Model s plaid+ greyed out

Tesla appears to be limiting new sales of its Model S Plaid+, as the option has been greyed out on the company’s American website (via @SawyerMerritt).

“I’ve been told by a source that Model S Plaid+ deliveries are estimated to begin in Mid-2022, not end of 2021,” said Merritt on late Thursday night. “Also, Tesla stopped taking orders for the new Plaid+ due to high demand. This stoppage is temporary. Also, I’ve confirmed the new S will deliver with the yoke,” claimed Merritt, known to have reliable sources in the past.

Model S Plaid delivery dates now show June. Earlier today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced a Model S Plaid delivery event will be held on June 3, 2021.
