Tesla introduced the Model S Plaid as part of its Battery Day presentation last September. It’s a step up from Tesla’s Ludicrous trim level, and can reach 0-60 mph in under two seconds, reaching top speeds of up to 200 mph, according to Musk. Current specs on Tesla’s website show the Plaid will have a range of 390-412 miles, with the upcoming Plaid Plus at a range of over 520 miles. Prices on Tesla’s website as of Saturday show the purchase price of the Model S Plaid starting at $ 119,990 and the Plaid Plus at $ 149,990. The Plaid Plus is listed as “available mid-2022”.
The Plaid debuted in September 2019 at the Laguna Seca circuit, where it completed the course in 1 minute and 36 seconds.
