The fastest electric car Tesla Model S Plaid entered the US market.

The Tesla Model S electric car has been produced since 2014. During this time, he practically did not change visually, but became noticeably more powerful and wiser. The next stage in the development of the hatchback in the form of the Plaid modification (translated as «frightening» in slang) became known about a year ago.

During this time, prototypes of the novelty were repeatedly caught on the most famous tracks of the planet, and the other day Elon Musk confirmed the launch of the model in the series.

You can pre-order on the manufacturer’s official website right now, leaving a refundable deposit of a thousand dollars. The price of the car itself in the States will be at least $ 139,900 (10.75 million rubles).

If the images on the company’s official website are true, then the engineers of the new modification managed to defeat the problem of battery overheating. The presence of such could be judged by the enlarged air intake in the front bumper.

However, those vehicles were tested in combat mode on a fairly long Nurburgring, and civilian modifications can simply be programmed to limit the continuous use of peak power.

Technical characteristics The novelty is driven by three electric motors, which together produce more than 1100 horsepower.

The company assures that the electric car accelerates from 0 to 96 km / h (60 mph) in less than 2 seconds and covers a quarter mile in less than 9 seconds.

The top speed is 200 mph (320 km / h). The capacity of the battery has not yet been announced. The power reserve is 840 km.

The characteristics of the Model S Plaid version were known in advance, but still cause a certain awe. The five-door for the first time will receive three electric motors (one in front, two in the back), guaranteeing an output of over 1115 hp. From a standstill to 100 km / h, such a modification jumps in less than two seconds, and a quarter mile will be covered in less than nine.

The maximum speed is limited at 322 km / h. The new traction battery will provide a range of 837 km. Of course, you have to choose: dynamics or distance.

There is some bad news too. Delivery times have shifted again and are now slated for late 2021.

By the way, Musk’s team was inspired by the 1987 movie Space Eggs, an American parody by Mel Brooks of George Lucas’s Star Wars saga, to name Plaid.

From there, the Ludicrous maximum thrust mode migrated to the current Model S versions. In addition to announcing the novelty, the head of the company promised the appearance in the next three years of a model priced at $ 25,000 (1.9 million rubles).

This will be possible thanks to the development and cost reduction of battery technologies. In addition, the entrepreneur announced plans to reach a production level of 20 million vehicles per year. By comparison, the Volkswagen Group produced $ 11 million last year.
