0-60 mph in less than two seconds
As a sports car aficionado, it’s difficult not to salivate at the Tesla Model S Plaid’s acceleration. According to Elon Musk, no production car has ever been able to accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in less than two seconds.

Tesla held a celebration Friday night at its test track in Fremont, California, to hand over the first batch of Tesla Model S Plaid electric automobiles to its individual owners.

Plaid is the latest iteration of Tesla’s premium Model S sedan. It features a tri-motor design that goes above and beyond the company’s “Ludicrous” version in virtually every way.

The all-wheel drive car has a 390-mile EPA estimated range and a peak power output of 1,020 horsepower. When you consider the immediate torque provided by an electric motor, you obtain 0-60 mph times of 1.99 seconds, a quarter mile time of 9.23 seconds, and a peak speed of up to 200 mph (the peak speed is only possible with the correct wheels and tyres, which will not be available until fall 2021).

Musk emphasised the Plaid’s new battery pack technology, the carbon-sleeved rotors Tesla created for the drive motors, and the vehicle’s upgraded cooling system on stage. The ability to recharge has also been enhanced, with a 15-minute trip at a Supercharging station capable of providing 187 miles of range.

The Model S Plaid starts at $129,990 and is available for purchase on Tesla’s website.
