The Yoke Steering Wheel and Horizontal Screen
We previously saw the yoke steering wheel in a Tesla Model S. What we didn’t get at that time was a full 360-degree view. But we have that now. I love the yoke steering wheel. To me, it’s like driving a spaceship instead of a car.
The long horizontal screen is also a nice touch for the Tesla Model S Plaid. I have seen many vertical horizontal screens in Tesla’s, but the company seems to be moving toward horizontal as a standard. The inside of the car looks slick and there doesn’t appear to be any panel gap issues that I noticed.
Blended door handles and Arachnid Wheels with New Rims
The door handles are the same color as the paint of the car, adding to a more blended look for the vehicle. This is a nice touch and makes the car much cleaner and leaner looking.
The arachnid wheels and new rims are stunning. They look very structurally strong and there is a Tesla logo in the middle of them.
Carbon Fiber Spoiler and Plaid Text
The carbon fiber spoiler on top of the back of the car and the carbon fiber lip at the back bottom of the car are a nice addition and add to the futuristic look of the car.
The PLAID in metal text on the back of the car is also a nice touch, adding to Tesla’s branding for this car.
A Secret About the License Plate
On the license plate, the number 63277 can be seen. This has been seen on many pre-delivered Tesla vehicles and many are curious what it means. It is the manufacturer ID assigned to Tesla.
Tesla likely had to apply for and get a license as a motor vehicle manufacturer from California. With that you can request a certain number of manufacturer plates. Their purpose for this is to drive manufacturer-owned vehicles on public roads without having to register the vehicle like normal with the state DMV.
You'll have to wait another week before the Tesla Model S Plaid is delivered. Elon Musk tweeted that the Tesla Model S Plaid needs tweaks before the delivery event, which has been pushed to June 10, 2021, instead of June 3, 2021.
The Tesla Model S Plaid is a clean and slick looking car. It's one of the many reasons Tesla as a company is going to the moon. Have you spotted any? Will the Tesla Model S Plaid battery last 1 million miles? At the moment, this seems like a rare event to find one as the Model S Plaid delivery event isn’t until June 3, 2021. What do you think of the car? Will you be getting one?
