers within 2 seconds, its cruising range will exceed 520 miles. The new battery will also be used in Tesla's Cybertruck electric pickup and Semi electric truck.
But unfortunately, Musk tweeted on the 6th of this month that Model S Plaid Plus has been cancelled on the grounds that "Model S Plaid is good enough."
