Tesla’s Palladium project would include a new Model S, Model X


Along with the Roadrunner project, which involves batteries, Tesla is said to have another secret project in the works and it’s called Palladium and the focus is on a new Model S and a new Model X.The goal of the Roadrunner project is better batteries to grow at a lower cost and it is surely Tesla’s most important project at the moment. However, a refresh or a complete overhaul of at least the Model S was also long overdue. The Model S is a bit dated and hasn’t received a complete overhaul since its debut in 2012.

Meanwhile, the Tesla Model X is a bit cooler. it hit the scene at the end of 2015, so maybe it doesn’t need a complete makeover as much as the Model S, but rumors have it that Project Palladium is focused on overhauling these two. Teslas.

There is very little information about the Palladium Project, other than the “sources”, confirming its existence and purpose. The project is taking place both at Fremont and at the Nevada gigafactory. Tesla is said to be revising both sites for new versions of the Model S and Model X.

There seems to be a connection to the Tesla Model S Plaid which has often been seen riding the Nurburgring as well. Rumors suggest that the powertrain found in the Plaid Model S could form the basis of the new and / or updated Model S and Model X.

Other rumors hint at new bodies for both vehicles, so it seems rumors are floating around everywhere, but it seems certain that Project Palladium exists. However, the target is not confirmed and we do not know any official details.

We’ll be keeping an eye on this developing story to see how it all plays out. In the meantime, check out the Tesla Model S Plaid in the gallery below:
