Elon Musk has confirmed rumors about a new power plant for Tesla models. It should be much more powerful than the past. Cars will develop power over 772 hp.

Elon Musk – the head of Tesla, said that the Model S electric car will be equipped with a completely new power plant. True, the change will not happen until next year. Installation should be much more powerful than the actual one that is installed on Model S Performance. He also noted that the electric car will cost less than its closest competitor – the recently introduced Porsche Taycan electric car.

 The chapter posts on Twitter featured the name Plaid. Like the name Ludicrous, the words are taken from the movie Cosmic Eggs, which is a parody of the legendary Star Wars trilogy.

 The new power plant consists immediately of three electric motors, the total power of which is more than 772 horsepower and 931 Nm of torque.

 It is also planned that the new “Plaid powertrain” installation will be received by Model X and Roadster cars. Adaptation for younger models is not planned. In a year, new versions of electric cars with an updated power plant will appear on the market. Their main competitor will be the new Porsche Taycan Turbo S electric car, under the hood of which there is a 761 horsepower engine and 1,050 Nm of torque.

 It is worth noting that more recently, the Tesla Model S with a three-engine power plant set an unofficial Laguna Seca track record. The electric car was the fastest in its class, having traveled a circle in 36.5 seconds.

Recall, most recently, Tesla proposed magnetic wipers with a neural network. The unique development will work according to the Maglev principle – the janitor will be pressed against the windshield, and moved with the help of electromagnets.
