It’s quite important to the future of sustainable energy. We’ve gotta show that an electric car is the best car, hands down.” The New Model S Plaid also boasts improved charging speeds with 183 miles range from a 15-minute fast charge. “ This is what I call limit-of-physics engineering ”, Elon added.

And the new speaker system will provide and home theatre-like experience in the Model S Plaid.
