Tonight, Tesla is holding an event to launch the new Model S Plaid and deliver the first few cars to its Fremont factory.
Here we will follow all the news coming out of the event.
While Tesla described today’s event as a “delivery event,” we expect little more than just handing over the keys.
When Tesla unveiled the new Model S and Model X in January, it was in the middle of the quarterly financial release, and the carmaker never held a press conference or even issued a press release about the new vehicles.
Elon Musk said Tesla would hold a conference call to explain in more detail the updated versions of the Model S and Model X next week, but it never happened.
Although we already know a lot about the new vehicles, we expect Tesla to give a full presentation on the extensive changes that lie ahead in its two leading vehicle programs.
As previously reported, Tesla has developed brand new electric motors as part of its Palladium program and made several improvements to its entire propulsion technology with the new Model S.
This new drivetrain allows for a three-engine configuration that delivers some record-breaking performance that Tesla is sure to boast about during the event.
The carmaker is also expected to release more details about its new steering wheel and interior.
The new interior also required a new user interface, and Tesla is expected to announce its new v11 software update, which drives the new interface.
Of course, Tesla will also deliver the first few Model S Plaid cars to customers during the event. Some attendees were told that about 50 deliveries would be made during the event, but more would happen soon.
Participants are expected to take test walks in the new Model S Plaid on the factory test track to experience the new level of performance.
You can watch the live presentation on the Tesla website from 8:30 p.m. PT (11:30 p.m. ET).
Here we will share some publications based on the most important pieces of information we learn about the event:
