Palo Alto’s Tesla Inc. launches high-end Model S ‘Plaid’ to counter Mercedes, Porsche

Tesla Inc., the Palo Alto, California-headquartered e-vehicle industry trailblazer, rolls out a high-performance edition of its Model S largely in a bid to fend off a raft of rivals likes of Mercedes, Porsche and Lucid Motors, all of which had pledged to deliver more high-end luxury e-vehicles in a near term.

On top of that, Tesla Inc executives were quoted as saying that the world’s largest automotive industry tycoon by market valuation would livestream the delivery of its first Model S ‘Plaid’ as early as on Friday, GMT 02.00, at its Fremont factory in California.

In tandem, according to a Tesla Inc email leaked in a tweet on Thursday, the Palo Alto-headquartered carmaker said, “Attendants are required to wear a mask and provide proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test result received within 72 hours prior to the event.

In factuality, Tesla Inc. had metamorphosized an emerging luxury e-vehicle market back in 2012s with the launch of its high-end Model S having had a longer range alongside a sleek design, however, the Californian automaker was reportedly facing off a fierce competition from a number of new pretenders.

Nevertheless, although the Tesla boss Elon Musk turned to Twitter to promote the new model, which would be tagged at $129,000 compared to a $79,990 long-range Model S, Musk had yet to confirm whether he would be on the stage.

However, voicing a submissive repugnance about Tesla’s new Model S ‘Plaid,’ an executive director at car information provider Edmunds, Jessica Caldwell said following the announcement, “The Model S has not been changing a lot in terms of looks over the past almost decade. I think Tesla has to offer consumers something more ... like new and fun things.
