Elon Musk, the boss of Tesla, announced on Twitter that the supercharged version of the Model S, the Plaid +, strong of 1,100 hp and expected at the end of the year, was finally abandoned.
It’s no. There will be no Tesla Model S Plaid + . Announced at the beginning of the year, on the occasion of the restyling of the Model S , the supercharged version of the American electric sedan will not finally see the light of day. It was Elon Musk , the boss of Tesla himself, who broke the news on his Twitter account .
The Plaid is also good according to Elon Musk
“The Plaid + is canceled. No need, since the Plaid is just as good, ”said the whimsical businessman.
A promising version
The Plaid +, a radical version of the Model S Plaid, had to develop more than 1,100 hp for a 0 to 100 km / h under 2.1 seconds, a top speed of 320 km / h and more than 840 km of autonomy ! Expected at the end of the year, it was initially promised at the price of 139,990 € , before its price rose to nearly 150,000 € during the month of March.
The Plaid remains the most efficient of the Model S
Failing to be able to drive it, it will therefore be necessary to be satisfied with its little sister, the Plaid. A more than adequate version since it is powered by three electric motors, develops a power of 1,020 hp (0 to 100 km / h in 2.1 seconds and 322 km / h at peak) and displays a range of 628 km. Its price on the French market: 119,990 €.
