Just a day before Tesla plans to hand over the first Model S Plaid cars to the owners, the automaker has increased the price of the vehicle by $10,000. Yes, now the purchase price of the Model S Plaid is $129,990. Some lucky customers got it reserved at the previous price point of $119,990.
Interestingly, while Tesla increased the price of Model S Plaid, the price of the Model X Plaid has not been changed. There must be a reason behind this move or Tesla is just asking the increased price because of the Model S Plaid’s 0-60 mph in 1.99s while the Model X acceleration stays at 2.5s.
Interestingly, the estimated delivery date for the United States orders is showing June. This means that Tesla has produced a good number of Model S/X to start rapid deliveries to US-based customers.
The delivery date for Canada is showing September-October, for Europe Q1 2022 and the RHD versions for the UK are estimated to be delivered at the end of 2022.
