Watch Tesla Model S Plaid’s Amazing Acceleration In These Videos

Tesla Model S Plaid deliveries are now officially underway and as the name of the car indicates, its main feature is ultra-quick acceleration. Also, Tesla’s Elon Musk started the event with his own Plaid test drive at the track.

Here we will take a look at the first videos of acceleration that was never before achieved in a production car.

The Model S can do:

  • 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) in 1.99 seconds with rollout
  • 1/4 Mile 9.23@155 mph trap speed

All that is thanks to the new three-motor, all-wheel-drive system and new battery pack, ready to provide up to about 760 kW of power.

According to the first reactions from the event, Tesla enthusiasts and customers are amazed and some of them already noticed that it’s not easy to handle.
