It’s a version with the yoke steering wheel.
One of the Tesla enthusiasts has found a brand new Tesla Model S Plaid at a parking lot, parked at EVgo fast-charging station (but not charging).
It’s probably the best video about the refreshed Model S right after the one that we saw in April.
In the brief walkthrough, we can see the yoke steering, new 21″ Arachnid Wheels and multiple other design and aerodynamic changes.
The first customer deliveries of the Tesla Model S Plaid are scheduled for June 3, at the Tesla Factory in Fremont, California.
It means that within a week we should get a tsunami of reports, videos and reviews of the new Tesla Model S that is expected to accelerate 0-60 mph in under 2 seconds (although, the number includes rollout, which is a controversial measure). In terms of range, it will be 400 miles (644 km) depending on the version (390 miles Plaid and 412 miles Long Range AWD).
