Tesla Revealed Redesigned Model S And X With Airplane Yoke Steering and New Interiors

Tesla on Wednesday released its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2020 update, which contained the first details on the refreshed 2021 Model S and Model X with upgraded electric motors and interior.

2021 Model S - X

The new Plaid version of the Tesla Model S features three electric motors with a combined output of 1,020 HP, a $120,000 base price tag, and a promised driving range of 390 miles (627 km). Tesla claims a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in “1.99” seconds, as well as a top speed of no less than 200 mph (322 km/h), “with the right tires” .

Tesla is also going to offer a ‘Plaid+’ variant of the Model S, which offers a combined 1,100+ HP from its three electric motors, torque vectoring and “quickest 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile acceleration of any production ever”, with prices starting at $140,000. Tesla here claims a sub-2 second 0-60 time and a quarter-mile in under 9 seconds (!), as well as an insane driving range of 520 miles (837 km).

2021 Model S - X

Tesla is also offering a 1,020 HP Plaid version of the Model X, which in turn can hit 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds, cover the quarter-mile in 9.9 seconds,  and top out at 163 mph (262 km/h). The Model X Plaid comes with a driving range of 340 miles (547 km) and a price tag of $119,990.

Unlike the Model 3, the dashboard now features a big landscape-oriented 17-inch infotainment display in addition to a smaller 12,3-inch digital instrument cluster in front of the driver. A third 8-inch screen has been added on the rear of the center console facing the rear passengers, providing them with controls for the climate and infotainment systems.

Tesla also says that the two new central displays of the updated Model S and Model X feature a gaming computer with “up to 10 teraflops” of processing power, which is about the same as the latest-gen gaming consoles, enabling them to run games like “The Witcher 3” and “Cyberpunk” in addition to the already available arcade games via a wireless controller.

A premium 22-speaker audio system with active noise canceling, heated seats front and rear, tri-zone climate system with HEPA air filtration, and ultraviolet and infrared protection on every glass surface are just some of the features found in the new Tesla Model S and Model X.  The Model S also gets a new full-glass roof.

For these performance variants, the front fascia has been updated with what looks to be a new lower grille and side intakes that could direct airflow to cool the the brakes which have carbon-sleeved rotors. The Plaid models also have wider, flared fenders, likely to house wider tires and wheels for more grip with all the extra power.

The Model S Plaid and Model X Plaid start deliveries this spring while the Model S Plaid+ starts deliveries in late 2021.
