Tesla Motors has shelved plans to launch the Model S Plaid + version. The company’s CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter, “Grid + was canceled. No need, because the grid is too good.” In less than 2 seconds, Model S Plaid can get a new address, an infotainment display, etc.
Tesla Model S Plaid – Specifications
Musk believes that the performance and cruising range provided by Tesla Model S Plaid is good enough. To reiterate, all three engines in the Model S Plaid produce 1,006 horsepower and propel the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.99 seconds. According to CEO Elon Musk, Model S Plaid will also “use the right tires” to reach 200 mph (321 km/h). In fact, the company believes that Model S Plaid will become “the fastest production car ever.”
However, the recently released Rimac Nevera Hypercar has an acceleration time of 1.85 seconds from 0-100 km/h, which has already set a benchmark. Model S Plaid will use new battery technology to improve cruising range and efficiency. Tesla said that the exact technical details have not been confirmed, but the new thermal architecture can provide faster-charging speeds and provide greater power and durability under all conditions.
Tesla Model S Plaid – Features
The interior has also been overhauled, and people will immediately notice the new steering wheel design, which is clearly inspired by the steering wheel design used on airplanes. Tesla calls it a rodless bogie because it does not have an indicator rod. Other changes include a new 17-inch widescreen, which provides excellent responsiveness and can be tilted from left to right to allow passengers or drivers to enter as needed.
In addition, there is an 8.0-inch infotainment screen for rear-seat passengers. Completing the list of changes are software updates, including updates to an infotainment system with 10 teraflops of processing power. This is equivalent to today’s game console. For those who take music seriously, Tesla offers a 22-speaker, 960-watt audio system as standard equipment for Model S Plaid.
What is special about Tesla Model S Plaid +
Tesla Model S Plaid + should take car battery performance and benchmark range to a new level. It is said to produce 1,100 horsepower, which will further reduce the time from 0 to 100 km/h. It is said that the battery cruising range has also increased from 390 miles to 520 miles or 837 kilometers. This range is said to be more than any mass-produced electric car currently on sale.
