Production and deliveries of both models are ramping-up, but they are still lagging behind demand.
Tesla's CEO Elon Musk recently answered a question on Twitter, saying that the Tesla Model S Plaid probably will arrive in China "around March."
For new orders, the estimated delivery time is the end of 2022.
With the price tag of 1,059,990 CNY ($166,150), the Plaid is significantly more expensive than other Tesla cars - about three times higher than the Tesla Model 3 Performance or about four times higher than the Tesla Model 3 RWD (including subsidies).
Tesla's flagship will be also available in the Long Range AWD version, which starts at 889,990 CNY ($139,507).
The introduction of the refreshed Tesla Model S will be at a similar time as the all-new NIO ET7 flagship. It will be interesting to see which type of EVs Chinese customers prefer.
