The Model S Plaid, according to Tesla’s website will start delivering in “late 2021”. It’s exciting to see one of these on the streets, as it generates excitement for what Tesla has in store for this year.
Earlier today, Tesla launched Model Y sales in China, aggressively-priced to compete against local electric vehicle startups such as NIO.
