Musk Announces Tesla Model S Plaid Delivery Event Pushed Back

Model S not yet ready to wear plaid

  • Another delay for Plaid, but this one’s a short one

  • Canadian deliveries still expected in August


Tesla has changed the launch of the Model S Plaid once again. This time, CEO Elon Musk says that the car isn’t quite ready yet and will need one more week.

The start of deliveries on the Tesla Model S Plaid, which was first revealed in September of last year, was originally promised for February of 2021. It was then pushed back, with the Plaid+ model pushed even further, to mid-2022.

Musk announced on May 20th that the delivery event for the Plaid, where the first cars would be delivered to retail customers, was set for June 3rd. On the 29th, the CEO pushed it back to June 10th, saying that the model “needs one more week of tweak.”

We’re not sure exactly what Tesla can change in one week, and we’re pretty sure that the Big 3 couldn’t get board approval for a change in that short period of time, let alone complete testing to make sure that the model was ready for prime time.

The Model S Plaid is the first three-motor model from Tesla, expected to make more than 1,000 hp and deliver 0-100 km/h in 2.1 seconds. Tesla hasn’t produced a Model S or X in months as it worked up to this new refreshed model. For Canadian buyers looking to purchase a Model S, Tesla’s website still gives an estimate of August-September delivery for those placing an order now with a September-October estimate for Model S Long Range. Plaid+ is still set for mid 2022.
