Plaid versions of the Model S and Model X remain unchanged.

As for why the price increase? There is still a global semiconductor shortage, and CEO Elon Musk has previously said costs of parts and supplies continue to go up. Tesla may be seeing higher demand for its Model S and Model X refresh, now that Plaid and Long Range versions of the sedan have been delivering to first customers, impressing many early adopters.

Back in June, Tesla increased the price of the Model S Plaid by $10,000 USD in the United States, while the Model Y has also continued to increase in price over the past year as well.
