The company intends to hand over the first Tesla Model S Plaid at the Tesla Factory in Fremont, California on June 3, 2021.
Elon Musk underlines that it will be the quickest production car ever sold, with a0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) time in under 2 seconds (although, the number includes rollout, which is a controversial measure). Regardless of the marketing gimmick, the Plaid version is expected to be the quickest accelerating car ever.
The less expensive Model S Long Range (AWD) is expected to follow shortly after the Plaid, while the top-of-the-line Plaid+ will be launched in 2022.
