Tesla introduced a new modification of the Model S Plaid with a record autonomy
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has unveiled a special modification of the Model S Plaid electric sedan. The features of the new product were the use of a new transmission and an additional engine, as well as significantly improved autonomy.
According to Elon Musk, the Model S Plaid is capable of driving from a fully charged battery up to 837 kilometers. At the same time, increasing the range from one charging cycle is not the only innovation that affected the Plaid model. The electric car will get three electric motors at once, which will contribute to an increase in power and speed dynamics.
The Tesla CEO noted that the power of the electric car is 1,100 horsepower. At the same time, the car is able to move at a maximum speed of 322 kilometers per hour and reach speeds from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 2 seconds. The dimensions of the electric car will also change: the placement of an additional motor lengthens the body of the Plaid. Moreover, Musk noted that in the future, the Plaid modification will be available in Model X crossovers.
The cost of the Tesla Model S Plaid is $139,990. Those wishing to pre-order the company offers to make a refundable deposit of $1000. The first deliveries of the Plaid modification are scheduled for late 2021.
