Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Sunday that the automaker’s Model S Plaid Plus was “canceled” because the underlying Plaid was “very good.”
Tesla has been teasing the Model S Plaid since 2019, and Musk said late last month that deliveries of the car would Which will have a top speed of 200 mph and range between 390 and 412 miles, it will be pushed to June 10 as needed. A week of further refinement.”
He also tweeted on Sunday that Plaid could go from zero to 60 mph in less than two seconds. (a statement he made earlier)
0 to 60 mph in 2 seconds, producing the fastest car ever. must feel to believe

The Plaid Plus is supposed to have more than 520 miles, but the specifications on Tesla’s website on Sunday are gray. Although the website still says “Plaid Plus will be available in mid 2022”.
The Plaid Model S made its debut at Laguna Seca in 2019, laps in 1 minute and 36 seconds. Tesla later showed off the Model S Plaid as part of its Battery Day presentation in September.
Even if Musk joked on Twitter about canceling Plaid Plus (maybe it boosts confidence in the regular Plaid version?), it seems unlikely. Because he has been busy with the Securities and Exchange Commission for past tweets about Tesla’s business.
