    Introducing the Tesla Model S Plaid

    If the Tesla Model S was released in the United States in 2012, it took almost 10 years for the Plaid version to come. It was with the launch of the Porsche Taycan in 2019, the brand's first 100% electric model and competitor of the American sedan, that Elon Musk expressed his desire to launch a more powerful version of the Model S.

    Finally, in 2020, the boss of Tesla announced that the Plaid variant of the sedan will be available from 2021 in the United States, while it is still awaited on the Old Continent, like the renewed basic Model S.

    How does the Tesla Model S Plaid perform?

    Equipped with three electric motors with carbon-coated rotors, the Tesla Model S Plaid boasts an insane 1,020 horsepower. Enough to allow acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.1 seconds, while the maximum speed reaches 322 km / h. We then let you imagine the sensations of driving on board the electric sedan, especially since it holds the time record for electric vehicles on the Nürburgring circuit!

    On the autonomy side too, the performance is satisfactory since with a 95 kWh battery, you are able to travel up to 628 km on a single charge. Although this is an estimated value according to the American EPA cycle, the latter has the reputation of being more severe than the WLTP cycle.

    How much does the powerful electric sedan cost?

    Since changes to the Tesla Model S in 2021, it is no longer available to order in Europe, with the manufacturer preferring to focus on the US market, where sales are higher. Pre-orders remain open on the brand's website, but no delivery date has yet been communicated. On the other side of the Atlantic, they are expected between June and August 2022 for the Plaid version and between November 2022 and February 2023 for the Model S Dual Motor.

    Regarding prices, the Tesla Model S Plaid should, at a minimum, be exchanged for 138,990 euros. Certainly, the price is high, but given the performance, the Model S Plaid remains very competitive.

    What are the owners saying?

    If it is desired on our roads, some lucky people are already enjoying the sedan in its Plaid version, which then allows us to know the positive and negative points of this model.

    On board, the completely redesigned presentation is more luxurious and qualitative, like the new central touch screen. Although the performance is impressive, the Tesla Model S Plaid gives pride of place to habitability and is very spacious for the whole family and their belongings, the loading volume reaching 800 liters, for example!

    Obviously, the performance of the Model S Plaid is praised, but some consider it too dangerous, in particular, because of its lack of brakes compared to the accelerations it is capable of producing. Not to mention the fact that the electric sedan weighs no less than 2,162 kg and that when braking it is felt immediately. Finally, poor soundproofing, especially at high speeds, is often pointed out by Tesla Model S Plaid owners.

    The main thing to remember
    Not yet available on the Old Continent, the electric car of Elon Musk's brand is already making a lot of noise, in particular of its astounding performance for a clean model. However, it has been seen that the Tesla Model S Plaid is not exempt from flaws as reported by the first owners.

    And you, do you want to get behind the wheel of this powerful electric vehicle?
