Elon Musk announced that Tesla will hold a delivery event for the first Model S Plaid on June 3 – confirming the first deliveries after a few delays.
It was back in January that Tesla introduced a refreshed version of the Model S and Model X, which brings a new powertrain, new interior, and updated exterior design to Tesla’s two flagship electric vehicles.
When launching the new vehicles, CEO Elon Musk said that deliveries should start within a few weeks – putting the first deliveries in February.
Unfortunately, the automaker couldn’t make that happen.
Three months later, there still hasn’t been any new delivery of Model S and Model X vehicles.
During the release of Tesla’s Q1 2021 financial results, the automaker did note that “the first deliveries of the new Model S should start very shortly,” and Musk said he believes it would happen the next month, which is now in May.
The CEO said that the delay had to do with making sure that the new battery pack in the updated Model S is going to be safe.
Last week, Electrek reported that Tesla sales representatives were confirming some delivery dates in early June for Model S buyers, which was a first indication that things were starting to move.
Now Musk even confirmed that Tesla will hold a delivery event for the first deliveries of the new Model S Plaid at the Fremont factory on June 3:
