It’s unclear why there’s a delay for the fastest Plaid+, which is has a Tri Motor All-Wheel Drive configuration like the Plaid, but has a faster 0-60 mph time of under 1.99 seconds. It could be demand-related or even due to components such as batteries, but we should find out soon, should CEO Elon Musk chime in on the matter.
Tesla says the Model S Plaid+ will have the quickest acceleration of any production car ever.
