Elon Musk Describes Electric Motor, Powertrain and Other Upgrades to Model S, X and Roadster in 2020

Elon Musk says a Plaid Powertrain upgrade for the Model S, X and Roadster will be available in 2020. The new Model S will have a three-motor configuration which is also available for the next-generation Roadster. Tesla is currently racing a 7 seat Model S at Nürburgring. They will be trying to beat a track record set by a Porsche electric car.

A prototype Tesla Model S with a plaid powertrain set a Lugana Seca race track record. Tesla lapped Laguna Seca in 1:36.55 during advanced testing of their Model S Plaid powertrain and chassis prototype. This was a second faster than the record for a four-door sedan.

Other Tesla Plans for 2020

Tesla Semi production launch has been delayed until the end of 2020.
