Tesla unveiled the Model S Plaid in the US last September, powered by three motors that can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 1.99 seconds, which Musk called the fastest production car ever built.
In early June, Tesla began deliveries of the model in the US and canceled the more capable Plaid + model.
In September, the Model S Plaid broke the record for the fastest electric car lap of the Nürburgring with a time of 7:30.9. The previous record-holder was 7:42.3 for Porsche's Taycan Turbo.
