7-Seat Tesla Model S Plaid To Enter Production Next October/November

It will feature larger, rear-facing jump seats.

Elon Musk says the production Tesla Model S Plaid will seat 7, crush the Porsche Taycan on the Nurburgring and feature larger rear seats.

This comes just after the news of the Model S Plaid beating the Taycan on the Ring. According to Musk, the updated Model S Plaid will go into production around October or November of next year. The production versions is expected to be even faster than the prototypes we keep seeing out on the Ring.

When asked about the seating for seven, Musk commented that the rear-facing seats will stay, but noted that they will be larger and more accommodating. 

Additionally, Musk says that an updated Model X and the highly anticipated new Tesla Roadster come at a later date than the launch of the Model S Plaid. Musk adds that the Roadster will “absolutely” beat the all-time Nurburgring record of 6:44.97.
