The ultimate Tesla Model S has arrived. The Model S Plaid+ has an impressive 520-mile range, a 0-60 mph time of under two seconds, a top speed of over 200 mph, and an 8-second quarter-mile sprint capability. The EV automaker also claims the sedan is the fastest accelerating production car ever made. Total output is 1,020 horsepower.
It's also quite expensive. The Plaid+ powertrain option costs $139,990 before any state, or federal incentives are factored into the equation. The "regular" Tesla Model S Plaid begins at $119,000 and has a 390-mile rating on a single charge.
Like the rest of the 2021 Model S lineup, both the Plaid and Plaid+ receive modest exterior styling changes, most notably up front with the grille and redesigned hood for improved aerodynamics. The interior, however, is a dramatic departure from previous years. Instead of a conventional round steering wheel there's now a yoke-style wheel. The touchscreen is no longer directly integrated into the dashboard and is now a large screen similar to what's found on the smaller Model 3.
Orders for the entire 2021 Model S lineup are currently underway.
