by 9SIX

“It’s not necessary because the Model S Plaid is already very good,” Tesla canceled the fastest and most expensive variant of its flagship sedan, the Model S Plaid Plus, as reported by CEO Elon Musk on Sunday. Earlier Tesla and Musk promised fans a 1,100-horsepower power plant, a cruising range of 840 km, acceleration from 0 to 96 km.

In March, Tesla raised the price of the Model S Plaid Plus by $ 10,000 to $ 150,000. The option to order the Model S Plaid Plus variant was removed from Tesla’s website at the end of May. The remaining high-end version of the Model S Plaid will cost about $ 119,900 and will have a battery with a range of 627 km and a capacity of 1020 hp. and acceleration from 0 to 96 km in 2 seconds. Musk had previously planned a ceremony to “deliver” the Model S Plaid to first customers on June 3. As the date approached, he postponed it until June 10, stating that the car still needed “one more week of refinement.” It is also reported that another reason for the cancellation of the Tesla Model S Plaid Plus was a shortage of chips that affected the entire automotive industry.
