Yesterday Elon Musk wrote about the lap record achieved by Tesla Model S in Laguna Seca. Today Tesla published the video that shows from inside how the Model S Plaid? managed to record the fastest time for a four-door car. In fact, this Model S was wearing an advanced technological system called “Plaid powertrain”. But what is this?
According to subsequent tweets by Elon Musk, it is a new function that does not use one, not two, but three electric motors. Plaid Powertrain is expected to be placed in the immediate future in Model X, Model S and Roadster 2, but not in Model 3 and Model Y.
