It became known that on June 3 at the Tesla factory in Frimont, California, the event was held on the launch of the flagship electric sedan model S Plaid. The CEO of Tesla Ilon Mask (Elon Musk) was written about this in his account on Twitter, adding that it would be the “fastest serial car.”
According to available data, the MODEL S PLAID premium electric vehicle is able to accelerate up to 60 mph (97 km / h) in less than 2 seconds, and its maximum speed is 320 km / h. Most likely, it is over time to overclock the new Tasla and will be the fastest serial car. The current record here belongs to Porsche 918 Spyder with overclocking time up to 60 mph in 2.1 seconds.
TESLA Model S Plaid has a battery pack, which provides a stroke reserve more than 830 km. Tesla already accepts pre-orders for the purchase of Model S Plaid, the cost of which starts from $ 139,990. Power installation of the PLAID with three electric motors is part of a more large-scale update of Model S and Model X, which received an updated exterior design and a simpler interior. This is the first substantial update for these electric vehicles from the time of launch in 2012 and 2015, respectively.

It is worth noting that despite the announcement of the MODEL S PLAID launch date, the deadlines for the start of supplying electric vehicles to clients for pre-orders were not announced. According to reports, TESLA customers who issued an order for the purchase of Model S Plaid in January were reported that the delivery will begin in April, but later the deadlines were shifted. It is possible that Tesla is preparing to once again move the start of supply of premium electric vehicles. The source says that the shipments of Model S Plaid should begin in August-September of this year, while MODEL X PLAID buyers will have to wait until January-February 2022.
