2022 Tesla Model S Plaid Trims & Specs

The Plaid is the high-performance derivative of the Model S, and it will be the only one. Tesla announced that the Plaid+ won't make it to production, which is probably a good idea considering that the standard car already has 1,020 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. The power comes from a new tri-motor setup, with one motor up front and two at the rear. This electronic AWD layout helps it get to 60 mph in a staggering 1.99 seconds in a specific set of conditions. The claimed range is 348 miles on the current 21-inch alloys, but this will increase to 396 miles with a set of 19s. Tesla says a Supercharger unit will add 200 miles of range in 15 minutes.

The interior boasts many features, but the highlights include a 17-inch cinema screen and a smaller screen for rear passengers. The rear screen can be used for gaming. Standard safety items include active forward collision avoidance with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keep assist.

🚘What's the Price of the 2022 Tesla Model S Plaid?

The Tesla Model S Plaid has an MSRP of $129,990, excluding the destination charge of $1,200. California residents get a $1,500 clean fuel reward off the price. Add one of the more colorful exterior hues and the $12,000 Full Self-Driving option, and the price increases quickly. Still, we're talking about a car that can outsprint a Chiron, and it costs just ten percent of Bugatti's hypercar. Notably, Tesla is known for changing pricing on a whim, so the price you see here may be different in the near future. It's also worth noting that the Model S no longer qualifies for the federal tax rebates it once did.

Additional Packages

The only available package for the Model S is the Full Self-Driving Capability package for $12,000. This includes navigating on Autopilot, auto lane change, auto park, summon, traffic light and stop sign control, and a full self-driving computer. Autosteer on city streets will become available later, but Tesla has been promising this features for ages.

These features should not create the illusion that the Plaid is a self-driving car, even though Tesla calls it that. Tesla's disclaimer clearly states that "the currently enabled features require active driver supervision and do not make the vehicle autonomous."

🚗What 2022 Tesla Model S Plaid Model Should I Buy?

There's only one 2022 Tesla Model S Plaid model, and you might as well go the whole nine yards and order it with metallic paint, 21-inch alloy wheels, and the Full Self-Driving Package. You can expect to pay well over $140,000 for the Model S in this configuration. This Tesla Model S Plaid price is accurate at the time of writing, but as is always the case with Tesla, pricing could change on a whim.
