Elon Musk Cancels Plaid+ Because the Tesla Model S Plaid is So Good
“Plaid+ is cancelled.”
Just recently, Elon Musk tweeted that the Tesla Model S Plaid is just so good. Hence, the Plaid+ is simply cancelled. Tesla has teased this vehicle since 2019. And just last month, Elon Musk stated that the car will be delivered around 10th June as it was undergoing another important tweak.
With a top speed of 200 mph and a range of 390 – 412 miles, the Tesla Model S Plaid has everyone’s attention. In a tweet on Sunday, Elon Musk reminded everyone that the new car could go to 0-60 mph in under 2 seconds and boasting that the Model S is the quickest production car. Tesla enthusiasts already knew this from earlier, though.
Elon Musk announces cancellation of the Tesla Model S Plaid Plus
0 to 60mph in under 2 secs. Quickest production car ever made of any kind. Has to be felt to be believed.

According to the previous hints, the range of Plaid+ would be around 520 miles. However, now the specifications have been greyed on the website. Though, interestingly, the website still hints at the release of the Plaid+ in mid-2022. But that might just get removed soon.
The Tesla Model S Plaid is indeed too good in its way. This car had its debut in 2019 at the Laguna Seca raceway. The car was able to cover the entire lap within 1 minute, 36 seconds. Then in September, the company flaunted the Model S Plaid yet again at the Battery Day presentation.
Tesla enthusiasts are wondering whether Elon Musk is joking about the Plaid+ being cancelled. Perhaps, it could be to boost the attention towards the Tesla Model S Plaid which is releasing soon. While it is certainly possible, it seems quite unlikely.
Both the Tesla Model S Plaid and the Long-Range variants will be released in Australia around the end of 2022. However, the cancellation of the Plaid+ means that Tesla might not be able to bag the title of the quickest production vehicle. The Model S Plaid will go from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.1 seconds (the Rimac Nevera can go from 0 to 100 km/h within 1.97 seconds.)
In other news, Tesla is also planning to open Tesla Restuarants. These hints come from the new trademark that the company recently filed under restaurant services.
