Tonight, Tesla hosted the unveiling of the new Model S Plaid and delivered the first few cars at its Fremont factory.
Here we will follow all the news coming out of the event.
While Tesla describes today’s work as a “handover,” we expect more than just handing over the keys.
When Tesla introduced the new Model S and Model X in January It’s in the middle of the quarterly financial release. And the automaker has never held any press conferences or press conferences about new cars.
Elon Musk said Tesla will hold a conference call to explain more details about the updated Model S and Model X next week. But this never happened.
While we already know a lot about the new car, we expect Tesla to be fully presenting the big changes in both of its flagship car programs.
As we reported earlier, Tesla has developed a brand new electric motor under the “Palladium” program and brings several improvements to all powertrain technology with the new Model S.
This new powertrain allows for a three-motor configuration that delivers some of the record-breaking performance Tesla had to boast during the race.
The automaker is expected to reveal more details about the new steering wheel and interior.
The new interior also needs a new user interface and Tesla is expected to announce a new v11 software update that drives the new interface.
Of course, Tesla will deliver the first few Model S Plaid cars to customers during the event. Some attendees were told that about 50 deliveries would be made during the event. But there will be more to come soon after.
Participants are expected to test ride the new Model S Plaid on a factory test track to experience a whole new level of performance.
You can watch the presentation live on Tesla’s website from 8:30 p.m. PT (11:30 p.m. ET).
