Tesla takes aim at upstarts with 390-mile range, 200 mph Model S Plaid

Tesla's longest-serving car gets its long-awaited refresh. On Thursday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to a stage in Fremont, California, to debut the production Model S Plaid. The Model S redefined our expectations of an electric car when it was first introduced. But it has remained little changed since 2016 as Tesla has focused on the cheaper but much higher volume Models 3 and Y. Five years is a long time in the car world, and others in the industry— notably Lucid and Mercedes-Benz—have the potential to change what was once the default answer to the question " what's the best, fanciest electric car I can buy?" Drive it a little slower and Tesla says you can go 390 miles (657 km). The car can DC fast-charge at 250 kW, which will add 187 miles (300 km) of range in 15 minutes. Musk did not share details about the battery pack beyond the fact that it's new; he was more effusive about the drive motor, which can run at 20,000 rpm. And there's also a more efficient heat pump that should significantly improve cold-weather range. The interior has had some handsome upgrades, with either wood or carbon-fiber trim available. The controversial multifunction yoke appears in place of a regular steering wheel, and the old portrait-oriented touchscreen is gone, replaced by a 17-inch, 2200x1300 touchscreen. The infotainment system supports wireless controllers and packs a lot of processing power—10 teraflops—which Musk says will provide a gaming experience with performance comparable to a Playstation 5. There's a 22-speaker audio system and a third 8-inch screen (after the infotainment system and the 12.3-inch main instrument display) for rear-seat passengers.
